He was originally arrested for three felonies, including false imprisonment, but the Los Angeles County District Attorney's office opted not to pursue those charges.

Lohan was released from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center Tuesday afternoon for unrelated problems. He is due back in court for his arraignment on May 23. His daughter, Lindsay Lohan, is also due back in court soon after she was accused of stealing a $2,500 necklace in January and also for violating her probation.

Lohan recently joined the cast of VH1's Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew.
