Michael Lohan arrested for three counts of felony domestic violence (update)

In one of an ongoing series of incidents of domestic violence, Michael Lohan was arrested late Monday night after allegedly abusing his girlfriend, who is not named. (It may have been his ex fiance, Kate Major, but it could have been some new girlfriend. Update – it was Kate Major, see below.) I expect to see leaked nude photos of his target any day now.

According to the police report and as detailed on TMZ a phone call was made reporting domestic violence. Cops arrested Lohan and booked him at the station, at which point he asked to go to the hospital for chest pains. (TMZ reports it like he went to the hospital before he was booked, but the police report says he was booked first.) He was then transported to Cedars Sinai. According to People Magazine, he’s still at the hospital. Lohan’s victim had “minor injuries,” but refused treatment. Lohan’s bail has been set at $200,000.

This comes right after a story last week from Lohan’s ex fiance, Kate Major, that he went after her in an angry rage. Kate claims to be broken up with Michael, but to have agreed to go to couples’ therapy with him as part of his treatment for the VH1 reality show Celebrity Rehab. According to Kate, she decided not to participate in therapy when she learned that Lohan had been seeing other women. As reprisal, Michael Lohan chased after her and punched her friend in the face or something. Note that this is a completely different incident from the one Lohan was arrested for.

“I agreed privately to go to Celebrity Rehab over the weekend for couples therapy even though we’ve been broken up – I thought it would be therapeutic for both of us,” Kate told RadarOnline.com in an exclusive interview.

“However, I found out all the lies that have been going on with myself, with his friends and with his family in the past few months.

“I still agreed to go to therapy last night though and that’s when all hell broke loose. When I turned up at the center I found out Michael had lied to me about numerous things, including other women. I immediately called the counselors and said I would not be attending the therapy session and I left.

“Michael found out and fled the Pasadena Recovery Center on foot and found me and a friend that I was with. This is when I became very afraid of him and my life and other situations.

“One of the producers found out about Michael leaving rehab and chased after him in his car.

“In the meantime, Michael ripped a bracelet off my hand and then punched my girlfriend in the face –it was all caught on camera.

“I was very emotional, and I was very, very scared. The producer tried to get me into his car, along with Michael but I was very fearful, I would not be in the same car as him because of past physical abuse.”

Supposedly that incident with Kate Major’s friend getting punched was all caught on tape by the celebrity rehab people. This guy is an abusive ex con who spent about two years in jail on a four year sentence for multiple charges including DUI and assault. He was released in March, 2007. It’s a shame that he hasn’t violated his probation with this latest incident because he’ll probably get off with a slap on the wrist, just like his famous daughter. I look forward to seeing his mugshot at least.

Update: TMZ has “alleged” details from the night that Lohan was arrested and it involved Kate Major and includes him throwing her across the room and choking her with a towel.

    I hope they slam his ass back to jail!

  2. Quest says:

    This whole family have serious issues. They all should be behind bars. Too much drama in one small family circle

  3. Chris says:

    I can just see him doing his best Doctor Smith impersonation as the cops arrived “Oh the pain…the pain!”

  4. Johnny Depp's Girl says:

    Lindsay’s role model

  5. Rita says:

    There seems to be a complete disconnect in the LoClan between consequences and behavior modification.

  6. the_blonde_one says:

    and yet…and yet…women keep dating him. he’s ugly, looks like a two pump wonder, hasn’t any money, doesn’t seem particularly charming, i could go on and on. why?

  7. jokerjim says:

    A filthy disgusting family, they are completely valueless!!! Although, until the media stops covering their every move, they will not go away. They are useless fame whores, they should all go farrrrr away/

  8. Westcoaster says:

    Maybe Micheal and Lindsey can be put into prison cells next to each other. If Dina would mess up as well then the other Lohan children might have a chance at a normal life.

  9. heb says:

    ugh i don’t want to see those pics of Kate’s vag again, yuck

  10. Diane says:

    Why the hell anyone would want to have anything to do with this loser is beyond me.

