Adult film star Stormy Daniels arrested at OH strip club, attorney says

Her lawyer Michael Avenatti said on Thursday (Friday, NZ time) Daniels was taken into custody during a show in Columbus, Ohio.

Stormy Daniels, the woman who says she had an affair with US President Donald Trump, has been arrested at an OH strip club for letting patrons touch her in violation of state law.

"This was a setup & politically motivated. It reeks of desperation", his tweet said.

The lawyer, Michael Avenatti, said she would deny the charges.

ABC News reached out to Avenatti who declined to elaborate beyond his tweets.

Daniels was reportedly headlining a performance at the Sirens Gentlemen's Club in Columbus, Ohio.

It also outlaws touching a nude or semi-nude dancer or their clothing in or in the direct vicinity of the club - unless the person is a member of the dancer's immediate family.

'A customer touched her in a non-sexual manner and she was subsequently arrested for allowing the customer to touch her in a non-sexual manner, ' he said. She allegedly performed the same act with several officers who approached the stage and forced one officer's head into her bare chest.

He said she was arrested inside the club.

The AP reports that a Columbus police spokeswoman didn't immediately respond to a message seeking comment.

Stormy Daniels was arrested at an OH strip club early Thursday after allegedly violating an "obscure" state law, per CNN-though her lawyer claims it was a set-up.

"Are you kidding me?" They are devoting law enforcement resources to sting operations for this? There has to be higher priorities!

Daniels planned to be in Columbus Wednesday and Thursday as part of a nationwide tour, Avenatti said. "We expect her to be released on bail shortly".

Daniels, whose legal name is Stephanie Clifford, claims to have had a sexual encounter with Trump in 2006, which Trump has denied.

Mr Avenatti later said his client would plead not guilty to all three misdemeanour charges, and also posted a statement from Ms Daniels saying she would not be able to go ahead with tonight's show.

Daniels has been embroiled in a lawsuit with the President since early March, to get out of a non-disclosure agreement relating to an alleged affair she had with him in 2006.
