A lawyer representing Donald Trump’s campaign manger Corey Lewandowski resigned from his post as a U.S. attorney in 1996 after he allegedly bit a stripper at a Miami nightclub.
 
Kendall Coffey, who was appointed by then-President Bill Clinton in 1993, stepped down after the Justice Department concluded an investigation into the nightclub incident, according to reports from the time.
 
{mosads}Coffey, a founding partner of the law firm Coffey Burlington, then returned to private practice. 
 
He was involved in the high-profile custody battle of Elián González in 2000.
 
Lewandowski was charged in the alleged battery of former Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields, local police said Tuesday morning.
 
Coffey’s law firm is representing Trump in a suit he brought against Doral, Fla., residents living near one of his golf courses. Trump is accusing the residents of chopping down trees on the course’s property.
