Michael Lohan, father of troubled star Lindsay, was jailed in the early hours of this morning (October 25th 2011) - and more details of the arrest have been revealed, with it turning out that the 51 year-old was hauled in on a domestic battery charge after his girlfriend, 28 year-old Kathryn Major, accused him of threatening to throw her off a balcony.
Just when it seemed like things were starting to look up for 25 year-old Lindsay - having agreed to strip for Playboy for a fee close to $1 million dollars, according to Tmz.com - it's been cast into doubt again after her father allegedly became violent towards Major. Reuters UK reports that he threw a TV remote at her after they'd been discussing a restraining order that Lohan's on-off girlfriend of the past two years had taken against him. The police report claims that Major suffered minor bruising and complained of shoulder pains, though she refused medical help.
Lohan has a history of being in prison; in 1990 he was jailed for three years for insider trading when working on Wall Street. In 2005, he served two and a half years at Collins Correctional Facility after a car accident when under the influence of alcohol. He was back in rehab again in 2010, for alcoholism, this time filmed in the reality show 'American Celebrity Rehab.'
