Lohan Dad Arrested In WeHo On Domestic Violence Charges

WEST HOLLYWOOD (CBS) — The father of troubled actress Lindsay Lohan was arrested in West Hollywood for allegedly holding his girlfriend against her will and causing minor injuries, sheriff’s deputies said Tuesday.

Sheriff’s deputies received a domestic violence call and found 50-year-old Michael Lohan about 9 p.m. Monday walking in the 8800 block of Santa Monica Boulevard, near San Vicente Boulevard, Sgt. John Ratto of the sheriff’s West Hollywood Station said.

Lohan was booked on suspicion of preventing report of victimization, false imprisonment and inflicting corporal injury on a cohabitant, Ratto said.

Bail was set at $200,000.

Lohan was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center after complaining of a medical condition unrelated to the arrest, authorities said.

The girlfriend’s name was withheld and she declined medical treatment from Los Angeles County Fire Department paramedics, Ratto said.

People Magazine reported that Lohan, who has had past run-ins with the law and has previously done time behind bars, appears not to have been on probation at the time of arrest.

In a bid to treat anger management issues, Lohan is a participant in VH1’s upcoming season of “Dr. Drew’s Celebrity Rehab.”

    It’s really pathetic that the media constanttly shoves this Lohan family train wreck down our throats instead of REAL NEWS. This is a great example you’re setting for our kids. If the media really wants to perform a public service, which is what they’re supposed to be doing, they should BAN The Lohans, Charlie Sheen, Chris Brown, Paris Hilton and the rest of the Hollywood idiots from TV for a year. If we would stop glorifying bad behavior and keep them off the tube when they act like criminals, our idiot celebrities would grow up and act like adults.

    When I first saw the headline I thought maybe he gave Lindsay a good slap. That would have done her some good. Too bad it’s his girlfriend instead.
