Lindsay Lohan asked her father to call police following a row with her mother.
Officers responded to a 911 call in which the caller claimed the actress was being held against her will at Dina Lohan's house in Long Island, New York, in the early hours of Wednesday morning (10.10.12) and now Michael Lohan has revealed he contacted emergency services at the request of his daughter.
He told website Hollyscoop: ''I called the police at Lindsay's request.
''[Lindsay] even asked that I record the conversation because she was being held against her will by the limo driver at Dina's instruction.''
It has been claimed the row started after Lindsay and Dina left a nightclub at 4am, with insiders claiming to website TMZ that the showbiz matriarch was ''wasted''.
They rowed when Dina wanted to take a limo to her home in Long Island to avoid paying for a taxi, and she won out over the objections of her daughter, whose leg was cut in the fracas.
Police made a Domestic Incident Report but no arrests were made.
However, Michael - who has four children with ex-wife Dina - insists the police report doesn't tell the whole story, claiming his former spouse is ''endangering'' their elder children and taking money from them.
He added:''Dina is endangering Lindsay, Ali and Cody and it has to stop. [Dina is] using the kids as pawns and lying to get money from both of us. She just took another $40,000 from Lindsay.
''Dina and her lies must stop. I will not have this done to my kids or be lied to any more.''
