Actress Mareli Miniutti is seeking a restraining order against Michael Avenatti, the attorney who was arrested last week on suspicion of felony domestic violence. Miniutti filed a petition in Los Angeles County Superior Court seeking the restraining order. The legal action was first reported by entertainment news site The Blast. The outlet reported Miniutti also made the domestic violence report against Avenatti. Her involvement was previously unknown.
Avenatti was also formally charged last week with felony domestic violence, according to a statement from LAPD Officer Rosario Herrera. Police didn't immediately disclose details about the arrest incident but Officer Tony Im, an LAPD spokesman, said "the victim had visible injuries."
A hearing for the restraining order will be held in Santa Monica on December 10, according to the court records.
