    Does Michael Lohan have a new friend?

    Lindsay Lohan's dad has lent a helping hand to "Tan Mom," aka Patricia Krentcil.

    After the overly bronzed woman was arrested and placed into a detox facility following complaints of an intoxicated woman at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, Lohan revealed he reached out to her.

    Michael tells E! News: "Evidently she heard that I was trying to get Lindsay into Lukens because it's high end and individualized treatment. She reached out to me through friends. Ironically, she went to the same high school as me (Cold Spring Harbor, Long Island), but actually [was] in my younger brother's class."

    The rehab mentor was spotted taking Patricia to the treatment facility on Thursday in Palm Beach, Fla., even carrying her bags for her.

    Michael added Patricia wasn't what he expected when he met her either.

    "I must say that I was pleasantly surprised when I met her because she was nothing like people made her out to be. If she stays with 'the program' she will beat her addictions."

    Now this is quite the duo.
