Michael T. Pines Arrested While Trying To Save Clients’ La Costa Home
LA COSTA, Calif. — A local attorney known for going to extreme measures to save his clients’ homes was arrested on Wednesday and an exclusive video obtained by 10News reveals the threat that led to one of the attorney’s arrests.
Encinitas attorney Michael T. Pines was arrested on Wednesday for violating a restraining order against him. Before he was arrested, Pines was in the process of fighting for clients who he said were illegally evicted from their La Costa home.
Wednesday’s arrest was Pines’ third arrest in less than a week. On Saturday, Pines was arrested when Carlsbad police said he became violent with a security guard at a La Costa home. Pines was also arrested the day before for trespassing and threatening the security guard, which was caught on video.
“I’m going to precipitate an armed confrontation … Want me to say it again? I’m going to force an armed confrontation,” Pines said on the video.