  11. Anoneemouse says:

    See that anger management rehab did you wonders….loser

  12. Sassy says:

    The Lohan family is one big epic FAIL.

  13. Disco says:

    You know what really bothers me about this? Okay–there are several things, but this is a biggie. If the whole situation was caught on tape then there must have been a whole group of people watching it go down. Why didn’t anyone intervene???? They just stood back and watched him punch a woman in the face?


  14. xxodettexx says:

    i am sure this has been asked already but: WHY IS THIS VIOLENT DOUCHEBAG STILL WALKING AROUND FREE??

    sidebar: my brother’s high school girlfriend got him arrested when he was 17 bc she told people that he “forced” her to walk around a tree during high noon until she was so tired and dehydrated she passed out… they called it domestic violence, he spent 6 months in county jail and has been paying for that felony since that time… when he was 24, his ex FINALLY has the decency to admit she made it all up… yes, made it all up… and yet, my brother is still paying for it…

    and then we have the lohans…

    The rotten apple didn’t fall far from this corrosive family tree, did it now?

  16. happygirl says:

    Morning ladies! :)

    This tool is on probation, right? How does a felony arrest not violate his probation? Does he have to be convicted first? Granted, I don’t know what the law on this is, because I’m not a crack felon! Ugh!!!! Is he just competing with Lindsanity? I don’t get it. But hey…better get back to filming Celebrity Rehab…just love how he gets arrested and THEN starts to feel chest pains….nice and convenient, there, TOOLBAG.

  17. the original bellaluna says:

    @ Rita, brin, happygirl, et al – Mornin!

    Is there some different set of laws on the books applicable only to this cracked-out crew? And how is there no “3 strikes”-type law for domestic abuse? (I don’t mean in cases like @ xxodettexx’s brother; I mean the stuff we survived through.)

  18. happygirl says:

    @ the original bellaluna ~ Mornin’!

    I agree, “The Pretty Reckless” – the family, not the band…must have their own set of laws. I don’t get it. At all. Baffles my mind!!

  19. Estella says:

    I don’t like throwing shade at the “victim” but wasn’t Kate Major at one time a writer for Star magazine? Furthermore, didn’t she “date” John Gosselin? If this dv incident was caught on tape, I suppose there is no arguing with that evidence. I am just saying that Kate’s motives for being anywhere NEAR Michael Lohan are questionable. We are living in the era of “What would you do for reality TV – or for your fifteen minutes plus of fame?” Some hos will do anything – even take a beating. I predict Kate will come out with a book and/or series of paid interviews in 3, 2, 1…

  20. lilred says:

    Pretty sad, the Lohan’s actually make trailer trash look classy.

  21. mln76 says:

    I love how even when it’s a slime ball like Micheal Lohan there are still comments blaming the victim. Lohan is a convicted felon, and he has a history of violence. No one deserves to be hit even if they are on a reality show.

  22. TG says:

    This family is just like the typical family and situations (read: Trash) you see on those Cops shows, the only difference is one of the daughters is a celeb.

  23. Johnny Depp's Girl says:

    @Just Sayin.. LMFAO


  24. Macey says:

    I have no sympathy for Kate what so ever. She continues to go back to him even after he sold her pics. Im not sure who is more pathetic, him or her.

  25. k.at says:

    Why does he have his cell phone clipped onto his pants UNDERNEATH A CELL PHONE CARRIER? What the hell is that? It looks douche-ish enough one way or the other, but to have both just pushes this over the edge. Sorry, don’t really care about the story, just the total tool-ness of Michael Lohan

  26. sandy says:

    i smell reality t.v. in the works. lol someone is trying to get paid.

  27. craigc says:

    Lol!!! Look at the top photo…

    D O U C H E !!!!!!!

  28. helen says:

    If he wasn’t being photographed and having his photo published, being paid to do reality shows and interviews, he might eventually moderate his behaviour, but he loves the attention, doesn’t he? Fair enough to report on it, but I think it would really help if the media banned photos of him and stopped paying him for anything. Apart from anything, then girls like Kate Major would probably leave him alone, which would be good news for them.
