Michael Lohan pleaded not guilty Monday to attacking his ex-girlfriend during an argument two months ago in California.
The father of “Mean Girls” star Lindsay Lohan entered the plea to misdemeanor domestic violence battery in Beverly Hills.
Police arrested Lohan in March after his ex-girlfriend, Kate Major, accused him of abusing her and preventing her from calling 911.
Michael Lohan’s attorney said his client is 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.
The Lohan family patriarch has a fractious relationship with his 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.
