TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - The estranged father of actress Lindsay Lohan is back in police custody hours after being released from a Tampa jail on domestic violence charges.
Tampa police responded to a 911 call from Michael Lohan's on-and-off girlfriend early Thursday. Kate Major told police Lohan made a harassing phone call to her shortly after being released from jail Wednesday.
Lohan called again while police were at Major's condo. Lohan allegedly insisted he had not threatened Major. He said he threw a remote control at the floor, not at her.
Police got an arrest warrant and went to the hotel where Lohan was staying.
According to their report, Lohan spotted them and tried to hide. Police said he jumped off a 34-foot high balcony in an escape attempt. Officers apprehended him minutes later.
