Stormy Daniels' Attorney Michael Avenatti Arrested for Felony Domestic Violence

Michael Avenatti, famously known as Stormy Daniels' attorney, has been arrested on felony domestic violence charges, TMZ reports.

Police say Avenatti is in custody in Los Angeles accused of domestic assault. "I will never strike a woman".

Reportedly, that's when police showed up and spoke with Avenatti in private for 5-10 minutes before taking him into custody.

Initial reports indicated that the woman in question was Lisa Storie, Avenatti's estranged wife. TMZ, which broke the news today, said the alleged incident occurred Tuesday night, and a second confrontation occurred today at an apartment building in Century City.

TMZ reported that Avenatti followed his wife, shouting, "She hit me first". "I am looking forward to a full investigation, at which point I am confident that I will be fully exonerated". Daniels' suit alleging that Trump was responsible for defamation was dismissed in October by a federal judge, but according to Avenatti, this ruling did not affect Daniels' primary case for the court to annul a non-disclosure agreement that she signed with Trump in 2016.

UPDATE 7:35 P.M. EST: TMZ has now changed its story, saying their initial sources were wrong about the identity of the woman.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, the LAPD has already obtained an emergency protective order, prohibiting Avenatti from going near the alleged victim.

Avenatti held a brief news conference outside the police station after his release.

Michael Avenatti has often hinted that he wants to run for president. "The Vermont Democratic Party has canceled Mr. Avenatti's forthcoming scheduled appearances in Vermont, and will be refunding all ticket sales", the party's communications chief R. Christopher Di Mezzo said in a statement.

The decision to cancel the events was made "almost immediately after the news broke", he said.
