Michael Lohan Arrested for Allegedly Getting Drug Addict Kickbacks
Michael Lohan has been arrested again … this time for allegedly getting illegal kickbacks from a rehab facility.
Lindsay Lohan‘s dad was taken into custody on 6 counts of illegal patient brokering … this according to the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s website.
The 60-year-old allegedly cut deals where he referred drug addicts to a Florida facility and got money for each referral. According to authorities, “Patient brokering corrupts our health care system because decisions are motivated by greed instead of patient needs.”
Lohan allegedly got checks totaling more than $25,000.
South Florida, where Lohan has been in the rehab biz for years, is considered the recovery capital of the world. Authorities say the prime patient is someone with good health insurance, so some recovery centers will give these kickbacks because the facility will in turn get paid through the insurance company.
Lohan has had his issues with the law in the past … domestic violence and restraining order issues among others.
