Lindsay Lohan's father has been charged with a misdemeanor in connection with an alleged attack on his ex-girlfriend.

The Los Angeles County district attorney charged Michael Lohan on Wednesday.

The 50-year-old is accused of physically assaulting his live-in girlfriend Kate Major on Monday after the two got into an argument in their West Hollywood home.

If convicted, Michael Lohan faces up to one year in county jail.

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

The "Mean Girls" star and her father are reportedly estranged.
