Shortly ago during a break in his CA State Bar hearing in LA.
The hearing he testifying in is centered around stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars from clients. This is only one hearing as the embattled attorney is also facing a federal indictment for allegedly extorting Nike and embezzling Stormy Daniels advancement from her book deal.
As he was taken into custody by federal agents, it could be an indication of further charges for Avenatti.
The attorney earlier had the SDNY reject delaying his hearing slated to start on January, 21st. This arrest probably did not help his evening improve so far.
