Michael, 59, was taken into custody by Southampton Village Police at 4:40 p.m. two miles from his home, where the incident allegedly took place.
“Lohan is charged with misdemeanor criminal obstruction of breathing or blood circulation (choking) and second degree harassment, which is a violation,” Detective Herman Lamison told Radar.
