Three men have alleged they were with Lindsay Lohan when she began the car chase that led to her arrest Tuesday, celebrity Web site reported.

According to the site, the men said Lohan commandeered the car outside a party in Malibu, about 20 miles away. One of the men claimed to have jumped out of the car just as Lohan accelerated. He said she ran over his foot.

Police have said two men were in the car when they found Lohan in what they call a heated argument with the mother of her former personal assistant, who quit that night, in the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium parking lot.

The mother had called 911 early Tuesday pleading frantically for help because a mysterious car was following her, according to an audio copy of the call released Thursday. The call lasted nearly three minutes.

"We were just about to park our car. We are turning home and out of nowhere a huge white GMC came up," the woman said to the dispatcher. "The gentleman jumped out of the car," she said a few seconds later. "Oh my God, sir, they're following us. We need help."

Lohan, 21, was arrested for investigation of misdemeanor driving under the influence and with a suspended license, and felony cocaine possession. She says she is innocent.

Lohan's lawyer, Blair Berk, declined to comment on the latest developments. Santa Monica police Sgt. Marty Fine referred questions to a media representative who wasn't available.
