Lindsay Lohan feels 'set up' after arrest

New York - Lindsay Lohan says her arrest on Wednesday morning is "really fishy".

The former Disney starlet was taken into custody for fleeing the scene of an accident but is said to have told pals she feels she has been "set up".

It had been claimed that Lindsay hit the knee of an unnamed man in his 30s as she pulled in at low speed to park her Porsche Cayenne near the Dream Hotel in New York City, but the star claims she had no idea she had struck anyone and didn't know about the incident until she was arrested when she left the hotel at around 02:30.

According to TMZ.com, Lindsay is also disputing accounts that one of her passengers got out of the vehicle to check for damages, insisting it never happened.

The Mean Girls star believes the incident is "really fishy" because the man didn't appear to have any visible injuries, though he was taken to hospital, and she plans to "fight" the allegations "to the end".

Lindsay, 26, was booked for the misdemeanour offence of leaving the scene of an accident and released with a desk appearance ticket, meaning she did not have to pay bail before release.

Though the offence is a misdemeanour, it could trigger a probation violation in her jewellery theft case as one of the conditions of probation is that she obeys all laws.
