"You know my character, you know me as a man", Mr. Avenatti said, also saying that "I am not going to be intimidated" from his work.

The Los Angeles Police Department tweeted that the star attorney was booked in the afternoon and his bail was set at $50,000.

Avenatti gained fame for representing porn actress Stormy Daniels, who has said she had sex with President Donald Trump in 2006.

According to the celebrity website TMZ, Avenatti was allegedly involved in a dispute with an unidentified woman on Tuesday and was arrested on Wednesday following a second confrontation.

TMZ, which first reported news of the arrest, said that the lawyer "kicked" a woman "out of the apartment".

On Wednesday, TMZ reported that a woman ran out of the apartment building in Century City and was on the sidewalk on her cellphone with sunglasses covering her eyes.

'This is bulls***, this is f***ing bulls***,' he angrily said. We're told he tried getting into the elevator but security denied him access. The LAPD, when contacted by Deadline, confirmed Avenatti's arrest but had no further details.

The charges arose from an alleged Tuesday incident, prompting authorities to respond and take a report, an unidentified law enforcement official told The Associated Press. She returned Wednesday to gather her belongings, but it looks like things quickly turned south.

We're told Avenatti is now in custody.
