Lindsay Lohan’s father, Michael Lohan has been arrested for patient brokering in Florida.
The father to the actress was allegedly involved in a scheme where he brought drug addicts to treatment centers in exchange for money.
Nbc news reports that Michael was booked on Friday.
“There were reportedly more than 100 people arrested for being a part of the operation, which took place in Palm Beach County. Charging documents show that he is facing five counts of patient brokering and one count of attempted patient brokering.
Speaking on the arrest, State Attorney Dave Aronberg said,
“Mr. Lohan was investigated by our Sober Homes Task Force and he’s being charged with receiving kickbacks for referring patients to drug treatment. Patient brokering corrupts our health care system because decisions are motivated by greed instead of a patient’s needs.’
