Michael Lohan charged with misdemeanor domestic violence

Michaellohan The father of actress Lindsay Lohan was charged Wednesday with misdemeanor domestic violence for an alleged assault on his live-in girlfriend.

Michael Lohan, 50, was charged with corporal injury to a cohabitant following his Monday arrest. He is expected to be arraigned May 23 in Beverly Hills Superior Court.

Prosecutors allege Lohan physically assaulted his live-in girlfriend Monday after the two argued. The victim, whose name was not released by police, suffered minor injuries.

Michael Lohan told Radar Online that his on-again-off-again girlfriend, Kate Majors, attacked him.

He faces a maximum sentence of one year in county jail if convicted.

Sheriff's deputies were called about 9 p.m. Monday to the 8500 block of Holloway Avenue in relation to a domestic dispute. 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.

Why don't they take the whole Lohans' and put them into one cell. Much cheaper for the taxpayer!!


Even if he did do it, she was probably asking for it :)

Great role model for your kid.

To use a trite old adage, clearly the apple doesn't fall far from the tree.
