A few words of advice for Michael Lohan: When you've just been released from jail after your ex had you arrested for alleged domestic abuse, it's probably best not to harrass her with threatening phone calls.
Yet that's exactly what the 51-year-old father of Lindsay Lohan did, just hours after being released from a Tampa, Fla., jail for physically assaulting his on-and-off girlfriend Kathryn Major during an argument at her condo early Tuesday morning. Not surprisingly, Lohan was once again taken into police custody for violating pre-trial release orders to stay away from his former lady love.
According to Tampa police, Lohan called Major, 28, Wednesday afternoon to send her some ill-wishes. But police were at Major's apartment at the time -- Major had called them to report a previous threatening call from Lohan -- and Kathryn put the call on speakerphone so they could listen. Since the call was in violation of Judge Walter Heinrich's orders, an arrest warrant was authorized and police went to take Lohan into custody at his Tahitian Inn hotel room.
But Lohan wasn't too keen to be arrested for the second time in one week. According to a news release from the police, Lohan jumped off a third-story balcony in an attempt to evade the cops but was captured after a short pursuit on foot. He was taken to Hillsborough County Jail but then brought to Tampa General Hospital because authorities believed he had broken his foot in his fall.
Lohan claims a different story though. The St. Petersburg Times reported that Lohan thinks Major set him up to be caught. "She needs help, she calls me, and I'm a sucker so I call her back," he reportedly said as he was being put into the back of a police cruiser. "I'm an idiot." (Hey, no argument here.)
Either way, Lohan is being sent back to jail. Authorities said he'll be back behind bars once doctors clear him to leave the hospital.
