REPORT: Michael Avenatti Arrested for Alleged Domestic Violence

REPORT: Michael Avenatti Arrested for Alleged Domestic Violence

Reports say her face was “swollen and bruised.”

The fame-lusting porn lawyer Michael Avenatti is in police custody after he was arrested for allegations of domestic abuse.

According to TMZ, Avenatti’s (soon to be) ex-wive’s face was “swollen and bruised.”

Our law enforcement sources say Avenatti was arrested Wednesday after his estranged wife filed a felony DV report. We’re told her face was “swollen and bruised.”

Our sources say 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.

We’re told during Wednesday’s confrontation the woman ran out of the apartment building and was on the sidewalk on her cellphone with sunglasses covering her eyes, screaming on the phone, “I can’t believe you did this to me.”

We’re told security brought her inside the building and Michael showed up 5 minutes later, ran into the building, chasing after her. He screamed repeatedly, “She hit me first.” We’re told he angrily added, “This is bulls***, this is f***ing bulls***.”

A law enforcement source says on Tuesday, Avenatti “kicked her out of the apartment” and that’s presumably when the alleged domestic violence occurred. We’re told she went back to the apartment on Wednesday to retrieve her belongings and called police to stand by in case things got heated.

They’ve been married since 2011. He filed for divorce in 2017.

We’re told Avenatti is currently in custody.


A girl can dream:

Updates from TMZ:

4:50 PM PT — Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, the LAPD has already obtained an emergency protective order, prohibiting Avenatti from going near the alleged victim. We’re told they will serve him with the legal docs before he’s released from custody. We’re told he will be released on $50,000 bail.

4:10 PM PT — We were initially told by our sources the alleged victim was Avenatti’s estranged wife. We now know it was not. The incident involved a different woman.

“is in police custody after he was arrested for allegations of domestic abuse”

Resume enhancer for the creepy porn lawyer’s 2020 chances in the Democrat race. It worked for Ellison the Muslim.

” smash-mouth politics”…. He will say he was just practicing.

schadenboner status: “Colapsium”


Perfect representative of the Democrats.

Ladies and gentlemen, yet another ‘champion’ of women.

Someone on twitter: I hope he knows a good lawyer

Me: nope, just evil ones

Not that Avenatti would ever lie byt I believe her.

Not that Avenatti would ever lie but I believe her.

This might lessen his chances to be the NeverTrumpers’ 2020 hopeful. Maybe not. Vulgarity and incivility are virtues with that crowd.

Raise your hand if you’re surprised ….


“This is bulls***, this is f***ing bulls***.”

My God! He IS a NeverTrumper!

Somehow this seems entirely predictable. Almost as if he was a character out of a Hollywood B movie. You all know the type the creepy second rate lawyer who cant make a case. The one who distroys his personal life looking for the next big case.

Did he hit her hard enough to demand a press pass?

Foul-mouthed gay Latino immigrant ex-exclusive VA country club members/current board members of the Women’s Initiative and Avenatti clients hardest hit.

    Arminius is spot on.

    I’ll be starting a new group: Creepy Pen Pals. Let’s write Avannetti’s future cellmates and let them know what he is.

Well, given that I never “believe the woman” . . . and I never believe the lawyer . . . this does sort of smell like a setup. She comes by to “retrieve her belongings” (they usually say that) and primed the police for an incident, but doesn’t arrange for witnesses. Which says that she planned to start something, and pin it on him. And American law is fully prepared to help her do so (or so numerous divorced gentlemen have informed me).

Anybody who would have anything at all to do with an obvious scumsucker like Avenetti is almost certainly a pretty accomplished scumsucker in her own right. I’d consider anything she says from that perspective.

In any event, it doesn’t help Avenetti’s presidential ambitions. But those are pretty much futile in the best circumstances, even without something like this. It does, however, keep him in the news, which is essential to any political unknown’s campaign.

    You may be right, but him shouting “she hit me first!” cannot help his case, especially if she denies it and he has no marks.

    Cool – Blame the Victim – Really?

      tom_swift in reply to Vladtheimp. | November 14, 2018 at 9:15 pm

      Well, if you’ve already determined—with your awesome psychic powers—exactly who the victim is, then everything becomes very easy. But if you don’t have awesome psychic powers, then certainty in the face of severe lack of data is mere bigotry.

      Glad I could clear that up for you.

    Arminius in reply to tom_swift. | November 14, 2018 at 10:42 pm

    I’m divorced and I can tell you this is flat wrong:

    “…(a)nd American law is fully prepared to help her do so (or so numerous divorced gentlemen have informed me).”

    I spent ten years on active duty, then ten years in the reserves.

    Well, actually thirteen years on active duty given how much time I spent after I was recalled following 9/11, which is why I’m divorced. That kind of shit is hard on a marriage; my Japanese wife thought I was abandoning her on purpose.

    For some reason the Naval Reserves by default puts cops in intel commands. All of them, men and women, started off their careers thinking these domestic abuse claims were legit. But after a couple of years they grew cynical (or wised up?) and defaulted to the position that if the wife made the claim during a divorce she was lying to get a bigger settlement. But they still have to take the report and follow procedures. Which means taking the accused abuser downtown and locking him up.

