The father of actress Lindsay Lohan is facing a harassment charge in New York after his fiancée claims he kicked and threatened to kill her.
Michael Lohan is due in a Southampton court on August 18.
His fiancée, 27-year-old Kathryn Major, told police that she and the 50-year-old Lohan argued on Monday over a missed mobile phone call at their Water Mill home on Long Island. Ms Major claims Lohan kicked and threatened her.
Lohan’s lawyer, Lisa Bloom, said her client denies all the charges.
Some media reports said the couple, who got engaged in April, had split up. Ms Bloom did not immediately comment on the reports.
Lohan was in Los Angeles this week to watch his daughter surrender to begin a 90-day jail term for violating terms of her probation.
