Lohan's crime: once again calling his ex-girlfriend, Erin Muller, who has a restraining order against him which forbids phone communication. TMZ reports that in April, Lohan was arrested for allegedly threatening to kill himself and Muller when she attempted to break up with him.

Lohan was quick to tell his side of the story to Usmagazine.com Monday. He says that the story of a suicide and murder threat "was proven false and was dropped." The embattled parent explains why he can't get into further detail about Muller's restraining order: "Because of a mutual confidentiality [agreement], Erin and I have I can only say that an order of protection was in place," he says. "Erin once again made a claim that will be proven wrong."
