Michael Lohan, father of actress Lindsay Lohan, was arrested Monday for allegedly assaulting his estranged wife in her Southampton home, Southampton Village Police said.
Lohan, 59, was charged with misdemeanor criminal obstruction of breathing or blood circulation and second-degree harassment, a violation.
“Mr. Lohan is accused of becoming verbally and physically abusive,” police said in a statement. “While in custody, Mr. Lohan complained of chest pains and was transported to Stony Brook Southampton Hospital.”
He was arraigned Tuesday at Southampton Village Justice Court.
“He got extremely violent and threatened to stab me,” Kate Major said a police report, according to the Daily Mail, which first reported the story. “Put his hand around the left side of my neck with his hand. My neck hurts and is bruised.”
Lohan and Major were married in 2014, separated a year later, and have two children. Lohan has custody of the kids.
His arrest comes a month after Lindsay Lohan’s mother, Dina Lohan, pleaded not guilty to felony driving while intoxicated following an alleged hit-and-run crash in Merrick.
