Lindsay Lohan's father, Michael Lohan, told police after his alleged attack last night that the assailant slashed his neck.

As TMZ first reported, Michael claims he was attacked outside his home in Santa Monica, CA. Michael told police ... about an hour before the incident, he received a threatening phone call. We're told shortly after the call, Michael went out for cigarettes -- that's when he says the attack occurred.

Sources tell us ... Mike explained to police when he went to open his car door, he was jumped from behind. We're told the suspect, whom Michael says is in his 50s or 60s, began choking him and had some kind of sharp object which he used to slice Michael's neck.  Michael says the knife penetrated his skin and caused substantial bleeding.

According to sources, Michael says the man cut him again as he fought the guy off. The suspect eventually fled on foot.

As for possible motive, sources close to Michael say he's telling friends he feels it's someone who doesn't want him to show up at Lindsay's court hearing today. So basically ... everyone.

HE SHOULD BE ABLE TO SEE HIS DAUGHTER. THE GUY OBVIOULSY CARES. PEOPLE MAKE MISTAKES AND HE SEEMS LIKE HE IS TRYING. HE WAS THE ONE TO SAY THAT LINDSAY HAS A DRUG PROBLEM..AND HE WAS RIGHT. DINA IS MORE OF A PROBLEM. SHE LET THE GIRL GET OUT OF REHAB AND LET HER LIVE THE WAY SHE WAS LIVING. DINA COVERED UP THE WHOLE PASSPORT LIE TOO. I ALMOST FEEL BAD FOR MICHAEL LOHAN, BUT HE NEEDS TO STAY AWAY FROM THE MEDIA.

Jesus Christ, another Michael Lohan publicity stunt so soon after the last one? Who does this as*wipe think he's fooling?

This is how he pays his rent. He stages ridiculous situations that put him in the limelight, then sells the story to the gossip tabloids. Pathetic... Lindsay must be so ashamed of him.

Maybe that's his plan? If Lindsay will just start paying his way again she won't have to be constantly embarrassed by the goof balls publicity stunts for cash. Just pay up and he'll quietly fade away and stop publicly humiliating her.

No one deserves to be cursed with a father like this! Damned you Michael Lohan.

Another day, another ML publicity stunt. Nothing new there! Hopefully this time he's overplayed his hand and will be charged with filing a false police report...

Maybe he's angling for an addiction to fame, so that he can get into the media. IMHO that is the only explanation for a stunt like this a day after he says he won't be talking to the media anymore.

This comes RIGHT AFTER he vowed not to talk about Lindsay/Dina/the family anymore. He had to find some way to get attention!
