Tampa police said officers responded to a 911 call from Michael Lohan's on-and-off girlfriend, Kate Major, early Thursday. Major told police Lohan, 51, made a harassing phone call to her shortly after being released from jail Wednesday afternoon.

Lohan called again while police were at Major's condo. Major, 28, put the call on speaker so police could listen. After hearing what Lohan said, the police department notififed the Hillsborough County State Attorney's Office of a violation of Judge Walter Heinrich's pre-trial release order that he stay away from Major. An arrest order was authorized.

Police went to the Tahitian Inn in Tampa, where Lohan was reportdly staying. According to a news release from police, Lohan spotted the officers and jumped off a third-floor balcony in an attempt to escape.

Lohan was arrested after a short pursuit on foot. He was taken into police custody and taken to the Hillsborough County Jail. There, deputies said,  they suspected he may have broken his foot when he jumped off the balcony, so he was taken to Tampa General Hospital for evaluation.

Authorities said he will be returned to the jail once he's been cleared by doctors.

Lohan was arrested Tuesday on domestic violence charges involving Major, a former reporter for the Star tabloid. When Lohan was released from jail Wednesday, he said he "didn't do anything" and the charges were Major's way of making money.

The St. Petersburg Times reported that Lohan claimed Major set him up to be overheard by police Thursday. "She needs help, she calls me, and I'm a sucker so I call her back. I'm an idiot," Lohan said as he was being put into the back of a police cruiser.

But in the police report, officers noted Major's phone number did not appear among recent calls on Lohan's phone.

Earlier this year, Lohan appeared on VH1's "Celebrity Rehab With Dr. Drew."

He is not the first reality show celebrity that Major has dated. In 2009, she also dated Jon Gosselin from the TLC reality show "Jon & Kate Plus 8."

According to a People Magazine story from that year, Major and Gosselin even stayed at Lohan's house.

In July, a misdemeanor domestic violence charge against Lohan stemming from a fight with Major was dismissed in Los Angeles after she failed to show up for the trial. Lohan's attorney said Major declined to cooperate to avoid a court spectacle.

Lohan has a history of arrests in New York over allegations of harassment from ex-girlfriends.
