The father of actress Lindsay Lohan has been arrested in Florida on domestic violence charges against his on-and-off girlfriend.

Police said one cause of the fight between 51-year-old Michael Lohan and 28-year-old Kathryn Major was her apparent refusal to perform a sex act on him.

Another was a scheduled court date on a previous domestic violence case against her.

After being placed in custody, Lohan complained of chest pains and was taken to hospital. He apparently tried to check himself out and leave unnoticed when he thought the officers had departed, but they quickly arrested him.

Lohan was being held at Tampa's Hillsborough County Orient Road Jail without bail.

Police arrived at Major's condominium to respond to a domestic violence call. They could hear a woman yelling "stop" and "leave me alone."

In addition to the injuries to Ms Major, which did not require medical treatment, police said jewellery and clothing from her wardrobe was strewn around and a bathroom door had a dent at about the height of Lohan's head. Ms Major told them Lohan had banged his own head on the door and that he intended to blame her for injuring him if police came.

Police said Lohan went to Ms Major's home on Sunday and that she decided to let him stay even though she had a temporary domestic violence injunction against him from the previous case.

Meanwhile, Lindsay Lohan could also return to jail in California after a judge last week ruled she violated probation involving a community service assignment. A November 2 court date was set to decide whether she should be jailed.

The 25-year-old was given probation for a 2007 drunken driving case and a theft case this year.
