Michael Avenatti Stormy Daniels’ attorney arrested on domestic violence charges	 	 	 			Michael Avenatti

Michael Avenatti, the attorney for a porn actress who claims she was paid hush money to keep silent about an alleged affair with Donald Trump, has reportedly been arrested for domestic violence.

The celebrity news website TMZ, which broke the news of Avenatti's arrest, reported that it stemmed from a physical confrontation between him and a woman at an apartment building Tuesday night in the Century City district of Los Angeles.

'I have never been physically abusive in my life nor was I last night, ' the lawyer said on Wednesday. I have been an advocate for women's right my entire career, and I 'm going to continue to be an advocate.

She says not only was she not injured and not at his apartment, she has never known him to be physically violent.

Vermont Democrats have canceled events with Michael Avenatti in wake of the Stormy Daniels lawyer's arrest.

Police had responded to a domestic violence incident Tuesday and took a report, but Avenatti was taken into custody Wednesday, the official said.

"I did not strike any woman nor have I ever".

Following his representation of Julie Swetnick for her allegations against Kavanaugh, Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley said in October that he was referring Avenatti and Swetnick to the Justice Department. "I am a decent man & I look forward to being exonerated".

Avenatti says in a statement released by his law firm Wednesday that the accusations were "fabricated and meant to do harm to my reputation". She and her attorney called a TMZ story alleging she was attacked by her former husband untrue.

In the months leading up to Cohen's guilty plea in August to campaign finance violations, Clifford's case made a TV personality of Avenatti.

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