Michael Lohan possibly faces multiple felonies in alleged domestic violence incident
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.
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.
