Lindsay Lohan emerged unscathed, but a photographer was booked on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon after hitting the Mean Girls star's car while allegedly following her, according to Los Angeles police.

Galo Ramirez, 24, was released on $35,000 bail after colliding with Lohan's car Tuesday, a watch commander at the LAPD's Wilshire station tells the Associated Press.

Lohan, 18, was not injured in the accident, and her mother, Dina, said in a statement: "I thank God my daughter was able to walk out of the car."

The incident is one in a series of recent close calls between photogs and the stars they apparently are chasing.

In April, the target was Jennifer Lopez, who said afterwards that "paparazzi (were) trying to beat the light on the same turn," an experience that gave her "goosepimples" when the other car went "screeeech" right in front of her vehicle.

"Sometimes they feel like it's a game; like they're playing cops and robbers," said Lopez, who was unaware she was being shadowed, because "I try to block this stuff out a little bit 'cause it's the only way to kind of live."
