Michael Lohan

BUSTED For Domestic Violence

10/25/2011 4:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Lohan Mugshot
Michael Lohan is cooling his ass in a Tampa jail this morning after getting arrested on suspicion of domestic violence charges.

Tampa Police arrested Lindsay Lohan's dad at 1:10AM ET after they responded to reports of a fight between Michael and a live-in girlfriend. Law enforcement sources confirm it was Lohan's on again-off again GF Kate Major.

Now this part is classic Lohan: We're told Michael complained of chest pains when he was taken into custody -- so police took him to a hospital. We're told Michael was treated, and then was attempting to slip out of the hospital on his own -- until an officer spotted him, hauled him down to jail and booked him for the alleged domestic violence.

Tampa PD's website lists him as still in custody.

Michael was last arrested for domestic violence by LAPD back in March after an alleged fight with Major. Interestingly, he also complained of chest pains during that arrest.

Fun fact: Michael's Tampa arrest report says he's actually employed ... as director of marketing for Larsen Pharmaceuticals. In this economy?

A response to lumping in Michael Jr., Ali, and Cody with Micheal Sr., Lindsay, and Dina.

People aren't living in the real world if they think that Michael Lohan and Dina are so bad. They aren't great but there are far worse parents in the world than them whose kids turned out law-abiding and productive. And what type of logic leads to the conclusion that the kids have no chance? Really? Isn't Michael Jr., soon to be 24, a college grad that graduated summa ***** laude, has 2 jobs and a steady girlfriend for 3 years plus, a person that has a chance to do well in his life. And Ali Lohan is going off the rails? By what logic does anyone see this? Because people keep repeating it over and over? So she's a little thin, she doesn't dress or present herself like that idiot little twit Courtney Stoddard, hasn't shown any of the typical 17 year old girl wildness of a Miley Cyrus or Taylor Momsen at a similar age, doesn't respond to numerous charges made about her on twitter or show she's weak minded in any way but rather the contrary, and there's no indication whatsoever that she's anything but a young girl that is focused on an opportunity given her: modeling. And her last modeling shots are being favorably judged by people that matter: those in the industry. Cody is not visible but if he was a juvenile delinquent in any way it would be plastered all over the tabloids. So, there's no basis really to say the kids have no chance. They do. And they are doing fine. And I just came out of my silence here to speak out for them since everyone else seems to repeat the same baseless thought that there's something wrong with them when there's no evidence that there is. The screw ups are primarily Lindsay and Michael Sr. with Dina making stupid comments every one in a while but not getting in trouble with the law. The other 3 Lohans have done nothing to deserve being lumped in with their poorly behaved relatives.

1) Always gets arrested for Domestic Violence
2) Always has chest pains when getting arrested
3) Kate Major needs to kick him in his balls next time he hits her
4) Employed by a drug manufacturer, REALLY? Impossible. You have to have a clean rap sheet to work for a drug company.
5) He tried to escape police custody while in the hospital. Shouldn't that be an added charge? Is Florida going the same route as California?
6) This family is FUBAR !!

It's a point in his favor that Mike tried to slip out of custody -


I like him more now.


I also dig the chest-pains routine - hey - why not.

Lohans & Jacksons.

Can't the media ignore all these dysfunctional families full of attention whores & concentrate on REAL celebrities who add something positive to the industry or world?

It's no coincidence that the talented celebrities aren't more interested in the spotlight than in doing their jobs & living a private life like sane people.

I knew he was going to be in the media somehow. I guess he couldn't top Lindsay's messy situation, so he created his own. With parents like that (Michael/Dina), it's a wonder Lindsay is as "sane" as she is.
