Lindsay: I Was 'Nice' to Crash Photog
Lindsay Lohan
Lindsay Lohan, whose car crash with a photographer last week was called "intentional" by police, labeled the incident "a frightening experience" and suggested, "There's a line that needs to be drawn now."

The actress, who at this weekend's 2005 MTV Movie Awards was honored for best female performance (for Mean Girls), suffered cuts and bruises when paparazzo Galo Ramirez, 24, was allegedly trailing her and intentionally rammed the left rear of Lohan's 2005 Mercedes-Benz, police said.

As Lohan recounted the incident, according to the Associated Press: "I was so shaken up, but I was still nice 'cause I was like, 'I understand it's your job. But you don't have to ram into me next time. I'll give you a picture.'"

Ramirez was arrested for investigation of assault with a deadly weapon but has since been released on bail, which reportedly is set at $35,000.

For Lohan, whose new movie Herbie: Fully Loaded opens June 22, the past few months have brought major ups and downs.

Besides breaking up with That '70s Show star Wilmer Valderrama, she was hospitalized for exhaustion and the subject of rumors after having lost at least 20 lbs. Also, her estranged father, Michael Lohan, has faced numerous arrests.

Says Lindsay: "I'm an 18-year-old girl, and I've dealt with so many things in this past year."
