Weho Daily reported earlier to our readers on Twitter about a domestic violence incident, and now it appears that the suspect in the incident is Michael Lohan, father of Lindsay Lohan.  TMZ says it involves his ex-girlfriend, Kate Major … and it appears there was a violent confrontation.

Lohan is a West Hollywood resident and TMZ is reporting that he was arrested by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. Our initial calls to the West Hollywood Sheriff’s Station resulted in “no comment” for the time being but our friends at TMZ have uncovered many of the details of what happened.

Apparently, Michael went to his apartment last night on Holloway, which he shared with Kate.  She hasn’t lived there for a while and came to pick up some of her stuff.

Michael became upset that Kate was packing up for good, says TMZ, and “went ballistic.”  They started arguing, and Kate turned her back on him.  She told cops, Michael then grabbed her and threw her across the room.  Kate says she struck the bedpost with her left shoulder.

Kate claims she threatened to call the cops, and then Michael allegedly took a towel and began choking her.  She also claims Michael then threatened to cut himself with a razor blade and tell cops she did it — if she called police.

Around 9PM, Kate arrived at the West Hollywood Sheriff’s station with “visible injuries” that were photographed. She said she had been choked and was thrown against a wall. Deputies determined the suspect was Lohan and began searching the area for him.

Weho Daily records show that deputies looking for Lohan were told that he may be cutting himself with a razor.

We believe that minutes after Kate arrived at the station, Lohan called and reported he was en route, along with his current location. Deputies intercepted him on Santa Monica Blvd near the MTA bus yards.

As we reported in our original reports on Twitter, fire and rescue personnel responded to the Sheriff’s station to attend to the victim. Our initial information indicates that Kate was not transported to the hospital. Once she had medical attention, deputies were considering having her make a field identification.  But since he was a named suspect, he sat in the back of a patrol car in back of the Sheriff’s station for awhile until they determined it was not necessary.

TMZ reports that Lohan was taken to the hospital to be checked for chest pains, and then he was to be booked at the Sheriff’s station.  He was booked for investigation of preventing a report of victimization, false imprisonment and infliction of corporal injury on a cohabitant, all felonies. Bail is set at $200,000.

He remained hospitalized this morning, according to TMZ.

Also, we can’t know for sure if this is related, but our friends over at @CelebSightings on Twitter reported that hours before the incident that Lohan was seen outside his apartment pacing and yelling at someone on the phone.  But it does seem clear that with everything that happened, Lohan had a really, really bad case of the Mondays this week.
