Celebrity rehabber and father of Lindsay Lohan stands accused of getting physical in an argument with his girlfriend, who has not been named. It is alleged that the altercation left the woman with visible marks. She is said to have filed a report with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department and that led to the arrest of 50-year-old Michael Lohan.
Lohan is a current contestant in the TV show, “Dr. Drew’s Celebrity Rehab” for anger management issues rather than addiction issues as the show more commonly deals with. It seems that, with the arrest last night, if this is not an elaborate publicity stunt, Lohan really does need to sort out that temper of his!
Prior to being taken to the Sheriff’s office, Lohan was taken to a hospital, the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, when he complained of chest pains. This issue is said to have been unrelated to the incident and subsequent arrest but may have been induced by stress. Anyway, he was released and taken to the police station later that same night.
This most recent arrest comes just a week after Michael, father also to Ali (17), Cody (14) and Michael Jr. (23) was accused by his ex-girlfriend, Kate Major, of punching her in the face.
It now looks likely that Lohan will be charged with three charges: domestic violence, false imprisonment and preventing the reporting of victimization.
