Lindsay Lohan’s father, Michael Lohan, was apprehended and charged with 3 felony counts. Lohan was arrested at his West Hollywood home on suspicion of three different counts of domestic violence against a female living with him, according to authorities.
The arrest occurred during the same stretch of days in which his famous daughter, former child actress Lindsay was putting to rest a plea deal for her recent legal imbroglio the media has been calling “necklacegate.”
Michael Lohan had been living with his lover, Kate Major, for the past few years. While out walking in his West Hollywood neighborhood, Lohan was en route past the sheriff’s station when he was arrested.
Major alleged that Lohan had held her hostage, harming her physically, causing minor injuries, and prevented her from calling 911. The extent and nature of these injuries were not known at this time.
At the time of his arrest Lohan was charged with bodily harm to a cohabitant, hostage taking, and obstructing the filing of a victimization report, authorities explained to a New York Criminal Lawyer.
During his stay in lockup, Michael Lohan claimed to be suffering from an undisclosed medical condition for which he needed immediate treatment. Authorities transferred him immediately to a local hospital, while being held on $ 200,000.00 bail, according to a Long Island Criminal Lawyer.
It remains unconfirmed whether Lohan has posted bail. In a bizarre twist, his victim, Kate Major, said she has no idea where he is.
“I have no idea where he is, but I pressed charges because he tried to kill me!” said Major in her televised interview. Sources indicate that the domestic violence dispute was triggered by Lohan’s insistence that Kate Major be interviewed with him on the show “Celebrity Rehab.” During the time Major was in LA, Lohan was angry because he couldn’t access funds he was owed, not being able to cash a check. Major told a friend she was fearful he would take his anger out on her.
Major was quoted by her friend as saying “…he has that look in his eye.”
