An aspiring movie actress on Monday filed a punishment order against lawyer Michael Avenatti – just a few days after he was imprisoned by the police for violent charges, according to court record from The Blast.
Mareli Miniutti, an actress who appeared in Ocean 8, filed the violence order to order Monday in Los Angeles, reported the report. It was not immediately clear if Miniutti was the woman who accused Avenatti of violence at home last week.
Miniutti did not respond immediately to Fox New’s request for comments.
“I have never abused a woman or committed secret violence”, Avenatti tweeted after the punishment order was first reported. “Every claim the opposite is completely false and made. I’m a goal and I’ll be released.”
Avenida was formally charged Wednesday with violent domestic violence, said LAPD officer Rosario Herrera
The police did not immediately reveal details of the arrest incident, but officer Tony Im, a LAPD spokesman, said the victim has visible injuries.
TMZ, who reportedly reported violent claims, referred to a named law enforcement source who said that the woman’s face was “swollen and injured.”
“I have never been physically addictive to my life either last night,” said Avenatti after his detention. “Any allegations of the opposite are made and meant to hurt my reputation.”
Avenatti, a pronounced critic of President Trump and adult lawyer attorney Stormy Daniels, was considered a rising star in the Democratic Party when he weighed a presidential election in the 2020 election.
Vermont Democratic Party canceled events scheduled for Friday and Saturday, where Avenatti would plan to talk and refund tickets
A hearing aid for the detention order will be held in Santa Monica next month, according to court record.
