Stuttgart implies Lindsay's lying (Photo : Reuter)
Lindsay Lohan's bad brakes excuse is bogus.
This is what TMZ says, after "sources" told the gossip blog that the brakes on Lohan's rented Porsche 911 have been tested by Porsche itself and found to be functioning perfectly.
On June 8, Lohan and her assistant were hospitalized with minor injuries after the rented 911 Lohan was driving crashed into the back of an 18-wheeler, wrecking the car.

Lohan was said to have blamed the truck driver for the accident (she said he cut her off; he denied it), and then further said that when she tried to hit the brakes, nothing happened.
Her excuses, according to TMZ, reached some very interested ears in Stuttgart, who contacted the rental company and asked to run the tests.
If Lohan was fibbing, it was perhaps because she feared yet more bad publicity surrounding her driving.
Her first headline-grabbing fender-bender occurred in May 2005, when her Mercedes SL 65 AMG was hit by an overzealous member of the paparazzi, whose recklessness resulted in his arrest.
In October of that year, again in the SL 65, Lohan broadsided a minivan while attempting to dodge the paparazzi. This time, sympathy for her was mixed.
The year 2007 held more serious travails for Lohan and the SL 65. In May of that year, Lohan ran the beleaguered roadster onto a curb. Police determined her to be driving under the influence.
Later that year, shortly out of rehab and with her license suspended, she was again arrested, this time for drunk driving, cocaine possession, and driving without a license.
It was Lohan's difficulty in obeying the terms of the probation that resulted from these DUIs that led to her various legal woes in 2010 and 2011.
Or most of them. She was arrested for shoplifting a necklace early in 2011, pleaded no-contest, avoided jail because of overcrowding, and is on probation anew.
