Michael Lohan, 49, was arrested for allegedly violating a protection order that prohibits him from calling his estranged girlfriend. Lohan is accused of calling his ex, Erin Muller, Sunday, Dec. 13, at approximately 11:30 am.

Lohan's attorney told The Associated Press his client is the victim of fabricated claims and that it was Muller that called him. Lohan was charged with aggravated harassment earlier this year after reportedly threatening to kill himself and Muller when she tried to break up with him, a charge he later denied in court, according to the AP.

Lohan is due in court next on Jan. 8. He did not return calls for comment.
