Teen actress Lindsay Lohan’s father, Michael, pleaded guilty to assault charges Thursday and was ordered by a New York judge to attend anger-management classes.
Lohan was accused of beating up a city sanitation worker in December during an altercation between the two men on a Manhattan street.
According to the criminal complaint filed in Manhattan Criminal Court, Lohan struck the sanitation worker “several times about the face with closed fists.”
In pleading guilty, Lohan admitted that he “recklessly caused injury to another person.”
Manhattan Criminal Court Judge Richard Weinberg told Lohan that if he completed the anger-management classes successfully, the conviction would be removed from his record when he returns to court on Dec. 9.
He also has been charged with assault in a separate case stemming from a fight with Lindsay’s uncle, Matt Sullivan, on Long Island in May.
“I just want stability for my family. That’s what God wants and everybody wants,” Lohan told reporters on his way out of the courthouse on Tuesday.
His daughter, Lindsay, 18, appeared in a pair of teen-oriented big-screen comedies earlier this year, “Mean Girls” and “Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen” after winning acclaim for her role in a 1998 remake of “The Parent Trap.”
