TAMPA (CBSMiami/AP) – Less than 24 hours after being released from a Tampa jail on domestic abuse charges, actress Lindsay Lohan’s dad was back in the slammer.
Michael Lohan was originally arrested Tuesday on domestic violence charges involving on-and-off girlfriend Katie Major, a former reporter for the Star tabloid. Police say he grabbed her arms and pushed her down multiple times during a daylong argument.READ MORE: ‘I Have Goose Bumps’: Zoo Miami's Ron Magil On 'Rita' Laying 2nd Egg On Live Bald Eagle Cam
Lohan was released from jail Wednesday. A short time later, police received a call from Major who said Lohan, 51, had made a harassing phone call to her. Lohan called again while police were at Major’s condo. Major, 28, put the call on speaker so police could listen.
After hearing what Lohan said, the police notified the Hillsborough County State Attorney’s Office that Lohan had violated a pre-trial release order which stated that he had to stay away from Major. The State Attorney’s Office then issued a warrant for his arrest.
Officers went to the Tahitian Inn in Tampa, where Lohan was reportedly staying. According to the police, Lohan spotted the officers, tried to hide and then ran from them, eventually jumping off a third-floor balcony in an attempt to escape.
Lohan “apparently leaped up from his balcony and grabbed a hold of the roof. He then must have scurried across the roof (about 30 feet) until he thought he was hanging over top of the next balcony,” according to a report by Officer J. Ladd, one of two police who initially responded to the call.READ MORE: Boca Raton Man Faces Charges In Fatal Crash That Killed Homestead Mom, Daughter On Thanksgiving Eve
Lohan let go, missed the balcony and “Came crashing down on top of wooden high chairs that were laying on the ground,” according to the police report.
Lohan was arrested after a short pursuit on foot and was taken to the Hillsborough County Jail.
Deputies suspected he may have broken his foot when he jumped off the balcony, so he was then taken to Tampa General Hospital for evaluation.
He will be returned to the jail once he’s been cleared by doctors.MORE NEWS: Kyle Lowry Scores 19 Points, Heat Beat Bulls 107-104
