Michael Avenatti is now in custody following allegations of domestic violence on Wednesday, The Associated Press reported.
The Los Angeles Police Department tweeted that the star attorney was booked in the afternoon and his bail was set at $50,000.
Sources told TMZ Avenatti's wife's face is "swollen and bruised".
Initial reports indicated that the woman in question was Lisa Storie, Avenatti's estranged wife. "Ms. Storie-Avenatti was not subject to any such incident".
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.
Mrs. Avenatti also expressed skepticism about the report, saying in a statement through her lawyer that her husband wasn't that kind of man.
"In unison we said we need to cancel the events", he said of the town hall meeting and other events planned for Friday and Saturday.

Christopher Di Mezzo, the party's communications director. He added that he didn't know exactly how many tickets had been sold, but that sales were strong in Burlington and slow in White River Junction.
