(TMZ) Lindsay Lohan struck someone while driving away from a club in Hollywood overnight, and then fled the scene … TMZ has learned.

Lindsay was in her new Porsche when she left the Sayers Club just after midnight Wednesday.

We’re told she was driving out of the parking lot when she was blocked by paparazzi and bystanders around the nearby Hookah Lounge.

Lindsay made contact with the manager of the Hookah Lounge with her car and then peeled out.

Cops were called, came to the scene, interviewed people inside the Hookah Lounge — including the manager who was lightly struck — and then left.

We’re told Lindsay may have been the one who called police to protect herself from paparazzi, and that’s why cops came.

Sources at the scene say the manager may not have suffered any injury. If that’s the case, Lindsay probably did not violate any law, but if he was injured that could constitute the crime of hit-and-run. What’s more, it could be grounds to violate her probation in the shoplifting case.

UPDATE 6:06 AM: The plot thickens … Sources tell us, the club manager who Lindsay struck has gone to the emergency room and we’re told he is going to press charges and hire an attorney. Cops told us they will open a hit-and-run investigation if the manager files a report.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … the manager was standing by his car when Lindsay was attempting a 3-point turn and she grazed his knee and his car. We’re told the manager didn’t know who Lindsay was at first and he told the paparazzi on scene that he was fine. Cops say he was told the driver was Lindsay but he said he wasn’t from this country and didn’t know who she was. We’re told a short time later he began complaining he was injured.

UPDATE 3:15 AM: Cops tell TMZ … they have investigated and determined no one was injured so as far as they are concerned it’s case closed. They added it could be reopened if the person struck contacts them later and claims injury.

    Poor Lindsay, man. Of course a hookah bar owner who breathes in green apple soot all day would press charges against someone so wealthy. What he doesn’t get is that she can get hauled into jail for violating her parole. Which is sad since the past month she’s been trying so hard to prove to everyone that she’s learning and trying to grow up as much as she can. This girl is going to end up never leaving her house and developing PSTD. She should’ve stayed at the scene but it could be that she never realized that she “grazed” someone’s knee. Hookah man will get his one day.
