Michael Lohan was charged Wednesday with aggravated harassment for a March 18 incident where authorities say he threatened to kill fiancée Erin Muller, 34, and himself, if she left him. In a police report, filed the same day, Muller claims Lohan made the threat over the phone.
According to the Suffolk County District Attorney, Lohan surrendered April 6th responding to the complaint in district court.
Lohan, who spoke exclusively to PIX News, is denying the allegations.
"I never threatened to hurt Erin or myself in any way whatsoever," he told PIX News in a statement over the phone Thursday. Lohan also says he has the evidence that will prove his innocence.
"I have every call I made, and received on tape and if the truth needs to come out it will," he said. "From the very beginning Erin never wanted to press charges and she still doesn't. I trust the authorities will straighten this out."
Lohan's criminal record has been widely publicized since his daughter's rise to fame. He was released from prison in 2007 after serving almost two years for attempted assault and driving while intoxicated.
Lohan, who resides in Medford, is due back in court on June 10.
