Lindsay Lohan's father Michael Lohan was arrested and charged with criminal contempt for violating an order of protection against him on Monday.
According to the Suffolk County Police Department on Long Island, Lohan, 49, was arrested in the police station on the misdemeanor charge. Police had no further comment on Tuesday and would not say which restraining order Lohan was in violation of.
In June, a judge said Michael Lohan would avoid prosecution on another misdemeanor charge of aggravated harassment if he stayed out of trouble for a year.
Lohan denied a claim by prosecutors that he threatened to kill his girlfriend, Erin Muller, and himself if she ended their relationship.
A representative for Lindsay Lohan and Michael's ex-wife Dina Lohan confirmed that Dina currently has an outstanding restraining order against Michael.
Michael Lohan did not immediately return a call for comment.
Lohan has reportedly been estranged from his famous daughter, who recently returned from filming a documentary on child trafficking in India.
