TMZ has learned Michael Lohan has been charged with 2nd degree harassment for allegedly attacking his fiancee Kate Major earlier this week.
Lohan was charged by the Southampton Police Department -- that's the way it works in N.Y. -- but he will be formally arraigned on August 18.
If Lohan fails to appear -- a judge can issue a bench warrant for his arrest.
