Michael Lohan, Lindsay’s dad, was back in custody today after reportedly trying to elude police by jumping from his balcony into a tree, E! Online reports.
The escapade played out at his Tampa, Fla., apartment just a day after Lohan appeared before an angry judge on charges of domestic violence following a confrontation with his on-again, off-again girlfriend Kate Major, the story reports.
Lohan was warned Wednesday by Judge Walter Heinrich not to have any contact with Major, as previously reported. Before releasing Lohan, Heinrich told him: “If you even dream about her and you violate my order, you will go to jail."
But Lohan apparently didn’t buy into the warning. E! Online reports: “According to Tampa police, shortly after leaving lockup, Lohan began phoning up Major. Major alerted cops and put Lohan on speakerphone for their listening (dis)pleasure. Because that was a blatant violation of his restraining order, the cops headed over to his apartment at the Tahitian Inn.”
Lohan then allegedly tried to avoid the cops by jumping into a tree. He subsequently complained about a possible broken foot, according to the report. The authorities took him to a hospital and arrested him on charges of violating the restraining order, resisting arrest and contempt of court, the story reports.
The story adds: “Earlier, Lohan told reporters that Major, a tabloid reporter, makes her living in part by getting him in trouble. He was also arrested in March for allegedly holding Major against her will. Those charges were eventually dismissed as the pair reconciled — to fight another day.”
