Michael Lohan, father to troubled star Lindsey Lohan, and his two youngest children’s mother, Kate Major, have had major ups and downs since first hooking up. As a known drug user, Kate has been in and out of rehab and recently completed an eight-month sting in jail for messing up yet again.
A little more than eight months ago, Kate was taken into custody after pleading guilty to a DUI, which resulted in a probation violation from a 2012 battery case involving a police officer in Florida. At that time, her probation was violated by a judge and she was ordered to jail.
While family and friends hoped this last event would be the last of many, unfortunately they were wrong. Kate suffered another alcohol relapse, leading to an attack on her husband Lohan.
Around 7:00 pm last night, police officers were dispatched to Lohan’s home in Boca Raton. In addition to being obviously drunk, Lohan told officers that after coming home Kate struck him. Initially, the altercation was only verbal but shortly, things turned physical. As proof, cops photographed a large scratch on Lohan’s back.
As stated in the police report, Kate smelled of alcohol, had slurred speech, bloodshot eyes, and her face was flushed. She admitted to drinking but then began to rant out nonsensical things. At that point, Kate claimed that Lohan provoked her by accusing her of cheating. She went on to say that Lohan grabbed her around the throat.
Without seeing any physical evidence to back up her claims, the officer reported that Kate began to scratch at her throat in an effort to create marks that she could blame on Lohan. Immediately following the incident, she was taken to the Palm Beach County Jail and booked on battery. After going before a judge, she was released this morning on her own recognizance.
In an interesting turn, Lohan blames his ex-wife Dina, the mother of his older children to include Lindsay, for the problem. The two are in a huge child custody dispute. Lohan told reporters that all of this is the result of Dina’s antics in court because not only does it affect him and the children but Kate’s as well. Because his current wife has a drug and alcohol problem she is unable to handle serious stress.
