Stormy Daniels’ lawyer Michael Avenatti spoke to the media after being arrested on suspicion of domestic violence against an unidentified woman in Los Angeles:
I want to thank the hard-working men and women of the LAPD for their professionalism and their work today. They had no option in light of the allegations.
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 am not going to be intimidated from stopping what I am doing. I am a father to two beautiful, smart daughters. I would never disrespect them by touching a woman inappropriately or striking a woman.
Avenatti said he’s “looking forward to a full investigation,” and added that he would be completely exonerated.
