Harassment charges filed against Michael Lohan after he allegedly attacked his former fiancee will automatically be dismissed if he stays out of trouble for six months, a Southampton Town Court Justice ruled Wednesday.

The adjournment in contemplation of dismissal ruling by Southampton Town Court Justice Andrea Schiavoni was for a July incident in which Lohan's former fiancee, Kate Major, said he shoved and kicked her.

Major told police Lohan kicked her in the face and threatened to kill her as the two argued over a missed cell phone call, according to published reports.

Major said Wednesday she no longer feels threatened by Lohan and answered, "No" when the court asked if she wanted an order of protection.

After the ruling, Lohan, 50, of Southampton, said, "I'm going back to living my life. I wish nothing but the best for her. I still hope we can be friends."

When asked if he were still seeing Major, he said, "I saw her in court today."

Michael Lohan is the father of troubled actress Lindsay Lohan, a Merrick native.
