Michael Lohan -- 2nd Degree Harassment, Really?

Michael Lohan's lawyer is scoffing at allegations that he physically attacked and threatened to kill Kate Major, claiming if he really did then why was he charged with a petty offense?

Lisa Bloom tells TMZ, "Most often, second degree harassment violations are resolved by the payment of a fine of up to $250."  Bloom adds, "Second degree harassment is the lowest level charge that can be brought in connection with an alleged domestic violence incident, when there are no substantial physical injuries alleged, which is the case here."

Bloom says Lohan, who has not yet been served with the criminal complaint, is "100% innocent."
