Michael Lohan: 'I Was Attacked'

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.

Oh boy, here we go. He announces he won't be talking to the media about his daughter anymore, so what does he do - make up some drama about getting attacked just so he can keep his name in the news and get sympathy. Poor Lindsay, what **** she's had to take from this guy her whole life - no wonder she's messed up.

Hahaha. Is this guy for real? How did tmzget there unlessMichael called them (before the police)? He dreamed up this scenario - Lindsay sees he was "attacked" and says oh no something could happen to dear old dad, I better let him in my life! Except that she probably is fine with him being attacked. She figures slashing his throat might be the only way to keep him quiet!

I knew he was going to do something to end up back whored out to the media.. this is just pathetic though. No one wants him, his kids... ex wife... people reading TMZ! I hope this is the last we hear of him for a long long time. I find it hard to believe that an elderly gentlement wouldn't just pay a punk to do it for him? Come onnnn.

I have never seen a father who needs more attention. What a putz. If he really loved his daughter he would stay out of the limelight and the let the family heal. Instead, he gets "mugged." Unbelievable.

Michael Lohan have some serious issues. His obession with his daughter's attention is out of control and clearly suggest Lindsay, his ex and other children are not safe. This has gone too far. It is quite clear what the problem is, and he needs to move on with his life. He frightens me just reading his comments and displaying such unstable behavior.
