The woman who claimed to be assaulted by Michael Avenatti called 911 on the night in question but she did not give a description of any injuries she may have suffered or even identify herself.
The Blast has obtained the written summary record of the 911 call, as officials will not release the actual audio unless a subpoena or court order is given. However, the summary notes from the call give insight into what actress Mareli Miniutti told LAPD on the night of November 14.
According to police records, the call came in at 12:28 AM and Miniutti reported that the alleged incident occurred at Avenatti's apartment building in the Century City area of Los Angeles.
During the call, Miniutti did not discuss any alleged injuries she may have suffered. She also did not mention any weapons being involved with the incident.
Miniutti did not provide her name during the call or identify herself, but the record states "Caller reported being assaulted by suspect Michael Avenatti and officers responded."
On Wednesday, Michael Avenatti's case was sent to the Los Angeles City Attorney's office, after the D.A. decided the incident didn't warrant a felony prosecution. If he is charged at all, it will most likely be on a misdemeanor.
Avenatti was arrested on suspicion of domestic violence on November 14. A few days after the alleged incident, Miniutti obtained a temporary restraining order against him.
In her declaration, Miniutti claimed she had been living with Stormy Daniels’ attorney since January, and on November 13, they got into an argument over money. She claims Avenatti called her an “ungrateful f*cking bitch” and began forcefully hitting her in the face with pillows from the bed.
She says Avenatti exclaimed, “Do not disrespect me,” and then told her she could not sleep in his house that night. She says he grabbed the “wrist of my right arm,” and “attempted to pull me out of bed.”
Avenatti then allegedly grabbed her by the arm and dragged her out of bed, on the floor through the apartment and out the front door into the hallway.
She eventually left and called police from a friend's home after claiming she noticed scratches and red marks on her body. Miniutti's court filing also included photos which she claims show her injuries.
Avenatti has denied being abusive to anyone, and also doubled down that the claims by Miniutti are “bogus” and he will be “exonerated.” He has also suggested that video surveillance of the alleged incident may exist, and hinted that Miniutti’s social media posts contradict her claims.
