HUNTINGTON, N.Y. – Teen movie star Lindsay Lohan's (search) father has been arrested on a charge of theft of services after allegedly skipping out on a $3,800 bill for several suites at a posh Long Island hotel and catering facility.
Michael Lohan (search), 42, was arrested Tuesday at Nassau County Court in Mineola, where he was to appear for a conference on unrelated charges, said Suffolk County Police Lt. Kenneth Fasano.
Lohan, whose daughter stars in the film "Mean Girls," (search) booked suites April 12 and 13 to entertain guests at Oheka Castle at $700 each per night. Police say the hotel's management made several attempts to collect payment for the rooms without success.
His attorney, Marvin Hirsch, decried the arrest and said Lohan arranged to pay the bill with a credit card, but for unexplained reasons, the charge was not processed. Lohan was released on $250 bail.
Lohan was arrested shortly before he was to appear before a Nassau County judge to face charges that he struck his brother-in-law at a first communion party at the family's Merrick home on May 23.
He also faces prosecution in Manhattan, where he was arraigned this month on assault and other charges for allegedly swearing at a sanitation worker whose truck was blocking his car, then punching him in the face.
