Showboat attorney and former cable news mainstay Michael Avenatti was arrested once again at a meeting of the California Bar Association on Tuesday.
Avenatti had been attending a disciplinary hearing at the bar, facing charges of defrauding a former client that could cost him his ability to actively practice as a lawyer in California.
But it seems the bar association is the least of his problems. The former liberal hot shot was arrested on the basis of violating the terms of his pretrial conditions. Avenatti is already facing criminal charges for accusations of frauding clients, including an attempt to extort sporting company Nike.
Photos emerged Tuesday of Avenatti being escorted away in an elevator by federal agents. He told onlookers as he was led out from the Los Angeles courthouse that he was “totally innocent.”
It’s unclear how Avenatti violated the terms of his pretrial release, but United States Attorney Geoffrey Berman confirmed that as the cause of his arrest in a document filed with the federal court system.

Being arrested while fighting disbarment proceedings is a considerable fall from fame for the bellicose Democrat “street fighter,” who was promoted as a possible Presidential candidate by leading liberal pundits as late as 2018. Avenatti explored a potential candidacy, only to back down when his recent string of legal struggles began.
The hotshot bigmouth could be facing penalties up to life in prison for his attempted extortion of Nike, although it’s likely he’ll get off his a slap on the wrist.
One of Avenatti’s most bitter rivals, Donald Trump Jr, had a laugh at his former nemesis’ expense when it was revealed the showboat was arrested yet again.

It appears likely that the Democratic hotshot of yesterday will spend the election he planned on being a candidate in behind bars.
HOAX: Police Report Alleges Texas A&M Student Faked Racist Letters on Car Dashboard
The suspected hoaxster stopped cooperating with police after being confronted with video evidence.
Texas A&M University police are describing an incident in which a black student claimed racist and anti-Black Lives Matter messages were left on his car windshield as a hate hoax, after investigating Isaih Martin’s claims that he was targeted with the messages.
Martin had claimed that three pieces of paper stating “All Lives Matter,” “You Don’t Belong Here,” and a racial slur were placed on his car windshield when his vehicle was placed in the parking lot of an on-campus apartments. His claims elicited an outpouring of sympathy from the university community, with Texas A&M’s official Twitter even consoling the supposed victim without waiting for any verification of his dubious claims.
However, shortly after police began investigating the incident, Martin’s claim began to unravel. The Texas A&M University police obtained footage from a pool camera revealing that while a few individuals walked within several yards of his car, none of them stopped at the vehicle long enough to place the three piece of paper under the windshield wipers. Instead, Martin was the only individual who interacted with the vehicle long enough to place the notes.
“Martin immediately walks to the passenger side of his vehicle, but does not open any doors. Martin is seen toward the front of his vehicle. A brief white speck is seen from about mid-torso of Martin moving toward his vehicle. Another white speck is seen near his chest area. Martin is then seen stepping back and onto the sidewalk in front of his vehicle, most likely taking photos and videos. He then approaches his vehicle again on the passenger side and remains there for a few moments. He is then seen walking around the front of his vehicle. Martin then enters the driver`s door and drives away a few moments later. The total time spent at his vehicle is 1 minute, 15 seconds.”
An investigating officer accused Martin of placing the notes on his windshield himself, confronting him with video evidence revealing that he was the only person close enough to his vehicle to place them there. Martin stopped cooperating with police on the investigation shortly after an officer confronted him on the video footage. The university senior won’t be charged because he didn’t file a formal police report on the matter.
Martin made his Twitter account private in the hours after the police report became public knowledge.
