A prominent Tampa Bay attorney was arrested and charged with domestic violence.

An arrest affidavit states John Trevena, 57, hit his ex-wife, shoved her to the ground and kicked her after showing up at her apartment on Monday night.

Largo police say Trevena was trying to take some of his ex-wife’s belongings that he believed belonged to him.

Trevena represents Michael Drejka, who is charged with manslaughter for the July 2018 shooting death of Markeis McGlockton in a Clearwater parking lot.

Drejka says he was standing his ground. His next court date is April 26. Drejka’s trial is scheduled to begin on Aug. 19.

Trevena faces a misdemeanor charge of domestic battery, according to the arrest affidavit. He is scheduled to have a first appearance in court at 10:30 a.m. Tuesday.
