High profile Miami attorney Mark Gold has been arrested by Miami Beach police.

Gold was arrested early Wednesday morning and charged with felony battery.

Gold is the founder of The Ticket Clinic, a law firm that specializes in defending people charged with traffic offenses.

According to the arrest affidavit, Gold and his fiancee got into a "verbal altercation over things he found on Facebook about her that then escalated into a physical confrontation."

The arresting officer also says in the affidavit that Gold struck his fiancee in the face and "then pushed her to the ground."

(Miami New Times reports that Gold's fiancee is 21-year-old "party girl" Chandler Sutherland.)

The arrest report says Gold fled after the altercation and was apprehended when officers spotted him walking on a bridge on the Venetian Causeway just a few blocks from his home on West Rivo Alto Drive.

In 2011, Gold made international headlines after filing a lawsuit against a Miami strip club.
The defendant, [Goldrush,] a strip club, served the plaintiff, a lawyer, so much alcohol that he became "temporarily unconscious, and further to the extent that he had a complete loss of judgment, rational thought, or the ability to enter into lawful contracts or agreements." Then the defendant charged his credit card $18,930 for "goods and services.
