Former Stormy Daniels lawyer Michael Avenatti, 48, was arrested abruptly in southern California by federal agents on Tuesday night during a disciplinary hearing involving the California State Bar.

While on break during the hearing, the agents placed him under arrest on the grounds of violating the terms of his pretrial release, according to ABC News. However, they are unable to specifically list how because the documents are “under seal.”

The article goes on to state the following:

The California State Bar is currently asking a judge to prohibit the lawyer from further practice because it believes he poses a “threat of substantial harm to the public” if he continues legal practice. Avenatti is being accused by the agency of scamming $840,000 from a legal client with a forged document, pocketing the funds for his personal use.

Avenatti is expected to be detained overnight and appear tomorrow at a Santa Ana federal court.

Donald Trump Jr. tweeted after the arrest: “M.A.G.A: Michael Avenatti Got Arrested. Again.”
