Michael Avenatti, the attorney for adult film star Stormy Daniels, made bail Wednesday evening after his arrest earlier on domestic violence charges. Avenatti appeared before a group of reporters and said he will be “fully exonerated,” denying the accusations and thanking the LAPD. In his brief statement, Avenatti said: “I have never struck a woman. I never will strike a woman. I have been an advocate for women’s rights my entire career and I’m going to continue to be an advocate. I’m not going to be intimidated from stopping what I’m doing. I am looking forward to a full investigation at which point I am confident that I will be fully exonerated.”
Avenatti, 47, was arrested Wednesday afternoon in the 10000 block of Santa Monica Boulevard by officers with the West Los Angeles station, on suspicion of domestic violence in Los Angeles; this after an alleged incident occurred Tuesday and a report was taken, police said. He was held on $50,000 bail on suspicion of intimate partner violence. A court date has been set for Dec. 5.
