Miami (CNN) -- Actress Lindsay Lohan's father was arrested on suspicion of domestic violence, police in Tampa, Florida, said Tuesday.

Monday evening, police responded to a domestic violence call at Michael Lohan's home, authorities said in a statement. "Upon arrival, Mr. Lohan was arrested for battery on his live-in girlfriend," the statement said.

When taken into custody, Lohan complained of chest pains and was taken to a hospital to be checked, police said. "A short time later, Mr. Lohan checked himself out and was placed under arrest."

Police said more details would be provided later Tuesday.

Lohan, 51, was also arrested in Los Angeles in connection with alleged domestic violence in March and was charged with one misdemeanor count of corporal injury to a cohabitant.

The relationship between Lohan and his daughter has been publicly strained for years, although the two did undergo family counseling together during her treatment at the Betty Ford Center.
