Michael Lohan got caught up in a melee on an airplane ... but Michael wasn't the one who was out of control.
Michael works for a rehab facility in Florida and part of his job is to escort people with alcohol and drug addiction from their homes to the West Palm Beach facility.
Michael was in New York Thursday, picked up an addict and got on a JetBlue flight at LaGuardia.
Here's the problem. We're told Michael's passenger was high when he boarded and as the plane began taxiing he got belligerent ... screaming at the flight attendant who was instructed by Michael NOT to give the guy a drink.
The plane went back to the gate and security booted the guy from the plane and Michael dutifully followed.
But it wasn't over. We're told Port Authority police were about to arrest the man when Michael provided credentials from the facility showing he was caring for the man, so the cops let Lohan take the guy to a local hospital.
Michael and the addict went to the rehab facility Friday.
Hires Casey Anthony Attorney
My Baby Mama's Vagina is Bleeding in Jail
8/3/2014 9:59 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Michael Lohan has hired Casey Anthony's lawyer to stop the bleeding ... the vaginal bleeding of his pregnant baby mama who Michael claims her jailers are grossly mistreating her.
Attorney Jose Baez is now gunning for a court order forcing the jail to properly treat Kate Major's vaginal bleeding. Lohan claims Kate started bleeding this week -- on 2 separate occasions -- but both times she was taken to an infirmary and sent back to her cell.
Michael says there were no specialists to treat Kate and all they did was an ultrasound which showed a heartbeat ... but Michael says, "You know damn well if someone has vaginal bleeding while pregnant that's indicative of a miscarriage."
Michael also claims Kate -- who is behind bars over a DUI -- was forced to carry her property back to her room while she was still bleeding.
Baez will almost certainly attempt to get an order forcing the prison to have Kate examined and treated by a specialist.
We reached out to the jail for comment, so far ... no word back.
Police Probe Alleged
Threats Against Music Honcho
7/25/2014 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Michael Lohan is being investigated for allegedly threatening to burn down the house of a record label honcho who was in talks to work with his daughter Ali Lohan.
As TMZ first reported, Lindsay's little sister is trying to make a go of it as a country music singer ... with a little help from her father Michael, of course.
According to sources, Michael brokered a potential deal between Chinga Chang Records and Ali ... securing a $15,000 consulting fee for himself too. We're told when Ali got wind that Michael was cashing in on her she freaked on him.
We're told Michael tried to nix the deal with Chinga Chang (say that five times fast), and eventually got into a threatening war of words with its CEO, Dan Herman.
Law enforcement sources tell us Lohan placed calls and texts to Herman ... claiming to know his Florida home is not well-secured, and would be easy to burn down.
Herman filed a report with the State Police in Pennsylvania, where he lives ... and cops tell us they are investigating.
Michael tells TMZ ... Herman is lying about the threats, and also about having a deal with Ali.

You're This Close to Being a Killer
6/3/2014 8:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Dina Lohan was sentenced today on Long Island in her DWI case, but the judge delivered his harshest words to Dina after the fact ... saying she was lucky she didn't kill anyone.

But after Judge Engel handed down the sentence, he had rough words for Dina, saying, "The only person responsible for this ordeal is Miss Lohan. She is just lucky nobody was killed. She may not be as lucky next time"
Upon hearing that, Dina replied, "There will not be a next time."
That should be the Lohan family motto.

Michael Lohan, who art a deadbeat (allegedly)
Shallow be thy fame
Don't look so glum
And don't try to run
Because if you don't pay your damn bills already, you'll end up in jail again.
Give your kids their monthly bread (money)
And they'll forgive your trespasses,
As you forgive Kate Major, who trespasses against you.
And lead yourself not into temptation,
but deliver yourself from evil.
Seriously, enough already.

Michael Lohan's gonna have to say lots of Hail Marys -- and fork over lots of cash -- if a judge orders him to ante up thousands for his kid's Catholic school education ... but Michael says it's just more Dina BS.
Dina Lohan filed new court docs -- obtained by TMZ -- claiming Michael refuses to pay for Lindsay's brother, Cody.
Dina grouses ... Michael hasn't paid a dime, even though they were supposed to split the $10K/year tuition. Dina says she covered the first 3 years -- $30K -- but wants Michael to ante up for Cody's senior year.
But Michael's says poppycock ... telling TMZ he already gave Dina 30 grand for the school and a car for Cody. Plus, he says he's given her $1,500 a month for the last two years. And he says he's given daughter Ali $35K over the past year for an NYC apartment.
Michael says what is especially galling ... Dina blew around $10K on trips to visit her boyfriend in Texas.
Who knew she had a BF.

Michael Lohan scammed a 20-year-old guy out of $50,000 by using Lindsay Lohan to lure him into dumping money into two phony businesses ... so says the guy, who's now suing Michael.
According to court docs obtained by TMZ ... Jason Squatriglia claims Lohan convinced him to sink the $50K into a new cleaning product and a reality TV show called "Racing With the Stars."
Shocker ... neither project ever took off, according to the suit.
Squatriglia told the NYPost ... Michael loved to talk about Lindsay's career as a "big movie star" -- and dangled it to convince Jason it was safe to invest even more dough.
In the suit, Squatriglia claims MiLo took his cash and ran -- he's gotten ZERO back on the investment. He's suing to get back the 50 grand, plus $500K in damages.
Michael tells TMZ he never introduced Lindsay to Jason or insinuated she would be involved in their dealings -- and he's adamant ... he doesn't owe squat to Mr. Squat.
