LOS ANGELES – Lindsay Lohan won’t face prosecution over a nightclub manager’s claim that the actress struck him with her sports car due to lack of evidence and doubts about his credibility, prosecutors decided Friday.

Police had asked the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office to review whether Lohan should be charged with leaving the scene of an accident, but the office determined there was insufficient evidence to pursue a case. Police interviewed the manager, reviewed surveillance footage and looked at Lohan’s Porsche and found no evidence that an accident had occurred.

Thaer Kamal, manager of the Hookah Lounge in Hollywood, accused Lohan of striking him with her Porsche early on March 14, just two weeks before the actress’ supervised probation ended. A charge evaluation worksheet noted that although Kamal called 911, he refused medical treatment at the scene and told police he had been grazed by Lohan’s car along his right leg.

He refused to cooperate on follow-up interviews until roughly two weeks later, when he gave detectives a photo of a bruised left knee and appeared for the interview with his left knee bandaged, according to the prosecutor’s summary.

“There is no direct evidence to show Lindsay Lohan or anyone else struck victim Kamal,” Deputy District Attorney John Gilligan wrote. “Victim Kamal’s changed story and lack of cooperation with law enforcement make him a non-credible witness.”

Kamal’s attorney, Mark Geragos, did not return a phone message seeking comment. Lohan’s spokesman Steve Honig declined comment.

Lohan, 25, remains on informal probation for taking a necklace without permission last year and is attempting to revive her career. She will play Elizabeth Taylor in a television movie about the actress’ love affair with co-star Richard Burton on the set of “Cleopatra.”

Madonna says she’s sad to hear of Yauch’s death

NEW YORK – Madonna says Adam Yauch, the Beastie Boys rapper who died Friday, was one of a kind and that the group was important to her musical history.

The singer said the seminal hip-hop group was “integral to the musical revolution that was happening at the time.”

Yauch, who was also known as MCA, died Friday morning in New York after a nearly three-year battle with cancer.

Madonna said she was sad to hear of Yauch’s death and asked God to bless his family.

The Beastie Boys opened for Madonna on tour in the 1980s, and the group was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame last month.

Famous figures make the scene in Louisville

LOUISVILLE, Ky. – The horses and roses weren’t the only famous attractions at the 138th Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs in Louisville.

Country singer Miranda Lambert, former University of Kentucky basketball star Anthony Davis and Terry O’Quinn, noted for his role as “John Locke” on the television series “Lost,” also made the walk of the famous.

O’Quinn appeared a bit lost when quizzed about his betting plans. When asked which horse he would bet on, O’Quinn replied: “You tell me.”

New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick and defensive linemen Chris Canty, Amobi Okoye and Connor Barwin arrived later in the day.
