Lindsay Lohan's Dad Slapped with Felony Charges

Mar 31, 2005 | 6:36am EST

Lindsay Lohan's troubled father Michael has been slapped with felony charges for allegedly driving drunk into a New York telephone pole last month.

If convicted, he could face a maximum of four years in prison, according to Nassau Assistant District Attorney Joy Watson.

The new charge threatens to nullify a previous plea bargain regarding an assault in May of last year on his brother-in-law and possibly add another four years to his sentence, reports New York's Daily News.

Following his arrest on Feb. 19, the 44-year-old was originally hit with a misdemeanor charge of driving under the influence, which has now been upgraded to felony charges for aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle.

The charge was made more severe in part because he allegedly drove with a suspended license.
