Sources tell TMZ Michael's story goes like this: He was getting into his car shortly before 10:00 PM when someone came up behind him and started to choke him. Michael is telling cops he fought with the suspect before the man took off running.

We're told Michael described the suspect as a white male in 50s or 60s -- yes, that old -- who is wearing a black running suit.

The Santa Monica Police Department got a 911 call at 9:56 PM and responded to the scene.  Michael was shirtless when officers and paramedics arrived (seen above) and we're told he had scratches on his neck. Cops are still investigating on scene.

Daddy Lohan's drama comes just hours after Lindsay Lohan left rehab to attend her probation violation hearing in Beverly Hills Friday morning.

Who ever this guy is, he needs to be recognized as a national hero and he should have his own Kennedy Center Honors event where he speeches and songs should adorn him.

Fifty to 60 years of age? Shoot, people that old are in bed asleep by 9 p.m., not out mugging others.

There's a bodyguard that's between jobs right now. Maybe MiLo should contact the bodyguard group.

I bet he hired someone to "jump" him, he might think this could make his family feel sorry for him and call to see if he is ok. Plus he might also think there will be some TV interviews that might come from this that will land him some extra cash too.

He almost lasted 2 days! What he wanted to say was Dina got into town, hid in the alley next to his studio apartment, armed with a dull shiv, laid in wait and attacked him but he can't say anything because he's living up to his word this time - no media. Damn you Dina!

Lindsay's in town and he didn't want her to forget he's in LA... waiting for her mwahahaahaha!

It wasn't Michael who told TMZ about this, you idiots. It was another source. See if you can re-read it and get it straight. This is scary stuff. Glad the man didn't have a knife!

Michael fought with the attacker, he ran away, got in his spaceship and split for the planet Uranus.

Sounds like BS to me. And this just 24 hours after he vowed that he'd stop seeking media attention. So much for that vow.

"We're told Michael described the suspect as a white male in 50s or 60s -- yes, that old -- who is wearing a black running suit." Sounds like either Dina or Kate Major had their hair tied back under the hood - easy mistake...
