Cops in Boca Raton, FL tell us officers have responded to their house ... and are talking to Michael and Kate right now.
Sources close to the couple tell us Michael is the one who called 911 when Kate started acting erratically ... and locked herself in the room.
We're told officers want one of them to leave the house immediately -- but Michael isn't budging because he thinks Kate is drunk ... and doesn't want to leave her with the baby.
We just spoke to Michael who claims Kate's been drinking again ... and it got so bad she tried to kill herself over the weekend. Lohan tells us he's worried about the welfare of their child and says he'll attempt to get custody of their son if she doesn't get help.
During Kate's twitter rant ... she addressed the suicide saying, "Someone trying to kill u is worse than trying to kill yourself ! #udontscareme."
Kate also vowed to never let Michael take their son away from her.
7:25 PM PT -- Police have left the house. No arrests were made ... so, should be a fun night at the Lohan corral.
