Michael Lohan was arrested early Tuesday in Florida on suspicion of domestic violence after allegedly getting into it with on-and-off girlfriend Kate Major over a scheduled court hearing and, well, maybe a little sumpin’ sumpin’ else.

‘She had some redness on her arms, some minor bruising and it was determined that he grabbed her arm and threw her to the ground a couple of times,’ Tampa police spokeswoman Andrea Davis told the Associated Press.


Major told police Lohan had showed up at her place with a suitcase, and that she let him in the door to stay on his good side before a Tuesday hearing on whether to make her most recent temporary restraining order against him permanent, according to a police report obtained by TMZ. Lohan later got violent with her and yelled at her about the hearing and because she wouldn’t have oral sex with him.

Lohan’s version of events, as recorded in that police report? He told police Major was drunk after a night out at a restaurant and needed a ride home, where they had an argument and then had sex and wound up fighting over the details of how to end that encounter. Lohan denied assaulting Major, but said he busted her cellphone on the corner of a table because he was angry.

Lohan was arrested in L.A. in March after an alleged domestic violence incident also involving Major, misdemeanor charges were dismissed after she didn’t show up in court in July.

Though the latest incident is hardly the first time Lohan, 51, has been arrested on suspicion of manhandling the ladies in his life, this time there was a new twist: After being taken into custody, he complained of chest pains and was taken to a hospital. When he thought the police had gone, he tried to check himself out and leave, Davis said. Alas, no luck — the officers hadn’t gone anywhere.

Major was granted a temporary protective order against her ex-fiance Oct. 3, according to TMZ, after complaining to the court that he’d been harassing and threatening her and her father. Lohan was ordered to stay 500 feet away from her, and prohibited from texting or phoning Major or having her or her father followed.

Lohan, who told police that he and Major moved to Florida to get away from the media attention surrounding his daughter Lindsay Lohan, previously went to prison on attempted assault and aggravated harassment charges, plus a criminal contempt count after he pleaded guilty to violating a protective order obtained against him by his now ex-wife, Dina Lohan.

This was the third restraining order against Lohan that has been sought by Major, 28, a tabloid reporter who dated Jon Gosselin before hooking up with Lohan. Major and Lohan got engaged in April 2010, which could have a little sumpin’ sumpin’ to do with that one guy and his repeated declarations that the end of the world is nigh.
