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.
Avenatti’s estranged wife, Lisa Storie, filed a criminal complaint against the lawyer with authorities in Los Angeles, TMZ is reporting.
Law enforcement sources told TMZ that Storie’s face was ‘swollen and bruised’ when she submitted her complaint to authorities.
The alleged incident took place on Tuesday at an apartment in the Century City section of Los Angeles, TMZ is reporting.

Sources told TMZ that the couple had another confrontation on Wednesday.
Storie was seen Wednesday running out of the apartment and screaming into her cell phone while wearing sunglasses to conceal the alleged bruises on her face.
‘I can’t believe you did this to me,’ she reportedly yelled into the phone.
Security guards then led Storie back inside the building, according to TMZ.
Five minutes later, Avenatti showed up and ran into the building, chasing after her.
‘She hit me first,’ Avenatti is reported to have said repeatedly.
‘This is bulls***, this is f***ing bulls***,’ he angrily said.
Investigators told TMZ that Avenatti kicked Storie out of his apartment on Tuesday, which was when the alleged incident took place.
Storie then returned to the apartment on Wednesday to retrieve her things and asked police to wait nearby in case things escalated.
The couple married in 2011. Avenatti filed for divorced last year.
He is reported to be in police custody.
Storie called her estranged husband ’emotionally abusive’, ‘hot-tempered’ and ‘angry and vindictive’ in court documents last year.
The pair began proceedings in November, when Storie filed in Los Angeles before having her petition dismissed.
It was later moved to a court in Orange County and Avenatti was the one who filed the papers.
In one document which was obtained by Fox News, Storie described an incident at their $17million home where she said her ex-husband became ‘verbally aggressive’.
She has since retracted her description of him and said the pair are trying to divorce civilly and in private.
She said there had never been any form of abuse – physical, emotional or verbal – between them and described him as a ‘good man’ of whom she has never been afraid.
Avenatti has also told DailyMail.com that he never abused his wife, the mother of his son, in any way.
The court document reads: ‘[Avenatti] is hot tempered and used to having his way – when he doesn’t he gets extremely loud and verbally aggressive. ‘
It goes on to describe an incident on December 17 when he arrived at their home to find Storie had changed the locks on their home.
‘I offered for him to be with [their son] for 9am to 7pm with a nanny present. He took umbrage with the request, showed up with his 15-year-old daughter and demanded access to the house…he immediately started yelling at me,’ she said in the documents.
In her statement in May – after telling Fox News that she was frustrated that their divorce had not yet been finalized – Storie painted her estranged husband differently.
‘Michael has in the past been a loving and caring husband and is a loving and caring father. I never called the police because I was never threatened with harm. I never sought to have him excluded from our home because I felt threatened or feared for my safety or that of my son.
‘Further, he has paid all child support and spousal support. He is a good man.
Storie added that journalists were trying to ‘harm him’ with a ‘defamatory story that has no basis in reality’.
Avenatti told DailyMail.com in May: ‘There was never any abuse, alleged or otherwise, by me in my relationship with my wife.’
‘There are a host of things that I could disclose relating to Lisa, her habits and the circumstances around her filing but I will decline to do so at this time as she is the mother to my son and I do not think it is appropriate to malign her,’ he added.
In May, Storie told Fox News: ‘I need to be divorced and if [Michael Avenatti] continues to paint the narrative, he can ignore our case! Everyone reports we are divorced. That does not help my goal to get a divorce.
Ahmad H. Mims was arrested in Onondaga County and Warren County on Sept. 15 after he beat up his girlfriend and held his gun to her head. Mims is a Syracuse police officer. He was suspended with pay shortly after the arrests. (Provided by NYS Troopers)
SYRACUSE, N.Y. — A city cop held his gun to his girlfriend’s head, beat her up and threatened her friend at gunpoint, according to court documents.
Ahmad H. Mims was arrested Sept. 15 and charged with assault, menacing and criminal weapon possession, all misdemeanors.
Court documents obtained by reveal the brutality of the crimes Mims was charged with. In a sworn statement, his girlfriend told of times Mims attacked her, brandished his gun and threatened to kill himself if she went to the authorities, often after a night of drinking. She described four instances over two months.
