Nicholas' attorney, David Chesnoff, says his team is doing its own investigation.

Nicholas was arrested along with a woman, identified as Ashley Fargo. Court records show they have been released on their own recognizance.

Nicholas co-founded Broadcom in the '90s and left the company in 2003. Forbes reports he is worth $3.1 billion.

Recently, he has been bankrolling ballot measures in the U.S. that aim to guarantee certain rights to crime victims.
