Lindsay Lohan is back at the forefront of the media after her misdemeanor arrest for leaving the scene of an accident made news yesterday. TMZ reports today that Amanda Bynes weighed in on the matter saying Lindsay Lohan’s troubles are a result of her own bad karma for complaining about Bynes on Twitter recently. Anderson Cooper also took to Twitter on Tuesday, just before Lohan’s Manhattan mishap, to respond to Lindsay’s complaints about Amanda Bynes. Cooper told Lohan to stop complaining and just do her job.
Lindsay Lohan was arrested outside New York’s Dream Hotel early Wednesday morning after Jose Rodriguez, a chef at nearby Maritime Hotel, reported the 26 year-old actress hit him in the leg as she was driving a 2010 Porche SUV past him. Rodriguez was taken to Bellevue Hospital where he was treated for an injury to his knee.
Lindsay was arrested around 2:30 a.m. and issued a misdemeanor ticket for leaving the scene of an accident. No breathalyzer test was done as Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said cops didn’t suspect Lindsay was impaired. She was released pending a later court date.
Jose Rodriguez told police initially that Lohan seemed disoriented, but is now saying she was slurring her speech. “She smelled like alcohol real bad”, he said, according to The New York Daily News.
On Sunday Lindsay Lohan took to Twitter to complain that Amanda Bynes seemed to be getting preferential treatment amid all of her traffic woes, compared to her.
On Tuesday’s “Anderson Live” show, host Anderson Cooper addressed Lohan’s tweeting complaints just hours before Lindsay’s latest run-in with the law. He said, “If I’m Lindsay Lohan, I would just be quiet and just do your job….Get off Twitter, just stop hanging out, and just do your job and come back. Everyone loves a comeback. Everyone’s rooting for you”, according to Eonline.
Amanda Bynes also weighed in on Lindsay Lohan’s latest legal drama according to TMZ. Amanda told friends that Lohan’s arrest is a result of karma kicking her “ass” for her negative tweets towards her.
Bynes points out that Lohan has multiple convictions on her rap sheet while she hasn’t been convicted of anything yet. Amanda said Lindsay’s problems are what she deserves for talking “smack” on Twitter and then added that Lohan is “not cool”.
Meanwhile cops say surveillance video of the slow-speed brush in the driveway between the Maritime and Dream hotels in Chelsea contradicts parts of Rodriguez’s story.
An NYPD source told The NY Daily News that the video shows Lindsay Lohan blinked her headlights at people in her path as she was attempting to park, but that Rodriguez walked right in front of her.
