LOS ANGELES (AP) - Prosecutors have charged Lindsay Lohan's father with a misdemeanor domestic violence charge for an alleged
attack on his ex-girlfriend.
Michael Lohan is due in court on May 23 and faces up to a year in jail if convicted. He was arrested late Monday by sheriff's deputies after his former fiancDee, Kate Major, accused him of abusing her.
The 50-year-old has been in the Los Angeles area for months and
recently attended a court hearing for his daughter where a judge
threatened to send her to jail as she took a plea deal in a necklace theft case.
The "Mean Girls" star and her father are reportedly estranged.
Michael Lohan couldn't immediately be reached for comment.
He has a history of arrests in New York over allegations of
harassment from ex-girlfriends.
