Egads. Michael Lohan is in the news again and it isn’t for something cute like announcing he’s engaged to Jon Gosselin’s ex. Nope, Michael has been charged with three counts of domestic violence—inflicting corporal injury on a cohabitant, false imprisonment and preventing a report of victimization. “Mr. Lohan was arrested after we received a call around 9 p.m. regarding a domestic dispute,” an officer explained. “He was detained after he was spotted walking on the street near our station. He showed no signs of intoxication that I’m aware of and has been cooperative.” His bail has been set at $200,000. [People]
