Ryan O'Neal's Son Griffin Arrested on Suspicion of Domestic Battery

Scott Kirkland/FilmMagic(SAN DIEGO) -- Ryan O'Neal's son Griffin O'Neal was in a San Diego jail Thursday following his arrest on New Year's Eve for alleged misdemeanor domestic battery. According to UTSanDiego.com, a family member called 911 on Dec. 31 to report a disturbance stemming from a person having had too much to drink at O'Neal's Ramona, Calif. home. After speaking with witnesses, deputies determined that the 47-year-old O'Neal was being aggressive towards his wife. As of Thursday night, he was being held at San Diego Central Jail on $10,000 bail.

O'Neal is scheduled to be sentenced next week in connection with an unrelated case in which he drove under the influence of drugs last year, resulting in an accident that injured another driver.

Another of Ryan O'Neal's sons, Redmond O'Neal, has also had his share of legal problems due to a drug addiction.

Michael Lohan Pleads No Contest to Domestic Violence Charges

Frazer Harrison/Getty Images(TAMPA, Fla.) -- Lindsay Lohan's father pleaded no contest in Tampa, Fla., Wednesday to domestic violence charges in connection with an alleged dispute he had last month with his on-again, off-again partner.

Under his plea deal, Michael Lohan must serve two years' probation, including a stint at a Fort Myers residential program, according to The Tampa Tribune.  If he completes the residential program, he will take part in a domestic batterer's intervention program.

The 51-year-old Lohan was arrested on Oct. 25 and charged with domestic battery in connection with an alleged confrontation he had with 29-year-old Kate Major.  He was arrested a second time later that week for allegedly contacting her in violation of the terms of his release.

A Tampa judge on Wednesday ordered him to have no contact with Major.  At one point, the judge chastised Lohan for making faces at Major during his court appearance.

Major claimed Wednesday that Lohan secretly recorded a sex tape of the two and threatened to release it if she failed to drop the allegations against him. She said she is now in possession of the tape.

Injunction Reached Between Lindsay Lohan's Father and His Partner

Frazer Harrison/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Lindsay Lohan's father is under orders to stay away from his on-again, off-again partner, with whom he was involved in an alleged domestic dispute last month.

Tampa Bay's TBO.com reports Michael Lohan and Kate Major have agreed to a permanent injunction that calls for him to stay at least 500 feet away from her.  It also forbids him from making contact with her.

The injunction was reached during a court hearing Tuesday in Sarasota, Florida.

The 51-year-old Lohan was arrested on Oct. 25 and charged with domestic battery in connection with an alleged confrontation he had with the 28-year-old Major.  He was arrested a second time later that week for allegedly contacting her in violation of the terms of his release.  He has an arraignment scheduled for Wednesday.

Major has her own legal headache: she reportedly was arrested Monday at a Los Angeles airport after police say she was denied boarding on a Delta flight because she was intoxicated.  Police say she subsequently committed battery on an airline staff member.
