Michael Avenatti, the combative lawyer and cable news fixture who came to prominence after he sued President Donald Trump on behalf of an adult-film star, was arrested Wednesday in Los Angeles on suspicion of domestic violence, police said.

According to celebrity-news site TMZ, which first reported the story citing "law enforcement sources", the arrest occurred after a confrontation "at an exclusive apartment building in the Century City area of L.A".

Avenatti is now in custody, according to TMZ.

The Los Angeles Police Department said he was booked on a felony domestic violence charge, with a $50,000 bail. But Avenatti says he's "never been physically abusive" in his life. "I have been an advocate for women's rights my entire career".

On Twitter, Ms Avenatti said: "I have known Michael Avenatti for over 26 years we met when he was 21 years old and we were married for 13 years". He added he's looking forward to the investigation and is confident he'll be "fully exonerated." . "I would never disrespect them by touching a woman inappropriately or striking a woman".

The official, who spoke to the Associated Press Wednesday on condition of anonymity, says police took Avenatti into custody Wednesday after responding to an alleged domestic violence incident.

Avenatti, who in the past has said he's exploring a 2020 presidential run against Trump, garnered attention when he began representing Daniels.

But her lawsuit was put into jeopardy when both Trump and Cohen declared that they would not seek to enforce the non-disclosure agreement.

The allegation would also mark another legal issue for the California attorney, whose firm settled a case with the IRS in July and was ordered last month to pay a multimillion-dollar judgment over debt to a former law partner.

The party was set to host Avenatti in Burlington on Friday and in White River Junction on Saturday.
