Michael Lohan Michael Lohan potentially faces multiple felony charges in connection with a domestic dispute at a West Hollywood apartment, Los Angeles County sheriff's officials said Tuesday.

The father of actress Lindsay Lohan was arrested Monday night on suspicion of false imprisonment, corporal injury on a cohabitant and preventing a report of victimization, said Steve Whitmore, spokesman for the L.A. County Sheriff's Department.

The L.A. County district attorney's office had not yet filed charges, a spokeswoman said Tuesday.

Sheriff's deputies were called around 9 p.m. to the 8500 block of Holloway Avenue in relation to a domestic dispute, Whitmore said.

Michael Lohan was later arrested a short distance from the West Hollywood sheriff's station when deputies saw him walking in the 8800 block of Santa Monica Boulevard.

After being booked, Lohan was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center after complaining of "a medical condition not related to the incident," sheriff's officials said in a statement. His bail was set at $200,000.

The alleged victim, who was not identified, had minor injuries but refused treatment from Los Angeles County Fire Department paramedics.

Michael Lohan's arrest comes as Lindsay Lohan awaits a preliminary hearing on grand theft charges for allegedly stealing a necklace from a Venice jewelry store.
