Is this the end of Stormy Daniels’ controversial legal representative? The Los Angeles Police Department arrested Michael Avenatti on Wednesday “on suspicion of felony domestic abuse,” of an unidentified woman, per NBC.
“Officers in West Los Angeles responded to an incident involving Avenatti, and he was detained in the process of taking an incident report, the sources said. He was booked into jail but released on $50,000 bond Wednesday evening.”
TMZ reported that Avenatti allegedly stated, “She hit me first” when encountered by law enforcement.
Some are speculating that the Democrat-friendly media face, who has spoken openly of plans to run as a Democrat for president in 2020, was somehow set up—or at least, a cryptic tweet of Avenatti’s seems to imply something of the sort:
First Mueller and now me. When we are fully exonerated I am coming for you Jacob Wohl aka Surefire.

However, the Los Angeles Times‘ report states that the domestic violence “allegations were made by a woman who had ‘visible injuries,’ including bruises, according to a law enforcement official who spoke on the condition of anonymity” to the outlet.
