Lindsay Lohan's father, Michael Lohan, was arrested Monday night on charges of criminal contempt for allegedly violating an order of protection taken out against him by his wife, Long Island police say.

The elder Lohan, 44, never made it to jail, however: Following his court appearance for the bust, he complained of shortness of breath and chest pains and was taken to Winthrop-University Hospital for evaluation, the New York Post and Daily News report. There has been no statement from the hospital regarding his condition.

It was the second time in three months that Lohan showed signs of heart trouble while in custody. In August, he was rushed out of Nassau County Court, where he was the defendant in an assault case, and treated for high blood pressure at a nearby hospital.

More on Lindsay

According to the Daily News, Monday's arrest revolved around an incident two weeks ago in which he allegedly chased daughter Lindsay, 18, when she showed up at her younger brother Dakota's soccer game in Merrick, L.I. The sporting event was also attended by his wife (and the children's mother), Dina – who had secured an order of protection against Michael last month.

Dina's brother, Paul Sullivan, tells the Daily News that Michael has threatened to murder his entire family, which now has 24-hour security protection.

Last summer, Michael was arrested in the family home for allegedly beating another brother-in-law, Matthew Sullivan, with a shoe during a brawl at a Communion party.
