Well it looks like all of that deception finally caught up to Michael Avenatti.
Just moments ago ex-Stormy Daniels attorney Michael Avenatti was taken out of the California State Bar Court in LA the custody of federal agents.
Avenatti was taken into federal custody around 6pm PST during a break in testimony in a disciplinary case in which he was testifying to accusations he stole hundreds of thousands of dollars from a client.
You can read the letter from the U.S. Attorney about the arrest warrant issued below.
A source with the U.S. attorney’s office in Los Angeles says that Avenatti was arrested for allegedly violating the terms of his pre-trial release on a case in which he is accused of extortion, theft of millions of dollars from clients, cheating on taxes and lying to investigators.
