This is the latest legal problem Avenatti is facing after being referred by the Senate Judiciary Committee to the DOJ for a criminal investigation into false claims he and his client made against Brett Kavanaugh.
Law enforcement officials have reportedly arrested attorney Michael Avenatti for felony domestic violence after his estranged wife filed a police report Tuesday over an incident that left her face "swollen and bruised."
Sources told TMZ that "the alleged incident occurred Tuesday, but there was a confrontation Wednesday between the two at an exclusive apartment building in the Century City area of L.A."
The woman reportedly ran out of the apartment building today, screaming on her cell phone, "I can't believe you did this to me. I'm going to get a restraining order against you."
Avenatti later reportedly screamed, "She hit me first," adding, "This is bulls***, this is f***ing bulls***."