    A friend of mine got framed by his ex as they were going through a divorce. She pretended to be distraught and threatened to commit suicide. In front of their kids. She had a bottle of sleeping pills in her hand. He didn’t want their kids to see that so he grabbed her wrist and tried to take them away. She wrenched her arm free and ran into the bathroom.

    Where she called the cops and told them her husband tried to beat her up. And when the cops showed up, surprise, surprise, there were no sleeping pills to be found. At first I figured she had flushed the pills, but how did she get rid of the bottle? Later I decided she must have shoved it up her Hoo Ha as cops don’t search the “victims.” But she did have a nice, fresh, glowing red Indian burn on her arm where he grabbed her. And he had admitted he grabbed her but only to stop her from killing herself. If only they had found the sleeping pills somebody might have believed him; the cops, the prosecutor, the judge. But everybody except his friends thought he was lying. We, on the other hand, knew what a royal beeotch she was.

    Unless Avenatti has sprinkled his apartment with hidden security cameras, though, proving his wife beat herself up it’s going to be tough to overcome the photos submitted into evidence of her swollen and bruised face. Somebody beat her up.

    And as REdEchos points out, running into the lobby shouting “She hit me first” is pretty damning. It can only mean one thing. He hit her second.

    Then angrily shouting in front of God, security, and the world, “This is bulls***, this is f***ing bulls***” is also not recommended behavior if you wish to create the impression that you’d never hit a woman. All Avenatti did was create the impression he’s exactly the kind of out-of-control maniac who would hit a woman. Although he’d probably have curled up into the fetal position if Don Jr. accepted his challenge to fight it out in the octagon.

    Which the court is also now going to look at in a different light.

    You don’t have to like it, but it’s a free country and we’re all free to form our own opinions. And I always thought Avenatti seemed exactly like the kind of out-of-control lunatic who would hit a woman. I’m going to take this as confirmation. None of us are bound to give him the benefit of the doubt unless we’re going to be his judge or jurors. Since I’m allowed to prejudge the case, I do. He’s guilty as sin.

    I wonder how this is going to affect Trump’s ability to collect the full amount of damages the Creepy Porn Lawyer, who just got creepier, and his slut of a client owe him according to the other judge.

      As a lawyer, Avenatti was shouting in public to create a documented scene sure to be witnessed. Then incriminated himself.

      Does the truth really matter? So what if she framed him? She might just be an opportunist cashing in using the tricks of the ambulance chasing trade she learned from him. It’s like OJ finally being put in the slammer after being set-up by a bunch of low-life slime balls. There is no honor among thieves.

      There IS a God.

    Arminius in reply to tom_swift. | November 14, 2018 at 11:01 pm

    BTW, pro tip. When she comes by to “retrieve her belongings” have a witness. Preferably two, with one a woman who can follow her around.

    That way the other witness can confirm that you stayed put while she picked up her things, and if the ex starts beating herself up somebody will be there to witness it. And it does happen.


    I rarely go to Walmart, but if I need to during the summer I always see some overweight girls and women in Daisy Dukes who apparently think the finishing touch on their ensemble is to whack themselves all over their legs with a ball peen hammer. Otherwise, I can’t explain all those little round bruises.

    But I digress. That isn’t what happened here. A thorough application of CPL to the face is, I’m convinced, the logical explanation.

    TX-rifraph in reply to tom_swift. | November 15, 2018 at 5:28 am

    When I was a cop (70’s), I saw this setup more than once. What kind of woman would marry such a POS? I don’t believe either of them?

      TX-rifraph in reply to TX-rifraph. | November 15, 2018 at 5:29 am

      …them. not …them? 0430 hours…

      Arminius in reply to TX-rifraph. | November 15, 2018 at 1:39 pm

      It’s not a matter of believing one over the other. It’s a matter of evidence. If his ex (apparently not his wife, but side squeeze) left Avenatti’s apartment with a swollen and bruised face he’s toast.

      She might have showed up with a swollen and bruised face. But if Avenatti can’t prove that then he’s toast. If he ran into the lobby yelling, “She hit me FIRST” he’s toast.

      If none of these allegations are correct, then it’s a he said she said. And we already know where Avenatti stands on that sort of thing when he attempted to torpedo Kavenaugh with the laughably unbelievable Swetnick. #BelieveTheWoman. As he said, only the old white male misogynists on the judiciary committee don’t automatically believe the woman.

      And it wouldn’t bother me one bit if the judge and jury hold Avenatti to that standard.

      Arminius in reply to TX-rifraph. | November 15, 2018 at 3:30 pm

      Further to my last, the LAPD has gone on the record about the victim’s swollen and bruised face. Or, as officer Tony Im of the LAPD put it, she had visible injuries.

      Avenatti is toast.

      I stand by what I said earlier. Avenatti himself set the standard during the Kavenaugh confirmation hearings. He insisted based on zero evidence that the members of the Senate judiciary committee believe his client, the farcical Swetnick. Well, alrighty then, Mikey, if that’s how you want to play this game it’s OK with me.

