The 51-year-old father of Lindsay Lohan was released from a residential treatment facility on Thursday after completing a mandatory sentence in the domestic violence case against ex-fiancée Kate Major.
According to TMZ, Michael moved into a halfway house following his release and has followed the advice of his counsellor in applying for part-time work at the fast food establishment.
Michael, whose probation will end on March 16, apparently hoped to take on the job in order to help him re-assimilate into normal society.
In November 2011, Michael was rushed to hospital with chest pains. The issue cropped up again last month after undergoing surgery for a blood clot in his lung.
Michael first underwent emergency surgery on his heart in February 2011.
