Both Kathryn Major and Lohan, the father of actress Lindsay Lohan, appeared in Southampton Town Court on Long Island on Wednesday. His attorney entered a not guilty plea to the harassment charge.
Moments later, Major testified she wanted to drop the charge. She also agreed to drop an order of protection requiring Lohan to stay away from her. She didn't explain why she had a change of heart.
In July, she told police Lohan had threatened her during a fight. They have since split up.
Town Justice Andrea Schiavoni told Lohan if he stays out of trouble for six months, the case will be dropped.
