Tampa, Florida -- The father of actress Lindsay Lohan appeared in a Tampa courtroom Wednesday morning, facing domestic violence charges.

Michael Lohan was arrested Tuesday morning after police say he fought with his on-again, off-again girlfriend.

What led up to this incident? It depends on whom you ask. Both sides say an argument escalated from a disagreement involving sex, but the details differ.

For the graphic information told to investigators, see this previous story.

Lohan's girlfriend told investigators that he has been arrested multiple times on domestic violence charges involving her. There was apparently an injunction in place.

But, when Lohan came over to her condo Monday night, she let him in, saying she was afraid of him.

Michael Lohan was booked into the Hillsborough County Jail on Tuesday.

On Wednesday morning, an unhappy judge set Lohan's bond at $5,000 and ordered him held until at least 6 p.m.  He also reminded Lohan of the restraining order his girlfriend has against him.

"He has a restraining order out of Sarasota," said Judge Walter Heinrich. "So if he had an invitation, he shouldn't have come up here. He's not allowed to come up here. He's not allowed to be around her."

He then asked Lohan's attorney, "Does he know how to read?"

"Yes, your honor."

"Well, he better understand if he even dreams about her and violates my orders, he will go to jail."

Tampa police responded to two early morning 911 calls Tuesday.

Police say 51-year old Lohan grabbed his girlfriend, 28-year old Kathryn Major, and pushed her down multiple times during a daylong argument at her condo in tampa.

Lohan was arrested but then complained of chest pains so he was taken to St. Joseph's Hospital. Police say he checked himself out of the hospital and was taken to the Orient Road Jail.

Coincidentally, Major was in court Tuesday, not long after the incident at her condo.

It was a scheduled court appearance in Sarasota County. She was asking the judge to turn the temporary injunction into a permanent one. The judge instead granted her a new temporary injunction.

Why is this all happening in our area, while Michael's daughter Lindsay Lohan obviously lives in Southern California?

Lohan told police he moved to Tampa to get away from the publicity surrounding his celebrity daughter.
