(Newser) – Michael Lohan couldn’t even go a full day as a free man: Just hours after he was released from a Tampa jail, he was arrested again. Lohan had been jailed on domestic violence charges related to his girlfriend (yes, the AP still refers to her as his girlfriend) Kate Major. Early this morning, Major called 911 to report a harassing phone call from Lohan; he called again after police arrived at her home, and she put him on speaker phone.

The calls violated Lohan’s pre-trial release order (Radar notes that the judge had told him, “You even dream of [Major] and you're going to jail.”), so cops went to his hotel—where, they say, he jumped off a third-floor balcony in an attempt to evade them. Best detail: TMZ reports he landed in a tree. He made a pit stop at a hospital with a possible broken foot before heading back to jail. Not surprisingly, Lohan makes The Frisky’s list of the seven worst celebrity dads of all time—click to see who else joins him.
