The drama continues for the Lohan family as Lindsay’s step-mom Kate Major Lohan was arrested Thursday evening in Florida after allegedly being intoxicated and attacking husband Michael Lohan.
According to the report, when police arrived Kate was visibly intoxicated and smelled of alcohol. The officer described her speech as slurred, her eyes blood shot and glossy, and her face red and flushed.
The officer says Kate admitted she’d been drinking, then ranted about nonsense. Kate then claimed Michael accused her of cheating and provoked her into a fight.
Kate also claimed Michael grabbed her by the throat. But according to the officer, she had no visible injuries. And get this … she then “scratched her throat area in an attempt to create red marks.”
Michael Lohan later spoke with Radar Online to do what he does best: shift blame. “At the end of the day, this is all because of what Dina is doing in court — Dina goes to the press and lies,” Michael told Radar. “It’s been stressing Kate out for a while: [like] any other alcoholic or addict, she doesn’t know how to deal with it other than by drinking.”
Michael also shared his account of what happened, which he says was all witnessed by the couple’s two young children. He says that Kate has fallen off the wagon and has been drinking for the past two months. He says that on Thursday she went to a restaurant and had a couple of glasses of wine before returning to their Boca Raton home.
From Radar Online:
Michael said he “grabbed” their baby son Logan “and ran outside” — at which point their 2-year-old son Landon followed him.
Sadly, Landon was witness to the violence Thursday, Michael said, noting that Major made an attempt in vain to put words in the toddler’s mouth.
“When the police were coming, she tried to tell my son Landon to say that I hit her, but he turned around and said, ‘No mommy, you hit daddy.’”
“All I did was try to protect my kids and run away from her — I never touched her.”
In summary, Michael said of Dina and Kate, “I really know how to pick them, don’t I?” He then added, “But I have to say, the best thing about them are my children.”
Kate Major Lohan has reportedly been released on her own recognizance.
