Michael Avenatti, the lawyer and Donald Trump antagonist who represents Stormy Daniels, was arrested in Los Angeles on suspicion of domestic violence, police confirmed.
Avenatti’s arrest was first reported by TMZ.
Police responded to a call about domestic violence on Tuesday, the Associated Press said, citing a law enforcement official speaking anonymously. Avenatti was taken into custody on Wednesday, it reported.
Avenatti’s law office did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Avenatti rose to prominence when he waged a campaign against Trump and his personal attorney Michael Cohen over hush money allegedly paid to Daniels, a pornographic film actor. Her real name is Stephanie Clifford.
In July, the 47-year-old attorney said that he was exploring a run for president.
