Los Angeles: Actress Lindsay Lohan`s father Michael has come out to defend his daughter after she was accused of entering into a brawl with another clubber. Lohan`s father insists his daughter was subjected to cruel taunts prior to the incident, reports a website.

He says the quarrel began when the girl made fun of the actress for taking her father on a night out, and then he was forced to call security. Lohan had a drink thrown over her by an unnamed woman at Los Angeles` nightclub Smoke and Mirrors, while she was enjoying an evening out with her dad.

"There were some people dancing around her and people trying to get to her and I was keeping them away. I heard commotion behind me. And the girl said something and Lindsay cursed and the other girl threw a drink at her and that was it," said Michael Lohan.

"I grabbed Lindsay, I held the other girl back and told security to get her out right away... (The girl said) `What are you doing here with your father?`" he said.

Asked if there was a physical fight between the pair, he said: "Absolutely not, there was no contact whatsoever."

"I`m not out here often, so I don`t get a chance to see her and it`s horrible that I had to be brought into this situation like this."
