Like father, like daughter! Lol

It's a family affair...

Wow, what a shock.

he and sheen,busey should all get get along great on the show, EL Wackos!

The 'nut' does not fall too far from tree...

We know the past history of 'dad'. If you have watched any past shows or interviews with 'mom', "my daughter is just a normal young woman"...and of course, 'little miss perfect', Lindsay...the whole family needs a large 'net' thrown over them.

They should make a new tv series, "The Lawless Lohans"

The cops just have a vendetta against this family. The bail is ridiculus

Why is this guy considered a celebrity?

must be a family tradition going to jail and all.................

the spotlight shifts...

Get down to the PD with your checkbook, Lindsay!

he dosent have two thousand dollars.

The new method of seeking fame is to get arrested. Media is the enabler.

When will the 15 minutes of fame for this disgusting family be over? It can't happen soon enough. Losers one and all. Why do we worship dysfunction in America today?

Another Hollywood fool trying to capitalize off his silly daughters fame. Keep your 20k Lindsay, let him rot in jail.

I was at a meeting in that very neighborhood last night, too bad I missed this little spectacle. But Michael lives nearby and I always see him outside his condo bldg, pacing in the yard and screaming into the cell phone. I figure he is advising Lindsey on how to live with dignity.

He must be sharing the same pipe with his daughter.

"he dosent have two thousand dollars."
not even 2$

The over/unders on when he will get out of jail is 5 days.

By no means am I perfect, but this family needs some help!!!!!

Its just a publicity stunt for the show...wake up!

Lohan Family - poster children for "white trash."

Wow…Michael Lohan is mean and vicious. I didn’t know he was like that. I hope they put him on jail and throw away the key and if Kate if even thinks about going back to him after this she deserves what he gives her.
