Lohan's Dad Ordered to Anger Management
Michael Lohan, father of Mean Girls star Lindsay Lohan, pleaded guilty to third-degree assault charges and was ordered by a New York judge Thursday to attend anger-management classes.
Lohan, 43, of Long Island, was accused of beating up city sanitation worker Oluwole Olugovir last Dec. 8 during an altercation between the two men on a Manhattan street. The cause of the confrontation, reports New York's Daily News, was Olugovir's truck blocking Lohan's automobile on the Upper West Side.
According to the criminal complaint filed in Manhattan Criminal Court, Lohan struck the sanitation worker "several times about the face with closed fists." In his guilty plea, Lohan, who also faces separate charges of assaulting his brother-in-law with a shoe at a family gathering in May, admitted that he "recklessly caused injury to another person."
Judge Richard Weinberg told Lohan that if he completed the anger-management classes successfully, the conviction would be removed from his record. Lohan is due to return to court Dec. 9.
In leaving the courthouse Thursday, Lohan told reporters: "I just want stability for my family. That's what God wants and everybody wants."
