Lohan's father denies attack

Actress Lindsay Lohan’s father has pleaded not guilty to attacking his ex-girlfriend during an argument.

Michael Lohan entered the plea to domestic violence in Beverly Hills, California, today.

He was arrested in March after his ex-girlfriend, Kate Major, accused him of abusing her and preventing her from calling police.

Lohan’s lawyer said his client was looking forward to resolving the case and sorting out the conflicting stories of the events that led up to his arrest. A trial is scheduled for July 5.

Lohan has a fractious relationship with his movie star daughter and has a history of arrests in New York after his ex-girlfriends accused him of harassment.

If convicted, the 51-year-old could spend up to a year in jail.
