Stormy Daniels arrested in OH, lawyer says

Stormy Daniels speaks during a ceremony in her honor in West Hollywood California

"They are devoting law enforcement resources to sting operations for this?"

An Ohio strip club law prohibits clients from touching a nude or semi-nude dancer, unless the patron is a member of the dancer's immediate family.

A woman who answered the phone at the strip club declined to comment on whether Daniels had been arrested or on whether her performance was still scheduled.

Her attorney said Daniels is accused of quote "allowing a customer to touch her while on stage in a non-sexual manner".

The porn star's lawyer said the arrest "reeks of desperation", and said Daniels was performing the same routine she had done "at almost a hundred strip clubs" throughout the country. He intends to fight the charges.

Porn actress Stormy Daniels was arrested at an OH strip club and is accused of letting patrons touch her in violation of a state law, her attorney said early Thursday.

"This was a setup & politically motivated".

Avenatti expected her to be released on bail shortly and vowed to "vehemently contest all charges", he tweeted.

A Columbus police spokeswoman did not immediately respond to requests for confirmation of the arrest.

He says he's confident that she'll be cleared of all charges.

When reached by CNN, Avenatti confirmed that the information he tweeted is accurate.

Although the law has been in effect for over a decade, a 2017 report from The Columbus Dispatch found that it is seldom enforced.

Daniels made headlines worldwide for allegedly having an affair with Donald Trump in 2006 - and for the $130,000 she says she received from his attorney in 2016 in exchange for her silence about the alleged sexual encounter.
