Stormy Daniel’s Attorney Michael Avenatti has been arrested on suspicion of domestic violence early Wednesday evening.
Los Angeles Police Department officer Jeff Lee said the domestic violence report was taken on Tuesday in West Los Angeles and the arrest was made Wednesday.
“We can confirm that today LAPD Detectives arrested Michael Avenatti on suspicion of domestic violence.”

“This is an ongoing investigation and we will provide more details as they become available,” the LAPD Twitter account posted Wednesday.
In a statement, Avenatti called the allegations “completely bogus.”
“I wish to thank the hard working men and women of the LAPD for their professionalism they were only doing their jobs in light of the completely bogus allegations against me,” he said.

“I have never been physically abusive in my life nor was I last night. Any accusations to the contrary are fabricated and meant to do harm to my reputation. I look forward to being fully exonerated.”

Avenatti posted $50,000 bail and left police custody Wednesday evening.

He told reporters waiting outside the station, “I have never struck a woman. I never will strike a woman.”
“I am confident I will be fully exonerated,” he added.
The alleged domestic assault incident was first reported by the TMZ outlet.

The alleged domestic violence incident could dash Avenatti’s prospects of a potential Presidential run as a Democratic candidate and clash with the image he has presented of himself as an advocate for women, including Stormy Daniels in her clash with Trump and an accuser of recently confirmed Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

The Vermont Democratic Party canceled Avenatti’s appearances for Friday and Saturday following his arrest, and it promises to refund all ticket sales, said Christopher Di Mezzo, the party’s communications director.

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