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.

So, out of curiosity. If a guy calls YOUR phone, makes a threat, WOULDN'T YOU BE SCARED TO LEAVE THE HOUSE? Better yet, if you were going to leave, WOULDN'T YOU MAKE SURE YOU HAD SOMEONE WITH YOU?? Guy's a skeezball, needs to get rehab for himself. The kind where they lock him in a room and teach him how to be a FATHER instead of a PUBLICITY SUCKER.

If this really happened I feel bad for the guy because he's such a pathological liar, he's made it so noone believes him.
What a sad life.

I agree with all the other comments. This guy was supposed to be done speaking with the media. Yet he can't go 2 days without doing something to get himself back in the press. He is just an attention seeker. Its no wonder that poor girl is so messed up with parents like she's got. That man needs serious help but the media needs to QUIT reporting on him. Just like Heidi & Spencer, they need to quit reporting on Michael Lohan. He has done nothing worthwhile to report on.
