OH THE IRONY …
From TMZ comes the following, Michael Avenatti was arrested yesterday for felony domestic violence. Avenatti, Stormy Daniels’ attorney, potential Democratic 2020 candidate and CPL has been arrested on suspicion of felony domestic violence. Isn’t this the same individual who is all in on the #MeToo movement and says we must believe the girl? How about now Avenatti? Looks like someone is getting a dose of his own medicine.
Why should Avenatti be given the presumption of innocence? He and his CPL actions have never given any of the accused the same, why should he be afforded such? You mean because you are innocent until proven guilty in the United States? Maybe CPL will learn a lesson on this one when he is now the accused. What sweet irony.
Michael Avenatti, who became famous for representing Stormy Daniels in her battle with President Trump, has been arrested for felony domestic violence … law enforcement sources tell TMZ.
Our law enforcement sources say Avenatti was arrested Wednesday after a woman filed a felony DV report. We’re told her face was “swollen and bruised” with “red marks” on both cheeks.
Our sources say the alleged incident occurred Tuesday night, but there was another confrontation Wednesday between the two at an exclusive apartment building in the Century City area of L.A.
We’re told Wednesday afternoon the woman was on the sidewalk on her cellphone with sunglasses covering her eyes, sobbing and screaming on the phone, “I can’t believe you did this to me. I’m going to get a restraining order against you.”
We’re told security brought her inside the building, took her upstairs and Michael showed up 5 minutes later and ran into the building. He screamed repeatedly, “She hit me first.” We’re told he angrily added, “This is bulls***, this is f***ing bulls***.” We’re told he tried getting into the elevator but security denied him access.
Cops showed up and escorted Avenatti into a corner of the apartment lobby and spoke with him for 5 to 10 minutes and then took him into custody.
UPDATE I: Avenatti bailed out of jail. Claims he never struck a women, yet in the above story from TMZ, Avenatti is reported to have yelled, ”She hit me first.” Wouldn’t that mean that he hit her second? I guess CPL will know what it is like to just be accused of a crime.
Avenatti bailed out and held a brief news conference, saying, “I have never struck a woman. I will never strike a woman.” He added he’s looking forward to the investigation and is confident he’ll be “fully exonerated.”
