Well, well, well, Michael Avenatti, perhaps better known as the creepy porn lawyer, is facing a felony charge:

Attorney Michael Avenatti has been placed under arrest for felony domestic violence and was being booked early Wednesday evening.

Los Angeles Police Department officer Jeff Lee said the domestic violence report was taken on Tuesday in West Los Angeles and the arrest was made Wednesday.
“We can confirm that today LAPD Detectives arrested Michael Avenatti on suspicion of domestic violence. This is an ongoing investigation and we will provide more details as they become available,” the LAPD Twitter account posted Wednesday.
In a statement, Avenatti called the allegations “completely bogus.”
“I wish to thank the hard working men and woman of the LAPD for their professionalism they were only doing their jobs in light of the completely bogus allegations against me,” he said. “I have never been physically abusive in my life nor was I last night. Any accusations to the contrary are fabricated and meant to do harm to my reputation. I look forward to being fully exonerated.”
The alleged domestic assault incident was first reported by TMZ.



Go here to read the rest.  Counselor Avenatti was recently in the public limelight attempting to place himself at the front of the lynch mob against Justice Brett Kavanaugh.  He argued that his client, who alleged that Kavanaugh raped young women at parties, should be simply believed, in spite of the fact that there was no evidence supporting her allegation.  Fortunately for him criminal courts operate on a different standard.  He will enjoy the presumption of innocence, be able to call witnesses in his defense,  be able to call his accuser to the stand and subject her to cross examination, be able to testify in his own behalf if he so chooses, and argue his case before a judge or jury.  I would hope that this episode would teach Mr. Avenatti something, but I suspect that he is free of both a sense of irony and a sense of shame.
