Deputies Arrive at Lindsay Lohan's House

4/22/2010 3:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned the L.A. County Sheriff's Department just showed up at Lindsay Lohan's apartment accompanied by Michael Lohan to check on Lindsay's sister's welfare.

Sources tell TMZ Michael went to the Sheriff's Department and said 16-year-old Ali Lohan was staying with Lindsay and he was concerned for her safety.
Lindsay just tweeted she is angry at building management for letting the cops and Michael in.

Michael, we're told, convinced deputies to go to Lindsay's pad to do a "welfare check" on Ali.

We're told Ali was in the apartment and deputies spoke with her.  Deputies left and Ali was allowed to stay with Lindsay.

We're told Michael is now going to the L.A. County Department of Children and Family Services, per the advice of the Sheriff's Department.

Sources say Michael made a "compelling case" to Sheriff's deputies -- we're told Michael told deputies Ali was in Lindsay's car on the way back from Coachella and the car was going over 100 mph.

We're told Dina Lohan wants Lindsay to get a restraining order.  Problem is ... Michael had the legitimacy of the Sheriff's Dept. behind him, so it's unlikely a judge will see it Dina's way.

We just shot video of Michael leaving the Sheriff's Department in West Hollywood.

Dina Lohan just told us, "I was told by my attorneys not to speak because it is very serious and my ex could be in big trouble.  He's dangerous.... If he can't get to them he is going to try to hurt them -- it's not good."

Michael Lohan may be a douchebag and a famewhore, and his motives may be horrible, but he's 100% right in this case. A barely 16 year old girl should be in school and in a stable home, not under the supervision of her hard-partying 20-something sister. What a mess. Baby sister is still a minor and there are truancy laws in CA. Why didn't they pursue them?

First of all Linds is killing herself and Ali is right behind her. Dina just likes being in the 'spot light" and her girls do that for her. Michael....well I would think if he was wanted for anything the cops would have known and done something about it. I use to really like Lindsay, I loved all her movies, but now it's very sad and hopefully someone will help her and we won't see her name in the obituaries. We'll see!

I don't know if the girl need help or not, but the father sure does.

If he were really concerned about the younger daughter he could just have checked in on her (if necessary with sherrif) and then left quietly. But no, the guy holds a press conference and talks to every pap he can get to talk to him.....He probably tipped off the paperazzi in the first place to be sure they reported on his "heroic" actions. This guy is a classic narcissist--addicts usually are. I think the term is dry drunk.

How does everyone on this site have such absolute certainty that Lindsay Lohan is such a terrible addict? Because of some photos of her tripping over her heels or something? Because her nut-job father says so? Because Dr.Drew (who admits he has never met her) says so? Because a college-age girl stays out till wee hours of the morning?

Maybe she has a problem, maybe she doesn't, but how can all you people be so certain about someone you've never met? It's not as if any information comes from reputable sources. Just wondering....

why is everyone calling Michael a douche. Sure yes he is a douche BUT in this case he has a point. Lidsay is a mess and there is a picture where Lindsay took her 16yr old sister to a freaken club!!!! how could anyone side with her. Michael is a douche and is out for whats best for him but in this case, Dina and lindsay are way out of line!

THAT MAN is the father of a minor-aged daughter. He has more rights in this matter than Lindsey. It's about time a parent ruled the child instead of the child ruling the parent(s). Kudos to the Sheriff's deputies for going over there with Michael. Driving in excess of 100 mph is Illegal in California. Lindsey does not obey any laws so she needs to stf up.

Dina Lohan is just as screwed up as her ex-husband (Michael) and her drunk and drugged out kid (Lindsey). The best thing that could happen to all of them is to put them all on an island and come back a month later. Who ever is left standing gets a reality show.

Go Michael, the responsible parent! Would someone please put Lindsay in rehab, what a bad influence on her sister. Lindsay will be the next one that dies from what she does.

What a whacked family! Why would they leave their 16 year old with a big drug addict? Ali looks like an OLD lady! Even older than Lindsay the old hag!

Why are people attacking the only person who is trying to help her? Obviously, her mother is only concerned about money, press time, and trying to further paint her ex husband as "evil" - but the kicker is, the ex husband is the ONLY one who is remotely concerned about Lindsay.

Dina is going to feel really bad if there is a sad ending to this scenario - what decent mother would have allowed a 16 year old to be in the company of someone so allegedly out of control. I think Family and Childrens Services needs to step in and one, remove Ali from the care of Dina, and impose a court order prohibiting Ali to be around Lindsay unless supervised by a responsible adult - and her Dad needs to be allowed to issue a mental health welfare warrant of some sort to get her into treatment. She is not only a danger to herself, but to others when she is at the wheel of a vehicle.

Is Michael Lohan harassing her? If you ask Lindsay or Dina, sure he is - but he is her parent, and if Dina doesn't want to bother with intervening, then get the hell out of the way and let SOMEONE who cares intervene. If she were my child, you better believe I'd be "harassing" her.

I worked in education with emotionally disturbed children for quarter century, and my experience informs me that these girls never had a chance. With parents like these they were predisposed to failure as human beings.

Too bad for the sister, the older one is a train wreck waiting and she will likely damage her sister in the process.

good for dad! he has a duty to alli. lisnday:
1. if your dad never paid child support the court would find him in contept and but him in jail
2. there is still hope for Alli unlike Lindsay - no one cares about you. but your sister could be a STAR! let her
3. your "mommy" (grow up) should learn from your dad.
4. be gratful you have a dad who cares b/c no one else seems to
