Lindsay Lohan’s father Michael says his alienated wife’s assertions that he attacked her are all a lie and insists that he never touched her.
“I didn’t touch her, I was not near her, this is just a lie,” Michael Lohan told DailyMail.com just after he was released from detention in Southampton, New York on Tuesday.
Lohan, 59, was arrested Monday after Kate Major claimed to have stifled her in her Long Island home when she confronted him with his browsing history on the Internet.
But according to Lohan, Major only filed the police report against him because he called the police on her Sunday, which led to her arrest for DWI.
He says he drove to Southampton on Sunday and passed Major on the road, they saw each other, and then he drove into a gas station next to her.
“I stopped beside her and she was absolutely drunk from her thoughts,” he said. “There was a bottle of vodka next to her.
“I said it was. So I called and called the police. The police tracked her down and arrested her Sunday. ”
He claims that Major had a blood alcohol level of 0.24, more than double the legal limit.

Lohan says Major was released at 1 AM and agreed to rehabilitate and met with lawyers on Monday to fight the charges.
He says that he was blind that day when the police came to arrest him while he was shopping with his two young sons that he shares with Major.
The couple, who have two sons together, made the knot in 2014 and divorced a year later
“I wasn’t even with her. All this as a retribution when I arrested her for DWI. That’s all it is, “he claims.
Lohan says the police told him during his arrest: “Mr. Lohan, all that’s needed is an accusation and she had a bruise on her neck. “
The assistant sheriff who wrote Major’s police report said there were visible bruises on the right side of Major’s neck and her voice was hoarse.
But Lohan claims: ‘She grabbed her own neck! I didn’t touch her! “
He is accused of criminal obstruction of breathing or blood circulation and second-degree intimidation and was released on Tuesday, but has to wear a surveillance device.
Lohan was handcuffed when he was brought to court by two officers on Tuesday.
Sources tell DailyMail.com that during his detention, Michael claimed that he had a heart attack and was taken to the hospital for an evaluation after the arrest.
Kate has a protection order against Michael, but both are allowed in their house.
Sources tell DailyMail.com that the judge has allowed it because Michael has the primary custody of their two sons Landon (7) and Logan (5) outside the Florida court.
Sources say that Kate feels that the punishment for her estranged husband is a “joke.”
In a statement to DailyMail.com, Michael’s ex-wife Dina blamed Kate and called her an “unstable person.”
“I think it is very necessary for me to say that Michael has been a very good father to two precious young boys and he has tried to protect them from this very clearly unstable person, Kate.
“He was banned for a reason. She is an unsuitable mother. He works in well-being and health and I pray that the judiciary recognizes that the person responsible for this is actually Kate. Michael not. ”

Major, who filed for divorce in 2015 after a year of marriage, claims that he became violent with her after confronting him with his browsing history on the internet, apparently showing that he was looking for escort services in Houston while on a trip there.
In a handwritten statement in the police report, Major describes how Lohan reportedly threw plastic clothes hangers at her before she grabbed her throat and left her with visible bruises.
She claimed that Lohan threatened to stab her and scolded her as she tried to get away from her and called her a “braindead who * e.”
An assistant sheriff wrote in the report that Major was looking for her pet hamster when Lohan started throwing hangers at her.
He then grabbed her hand and squeezed it so hard that the “hamster ball” she was holding shattered.
The fight escalated when Lohan threw Major’s cell phone on the floor and grabbed her by the neck, the report says.
When Major tried to free himself from his grasp, Lohan shouted at her insultingly and called her a “waste of life” and a “who’s”.
Lohan would also have told Major that he “could stab her and get away from her.”
Major left the house and immediately went to see her lawyer, who accompanied her to the Southampton Village police station.

DailyMail.com obtained the Major police report where she claimed that Lohan “became extremely violent and threatened to stab me”
Major’s handwritten statement in the report reads: “Michael followed my car and called the police on me. Today he became extremely violent and threatened to stab me. He called me a who and threw hangers around the room.
“He threw my phone. Put his hand around the left side of my neck with his hand. My neck hurts and is bruised by anger in my throat. He also grabbed my right wrist and the hamster wheel burst. My right wrist is bruised and painful.
“He said he just wanted to stab me and end everything. He kept saying that I was brain dead – I leave too many lights on and I am a waste of life. He threatened to call the police and put me away for 20 years.
“This has been a constant, abusive, controlling hell of your life. Today he really scared me and I was afraid to call 911 and my hand is painful and hard to write.
“When he choked me, my throat is now hoarse and I have pain. When I searched for the hamster, he kicked me on the right side of my ass while I leaned forward. “
Lohan and Major took the knot in 2014 and split up a year later. They have two sons together – the seven-year-old Landon and the five-year-old Logan.
This is not the first time that Lohan has been accused of domestic violence against Major.
Two previous incidents were noted in the police report, including one in 2011 in which he was arrested after allegedly “trying to throw Major off a balcony.”
The report states that the first incident occurred in 2009 when Lohan pushed Major during a fight.
