Michael Avenatti, the attorney who became famous in 2018 for representing Stormy Daniels, has been arrested by the IRS.
Federal agents arrested Avenatti on Tuesday for allegedly violating the terms of his pretrial release.
Avenatti is accused of stealing millions of dollars from clients along with extortion, tax fraud, and other charges. Daniels, real name Stephanie Clifford, cut ties with him shortly after the charges were announced last year.
