Attorney to the (nevermind) Michael Avenatti continues his midlife crisis from by getting arrested for attempting to extort $20 million from Nike.  Perusing the article, it strikes me that he appears to have been under the impression that Nike had no lawyers who might be able to refer his threats to the FBI and other governing authorities. 

Needless to say, he should have just retired with the money he had and bought the Camaro or carbon fiber bicycle. 

If he could have afforded it, of course.  One has to wonder how long this has been brewing--Avenatti has gone from being a spectacularly successful lawyer to a laughingstock, seemingly in the space of less than two years.  How did he go from winning cases with a payout of hundreds of millions of dollars to declaring bankruptcy for his business over $28,700?
