(updated 10/29/2011) On October 25, 2011, Lindsay Lohan’s father, Michael Lohan (51), was arrested in a suspected domestic violence incident in Tampa, FL, involving his on-again, off-again girlfriend, Kate Major. Lohan was released from custody on $5,000 bail and ordered by the judge to have no further contact with Major. But the next day on October 27, 2011 – only 12 hours after being warned by the judge – Lohan was back in police custody, after contacting Major again by phone. Unbeknownst to Lohan, when he called Major a second time that evening, police were listening in on speaker phone.
When police went to Lohan’s hotel, the Tahitian Inn, to arrest him, Lohan tried to evade the authorities by jumping from a third-story, 30-foot high balcony.
Upon jumping, Lohan fell into a tree and injured his foot. After a brief chase, Lohan was taken into custody and was being held to appear before a judge for violating the restraining order placed on him the day before. Lohan was taken to jail, and then to the hospital for a possible broken foot.
According to a police statement released by CNN:
“Upon seeing officers, he jumped out of a third-story balcony in an attempt to escape arrest,”
