Miami (CNN) -- Actress Lindsay Lohan's father, arrested on suspicion of domestic violence, was released Wednesday evening after posting bail in Tampa, Florida.

Monday evening, police responded to a domestic violence call at Michael Lohan's home, authorities said in a statement. "Upon arrival, Mr. Lohan was arrested for battery on his live-in girlfriend," the statement said.

When taken into custody, Lohan complained of chest pains and was briefly hospitalized, police said. "A short time later, Mr. Lohan checked himself out and was placed under arrest."

According to CNN Tampa affiliate WFTS, a judge set a $5,000 bail Wednesday morning.

Lohan told reporters Wednesday he "didn't lay a hand" on his girlfriend. "I did not hurt her."

He also said he never was served with a restraining order to stay away from the woman. According to WFTS, a Sarasota County judge issued a temporary restraining order Tuesday.

Lohan, 51, was arrested in Los Angeles in connection with alleged domestic violence in March and was charged with one misdemeanor count of corporal injury to a cohabitant.

The relationship between Lohan and his daughter has been publicly strained for years, although the two did undergo family counseling together during her treatment at the Betty Ford Center.
