Stormy Daniels Arrested While Performing in Strip Club

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

Ohio's state law prohibits anyone who isn't a family member from touching a nude or half nude dancer.

The law places a wide range of restrictions, including no naked dancing after midnight, limits on when dancers can touch patrons and which clubs with liquor licenses can continue to stay open despite featuring nude dancing.

Columbus police did not confirm Daniels' arrest to Fox News.

The incident means Daniels will not carry out further performances in the evening, she said, adding: "I deeply apologise to my fans in Columbus". Documents on the Franklin County Municipal Court website show that she will be arraigned Friday at 9 a.m. When officers witnessed those activities, three detectives approached the stage.

Avenatti also took to Twitter to blast the arrest. The report says Daniels fondled the buttocks and breasts of another officer. Daniels, Miranda Panda of Marion, Ohio, and Brittany Walters of Pickerington, Ohio, were each charged in the undercover operation. Daniels was accused of grabbing a female detective's head and forcing the officer's face between her breasts. "This was a setup & politically motivated".

Ms Daniels was arrested for allegedly letting a customer touch her on stage "in a non-sexual manner", her lawyer tweeted.

A prosecutor's memo provided by Avenatti said an OH illegal touching law cannot be enforced because Daniels has only appeared once at the Columbus club. "There has to be higher priorities", he wrote.

The adult film actor, who claims she had sex with Donald Trump, was performing at Sirens strip club in Columbus when she was touched in a "non-sexual" way, according to her lawyer, Michael Avenatti.

"This was a setup & politically motivated. It reeks of desperation", his tweet said. He also said that Daniels is briefly postponing her national tour and will plead not guilty to the charges against her.

The high-powered attorney claims the arrest was "part of a sting" based on a "puritan law" that says there is absolutely no touching in strip clubs in Columbus.

Just days before the 2016 election, Cohen paid Daniels $130,000 in exchange for her silence. The White House has said Trump denies an affair happened. Trump has said he personally reimbursed Cohen for that payment. If that space is violated by customers, they are generally escorted out.

Reporter Tino Ramos said she refused to comment when asked. After Stormy's performance, she and the other 2 were arrested at the same time. Avenatti said the officers present at the performance were in plain clothes.
