Lohandad The father of actress Lindsay Lohan pleaded not guilty Monday to misdemeanor domestic violence for an alleged assault on his live-in girlfriend.

Michael Lohan, 50, was charged in March with corporal injury to a cohabitant after he allegedly assaulted the woman after they had 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 to the 8500 block of Holloway Avenue on a domestic dispute report. Michael Lohan was later arrested near 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.
