NBC News reports:
Michael Cohen, the former personal lawyer for President Donald Trump, was taken into custody by U.S. Marshals on the heels of a newspaper photo showing him eating at a Manhattan restaurant weeks after being released from prison into home confinement.
Cohen was taken to the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn, a federal jail.
His attorney told NBC News that his detention could be connected to a photo of him that appeared on the front page of The New York Post eating outside of his Manhattan residence, where he was supposed to be under home confinement for the remainder of a three-year criminal sentence.