The girlfriend reported his abuse and suicidal behavior to the Syracuse Police Department on Sept. 8.
Mims has been suspended from the department with pay since Sept. 17.
Sgt. Rick Helterline, a Syracuse police spokesman, said Mims was out of work on an “unrelated injury” for the days between the girlfriend’s report and Mims’ arrest. Helterline said police recovered his service weapon “immediately after this information was developed.”
Mims, 34, is a member of the Crime Reduction Team, a specialized unit tasked with combating the city’s worst criminals. He grew up in North Syracuse, and was a standout high school basketball player. He’s been with the Syracuse Police Department since 2011 and made $106,710 last year.
Here’s the account of what happened, according to sworn statements from the girlfriend and a witness, which prompted an investigation and arrest:
Mims is accused of holding his girlfriend at gunpoint in the passenger seat of his Dodge Durango while driving. He had gone to her house in Cicero at 3 a.m. on July 6 and tried to take her cell phone.
While the two argued, one of her male friends pulled up to the house. She had invited the friend over for support after she and Mims fought earlier in the night, she said. The friend and girlfriend said Mims began yelling at the man and approached the car. He pulled a black handgun from his waistband, pulled the slide to put a round in the chamber and told the man to “get the **** out of here.”
Mims — who the girlfriend said was drunk — then forced his girlfriend into his SUV and began driving around Cicero while shouting at her and waving his handgun. She said she begged him to let her go. As they drove on South Bay Road over Interstate 81, he put the gun to the left side of her head. He swore at her and hit her at least once in the head.
The girlfriend fled the vehicle as they pulled into the parking lot of the Kinney Drugs store on Thompson Road. Mims chased her down, put her in a headlock and dragged her back into the car, she said.
Several weeks later, the couple went to Lake George. After spending the day on Mims’ boat with friends, the two got in an argument. He had discovered Snapchat messages on her phone from male friends, which she described as innocent.
They were in his vehicle near Million Dollar Beach when the argument began. She tried to jump from the moving vehicle. He pulled her into his lap and punched her in the face and ribs then threw her against the passenger door. Blood spattered from her face onto the window.
She said Mims was immediately remorseful, and pulled into a rest area where he began hitting himself in the head with his gun.
They spent the rest of the weekend at the Rodeway Inn hotel icing her injuries, since her face was swollen and bloody. They agreed to make up a story that she had been jumped in a bar so family and friends wouldn’t know what had happened.
About two weeks after that, the girlfriend told Mims the relationship was over. She threatened to tell police what he had done. Mims left to drink, she said. Later, he texted her from his Syracuse police email account saying he wouldn’t go to jail. He sent a picture of himself with a gun in his mouth.
Three days later, on Sept. 8, the girlfriend again told Mims the relationship was over after he had decided to go out drinking with some cop friends. Mims again threatened suicide. The girlfriend then called another officer in the SPD to report his behavior.
Around 5 a.m. on Sept. 9, Mims was picked up by police and brought to the hospital. On Sept. 10, a family court judge approved a restraining order barring Mims from going near the girlfriend, and she decided to press criminal charges.
Warrants were issued for Mims’ arrest in Onondaga County and Warren County on Sept. 15, after state police investigated and took sworn statements from the girlfriend and the man Mims’ allegedly threatened with a gun.
According to an arrest report, Mims turned himself in to state police in Syracuse at 10:50 a.m. on Sept. 15. He was arraigned at 5 p.m. then transported to Warren County and arrested for the assault in Lake George.
He was arraigned in Glens Falls City Court Sunday morning, Sept. 16.
That Monday, the Syracuse Police Department suspended him. He’s been suspended with pay since, pending the results of his case. His court date in Warren County is scheduled for Dec. 13.
Niether Mims’ attorney, the girlfriend nor the Onondaga County District Attorney handling the case could be reached for comment Wednesday.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A 15-year-old girl who investigators say searched on her phone for “scary movies where kids kill parents” and had rap lyrics about wanting her father dead is accused of killing her parents.
Daejona M. Holmes faces two counts of second-degree murder, two counts of armed criminal action and tampering with physical evidence. She will be tried as an adult.
