The celebrity attorney Michael Avenatti was arrested Wednesday for felony domestic violence after his wife filed a complaint, according to a report from TMZ.

Avenatti, who is currently considering a bid for president on the Democratic Party ticket in the 2020 election, allegedly assaulted his wife on Tuesday but TMZ says there was a separate incident between the two on Wednesday as well in Los Angeles.

Avenatti filed for divorce from his wife of six years in 2017 and the two have been in prolonged negotiations over the custody of their children and the division of their assets. (RELATED: Avenatti May Sue Tucker Carlson For Defending His Own Daughter)

A “law enforcement source” told the outlet that Avenatti “kicked [his wife] out of the apartment,” and it was around then when the alleged assault took place, according to TMZ.

TMZ says Avenatti is currently in custody. He did not respond to requests for comment from The Daily Caller News Foundation.
