The actress's father, 50, has been formally charged with one count of misdemeanor domestic violence, stemming from his arrest Monday, after a female accused him of hitting her in a nearby apartment. The victim was reportedly his ex-girlfriend Kate Major.
Michael Lohan was initially arrested for three felonies, including false imprisonment, but the Los Angeles District Attorney's office declined to pursue those charges.
Lohan – who was released Tuesday afternoon from L.A.'s Cedars-Sinai Medical Center for problems not related to the incident – is scheduled to appear at Beverly Hills Court for his arraignment on May 23.
