Michael Lohan
The showbiz patriarch – the dad of troubled actress Lindsay Lohan was taken into custody by police in Tampa, Florida in the early hours of this morning after officers responded to reports of a fight in an apartment.

Before being booked into Hillsborough County Jail, Michael was taken to St. Joseph's hospital after complaining of chest pains when he was arrested.

Bail has not yet been set.

Police have not yet identified the victim, but local reports say she has also dated reality TV star Jon Gosselin.

Journalist Kate Major previously dated the 'Jon and Kate Plus 8' star and was romantically involved with Michael, though they ended their relationship several months ago.

In March, 51-year-old Michael was arrested for allegedly assaulting Kate, with police reporting he had attempted to choke her and injured himself to prevent her calling for help.

Last July, Kate accused Michael of attacking her at their home in Southampton, New York, claiming he threw her off a chair and kicked her in the face during an argument.