Holmes is accused of shooting and killing mom Kinderly Holmes and dad Brian Starr on April 9 at their home in the 5000 block of Belmeade Road.
Court records say that police found Holmes, 37, and Starr, 38, both shot to death inside their home.
Daejona Holmes reportedly called 911 from a different location and said a robbery had occurred and her parents were shot. She later changed her story and said her father shot her mother, and she shot her father.
When investigators got a search warrant and looked at Holmes’ phone, they found the web searches, rap lyrics and a video of Holmes holding a gun and dancing in her bedroom. They also found a hand-drawn stick figure illustration where one labelled “me” was pointing a gun at another labelled “dad.” A third illustration had a stick figure with X’s for eyes and blood around it.
A witness told police that Holmes called him, saying she needed help. He met her at a McDonald’s on Eastwood Trafficway where she told him her parents had been shot. The witness added he had to talk her into calling 911. She also made nine phone calls with her mother’s phone following the shooting and waited an hour to call 9-1-1.
Court documents show investigators spoke with Holmes on April 9 and again May 11 to clarify her story. During the first interview she said her parents were fighting and she heard a gunshot. She said she went upstairs and passed her father, but they didn’t exchange words, and she found her mother dead in her bedroom. She then said she picked up a gun before walking back downstairs, and shot her dad as he approached her. She said she ran in and out of the house and threw the gun in a nearby yard.
During her second interview she said she had actually gone back into the house twice; once to get her cell phone and another time to get her mom’s cell phone. She admitted to changing her clothes prior to leaving the home and moving her dad’s body close to the front door. She couldn’t explain why she didn’t leave the house upon hearing the first gunshot, why she didn’t call 9-1-1 sooner, or why she made nine phone calls from her mom’s cell phone.
Prosecutors have requested a bond of $150,000.

58-year-old Tony Brown was found in a pool full of blood after his 57-year-old wife, Lawanda Brown, allegedly shot him in the head.
According to the New York Post, the two were working on a project for their consulting agency, when things suddenly took a turn for the worse.
Lawanda said she didn’t like the tone of voice Tony was using towards her when she asked him to search Google for a project template. She told investigators that the last thing she remembered was her husband walking out of the room.
Shortly after, she said her memory then became “a blur.”
Tony was airlifted to the hospital where he is in critical condition. Lawanda was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder, according to the New York Post.
She is being held on a $500,000 bail.
According to the New York Post, Tony was nominated in 2001 by President George W. Bush for a position in the US Treasury Department.

A father has been seriously injured after jumping in the line of fire trying to protect his pregnant daughter from being shot….
According to NewsWeek:
Police said 74-year-old Frederick Waring “took the brunt of the injuries” attempting to save the life of his 23-year-old daughter, who is five months pregnant with twins, reported KYW-TV. Waring is reported to have been shot at least 10 times and is in the hospital in critical condition.
The shootout on the day of the woman’s wedding occurred around 10:30 p.m. on Sunday, May 20 in southwest Philadelphia. Detectives believe the shooting was the result of a domestic issue after the ex-wife of the groom turned up with two other men.
In a news conference, Philadelphia Police Lieutenant John Walker said there was an altercation which stemmed from “jealousy” after the man’s ex-wife saw a Facebook post saying how he was about to get married again.. Shortly before 10:30 p.m. Sunday, the ex-wife and others went to the 23-year-old woman’s home on the 5800 block of Hadfield Street, police said. After the ex-wife approached the woman, “there was some type of altercation,” Lt. John Walker of Southwest Detectives said at a news conference Monday afternoon.
“As that escalated, some of the males in the crowd, at least two, pulled out handguns,” Walker said. “The father of the 23-year-old woman jumped in front of his daughter. Obviously, he took the brunt of the injuries.” The father was shot as many as 10 times in his upper body, Walker said. His daughter was shot in the left hip and leg.
Police did not release either victim’s name or that of the ex-wife. Neighbors on the block where the father and daughter live confirmed that the father’s name is Fred Waring. He was in critical condition Monday afternoon at Penn Presbyterian Medical Center, while his daughter was in stable condition, Walker said. He said the motive for the shooting was “jealousy.”
