Michael Lohan denied bail after second arrest

The estranged father of actress Lindsay Lohan has been denied bail in Florida.

Hillsborough County jail records show Michael Lohan was being held Saturday without bond on four charges.

He was arrested on domestic violence charges Tuesday. His bail was set at $5,000 and a judge warned him not to make any contact with his on-and-off girlfriend, Kate Major. Two days later, he was accused of violating the terms of his release by making a harassing phone call to her.

Police went to arrest him and he tried to avoid them by jumping off a third-floor balcony at a Tampa hotel. He was injured and had to be taken to the hospital.

He was released from the hospital Friday and put back in jail.

In July, a misdemeanor domestic violence charge against Lohan stemming from a fight with Major was dismissed in Los Angeles after she failed to show up for the trial. Lohan's attorney said Major declined to cooperate to avoid a court spectacle.

Lohan has a history of arrests in New York over allegations of harassment from ex-girlfriends.

Lohan appeared on season 5 of "Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew." He told police this week that he moved to Tampa to get away from the publicity surrounding his celebrity daughter Lindsay — who has had numerous run-ins with the law herself in Los Angeles and is currently performing court-ordered community service in the L.A. County morgue for a probation violation.

She also reportedly posed for Playboy this week.
