Clearwater Beach, FL (March 13, 2019) – John Trevena, a lead defense attorney for a high-profile manslaughter trial, has now been charged with domestic battery on Monday afternoon.
Trevena was arrested in Clearwater and charged with domestic battery after an incident with his ex-wife. Allegedly, Trevena was accused of hitting and kicking his ex-wife, Meredith, after he arrived at her apartment to take back items that he felt belonged to him. Things quickly turned physical, according to police.
His ex-wife recorded the incident on her cellphone. In the video, you could see Trevena approaching her and shoving her as she tried to retrieve the items that he tried to steal from her apartment. She told police that she was shoved to the ground and kicked in the groin when she tried to get back up on her feet.
Meredith had visible nail marks, swelling, and redness on her hands and wrists that she said were defensive wounds.
Currently, Trevena is the lead attorney defending a man who was arrested for a controversial shooting recently.
