A news release says the 51-year-old was booked for investigation of preventing a report of victimization, false imprisonment and infliction of corporal injury on a cohabitant, all felonies. Bail is set at $200,000.
Authorities say the girlfriend refused treatment for minor injuries, but Michael Lohan was taken to a hospital after booking for a medical condition unrelated to the arrest.
He has a history of arrests in New York over allegations of harassment from ex-girlfriends.
The "Mean Girls" actress reportedly is estranged from her father.
