Tampa - The estranged father of actress Lindsay Lohan made his first appearance in court on domestic violence charges.

Michael Lohan walked out of the jail on Wednesday. Bail had been set at $5 000.

The 51-year-old Lohan told reporters he "didn't do anything" and this was his girlfriend's way of making money.

Lohan is accused of grabbing his on-and-off girlfriend and pushing her down multiple times during an argument at her Tampa condo on Sunday. The judge told Lohan to stay away from 28-year-old Kate Major.

Authorities say Lohan went to Major's condo and that she decided to let him stay even though she had a temporary domestic violence injunction against him in Sarasota County.
