Teenage movie star Lindsay Lohan's father has promised to undergo a course
of anger management in a bid to win his wife and kids back.
Michael Lohan was arrested last week (ends11JUN04) after fighting with his
brother-in-law at a family party.
Lohan put his daughter's uncle, MATT SULLIVAN, in hospital with a gash to
his head, and although he insists he didn't start the fight, he's taking steps
to calm his temper.
Speaking exclusively to American news show ACCESS HOLLYWOOD, Lohan says
he's taking temper classes after having a tearful chat with daughter Lindsay at
the weekend (12-13JUN04).
He reveals, "She said, 'Daddy, I want my family back. Let's put this back
together.' She was crying her eyes out."
He continues, "I'm 44-years-old and I should know better. I studied
martial arts for eight years. I know the passive attitude and I didn't use it
but I am addressing that - I'm going into anger management."
Lohan maintains he didn't mean to put his brother-in-law in hospital, but
a ring he was wearing cut into his scalp.
He adds, "He came at me and he swung with the right, swung with the left,
he missed me...and I punched him in the head. Unfortunately, I had a ring on
and that ring cut his head."