      But now we have more evidence pointing to Avenatti’s guilt than we ever had of Kavenaugh’s sex crimes and Trump’s collusion with the Russians combined.

#MeToo was founded in response to the predations of Democratic men. In general, so was modern feminism.

I realize even Avenatti deserves the presumption of innocence, but unless he has security cameras in the apartment showing the missus hitting herself with a ball peen hammer it’s pretty hard to argue with a swollen and bruised face.

So I won’t. Besides, the presumption of innocence only applies inside the courtroom, and then only to the judge and jury. It doesn’t apply to the prosecutor who wouldn’t be arguing the case unless (s)he truly believed he was guilty of the crime, and it certainly doesn’t apply to the arresting officers.

And it doesn’t apply to this Texan who won’t be in the jury box.

It’s kind of fitting, doncha think, that some creep who’d verbally beat up a teen age girl would choose a lawyer who physically beats up women?

I was so looking forward to the results of Avenatti’s investigation. I guess we’re going to have to wait as he suspends that investigation and goes full O.J. and announces he’s looking for the real wife beater.

It should be a hoot to see who Senor Intersectional picks as his new attorney.

She hit me first is not a defense for DV.

regulus arcturus | November 14, 2018 at 7:35 pm

He’s now a lock for nomination to Supreme Court in a Demorat administration.

Wait, but how can that be? Since he speaks for women, and .accuses the bad guys??! His ex-wife must be mistaken!

“Updatedly” – it’s “supposedly” not his wife. But a wymyn *Whoshouldallbebelieved* says it happened and has apparent damage

That thing has a wife?

Does California automatically disbar for felony conviction?

    Arminius in reply to Mr. Sammler. | November 15, 2018 at 12:46 am

    No. A felony conviction constitutes cause. Disbarment is routine, but it’s not automatic. Even if an individual is disbarred it’s possible to get a law license back if the individual can show rehabilitation.

    puhiawa in reply to Mr. Sammler. | November 15, 2018 at 2:23 am

    The man was referred for disciplinary action by no less than the super liberal AG of Washington State himself. CA has been slow walking the referral of counts to numerous to mention.
    CA likes this fellow.

His next gig will be as a representative of the # (pound) MeToo crowd.

I’m sure he will have character witnesses like other porn stars to testify on his behalf.

I wonder when he will be doing his next gig on the View, Whoopie would just love to tangle with that one.

I’m not really good at Haiku, but here’s my Avenatti Haiku.

Porn lawyer gets bail
More loss after SCOTUS fail
Brett drinks beer and smiles

Just trying to build up his Democratic Party creds. Maybe dip into the Democratic Congressional Sexual Assault Fund and Settlement Budget for a bit of spending money.
A friendly judge, maybe a Hawaii judge, will let him go with his expenses paid and a prohibition against further arrests.

A friend of mine, a good sized-guy, had a petite wife. She hit him and he called the cops. The cops came and one of them said to my friend, “Why did you call us? You could have handled her yourself.” My friend replied, “Right, and about now, you’d be arresting me.”

What a low life.
A clinton and obama combined.

Domestic violence is NEVER funny, but an amusing part of this drama is that Creepy Porn Lawyer said that is not true and meant to harm his “reputation”. Quick, someone tell him: his reputation is in the crapper, his big client is a PORN STAR!

You don’t ever hit a woman. I was taught that as most other men when they are 2 years old. I think we have seen the end of the creepy porn lawyer. In the me too era assaulting a woman just doesn’t go over well, even to his previous fan base.

Bucky Barkingham | November 15, 2018 at 7:36 am

IMHO Creepy Porn Lawyer is a publicity whore who will take any press mention that he can get.


I believe his client was the one required to pay the legal fees.

He did have the 4.5 million dollar judgement from a former partner.

    Arminius in reply to rscalzo. | November 15, 2018 at 6:08 pm

    I don’t pretend to be too up to date on this sort of thing and I could be wrong. But last I recall from this soap opera Charles J. Harder, one of Trump’s attorneys, has already rejected one offer from the creepy porn team. Daniels offered to pay $26k and Avenatti a $1 symbolic judgement. Harder says the judgement against Daniels et al after their defamation suit against Trump was tossed means they must pay in full, and Harder intends to make them pay in full.

    Which leads me to believe that Avenatti is on the hook for something even thought Daniels must pay the lion’s share.

to be clear this would in NO WAY keep him from being the democrat nominee, or even being elected, as we have seen with other democrat women abusers.

His fund raiser in Burlington Vermont this coming weekend is Canceled,tickets to be refunded,too bad he will have to seek other means to scam money.

Avenatti’s trying to up his street cred.s. Now he needs to get busted for smoking crack. Right Mayor Barry? Get a picture of yourself smoking a blunt. Right Barack? Now the Ellison angle. Then you’ll be an official Democrat candidate.

He needs to stay in jail

It takes a real big man to hit a woman. But I would expect nothing less from this preening knuckle-dragger.

practicalconservative | November 15, 2018 at 11:39 am

This reaction just in from the Supreme Court on the arrest of Michael Avenatti.

Karma works like a boss, doesn’t it.
