Stormy Daniels Arrested for Allowing Touching at Strip Club

Adult-film actress Stephanie Clifford also known as Stormy Daniels arrested in Columbus Ohio

Avenatti later posted an official statement from Daniels in which she announced she would "unfortunately be unable to go forward" with her scheduled Thursday performance in Ohio.

Police arrested adult film actress Stormy Daniels - real name Stephanie Clifford - on Wednesday night at a Columbus, Ohio, strip club. According to the law, only family members can touch a nude or semi-nude dancer.

Daniels was released on bail early Thursday morning, and is due back in court Friday morning for an arraignment. She's suing Trump and his former longtime personal attorney, Michael Cohen, and seeking to invalidate a nondisclosure agreement that she signed days before the 2016 presidential election.

"This is ridiculous that law enforcement resources were used to conduct this sting operation", he said.

Avenatti had claimed the arrest was a politically motivated "set up" and also blasted the police's explanation.

Avenatti said it was "ridiculous" that Columbus Police forced Daniels on a perp walk for the cameras at Jackson Pike Correctional Facility and police could instead focus on Columbus's skyrocketing murder rate.

There were a few weeks earlier this year when it felt like Stormy Daniels and her lawyer had a monopoly on the news cycle.

The charges against Oakley were later cleared as part of an agreement, which included banning him from the arena for a year. In a statement to ESPN , Oakley's attorney said "This is not a significant matter and we expect it to be resolved quickly".

The lawyer for the porn star who is embroiled in a legal battle with President Trump claims her arrest was a "politically motivated sting".

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

Stormy Daniels says in a statement that, as a result of her arrest at a Columbus, Ohio, strip club, she will not perform Thursday night.

Avenatti told The Washington Post that undercover officers later approached Daniels and told her she would be arrested.

Daniels was arrested at a club in Columbus, Ohio while performing an act she has done at almost 100 strip clubs across America, Michael Avenatti wrote on Twitter. "We will fight all bogus charges".

"The officers also observed Ms. Clifford fondling the breasts of female patrons", Franklin County Municipal Court records show.

A Columbus police spokeswoman didn't immediately respond to USA TODAY's request for comment. The president has denied an affair occurred.
