HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. (AP) — Attorney Dominic Barbara, who once represented some of Long Island's most notorious clients, has been arrested again.

Newsday ( ) reports that Nassau County police arrested Barbara on Sunday night after he allegedly tried to choke a woman.

Police say the woman, who was not identified, filed a complaint at a precinct in Williston Park. The woman said the two had been arguing when Barbara allegedly attempted to choke her.

Barbara once represented clients including Joey Buttafuoco and Jessica Hahn, a church secretary who had an affair with televangelist Jim Bakker.

He has previously been arrested on charges of harassing his ex-wife, and faces a larceny charge for shoplifting.

The name of his attorney was not immediately known, but Barbara has represented himself on some prior arrests.

He faces arraignment Monday.
