Creepy porn lawyer Michael Avenatti has been arrested once again in the state of California.
The AP reports:
Michael Avenatti, the embattled former attorney for the porn actress Stormy Daniels, was arrested Tuesday evening in California for alleged bail violations, according to a court filing by federal prosecutors.
The arrest came as Avenatti was appearing before the State Bar Court in Los Angeles, which is conducting disciplinary proceedings related to multiple criminal cases that have been filed against him in California and New York, the Daily Beast reported.
Avenatti was arrested by IRS agents on allegation of violating the terms of his pre-trial release, said Thom Mrozek, spokesman for the Los Angeles U.S. attorney’s office.
The documents were under seal, so Mrozek could not provide details on the allegations.
Avenatti was expected to appear in federal court in Santa Ana on Wednesday.
“I understand that Mr. Avenatti has been arrested by the federal authorities for violating the terms of his release,” attorney Steven Bledsoe, who represents Avenatti in the State Bar case, told the Daily Beast after being present for the arrest.
Avenatti said, “Completely innocent,” as he was being led out of the courthouse, according to the media outlet, which reported that the arrest occurred during a break in testimony.
