Creepy porn lawyer Michael Avenatti was arrested on Monday in New York on federal extortion charges.
Michael Avenatti and an unnamed co-conspirator were accused of trying to extort $20+ million from Nike.
According to the complaint, Avenatti threatened to hold a press conference to announce misconduct by Nike unless the athletic apparel company hired Avenatti and his co-conspirator to conduct an internal investigation for over $20 million.
Although the co-conspirator was not named in the criminal complain against Avenatti, The Wall Street Journal reported that Avenatti’s co-conspirator is celebrity attorney and CNN legal analyst Mark Geragos.
It is unclear whether Geragos has been charged by the feds or is cooperating with investigators.
