Lohan has denied the latest reports about his arrest.
"I was not arrested," he told RadarOnline. "Erin and I had an argument. She has an ongoing order of protection against me. She called and said I violated it by making a phone call to her. I went down there today and saw the judge and I handled it and that was it."
