Stormy Daniels Arrested for Allowing Touching at Strip Club

Stormy Daniels Arrested for Allowing Touching at Strip Club

In what her lawyer dubbed a "politically motivated" set-up, Daniels was arrested without incident at the Sirens club in Columbus, Ohio after officers accused her of knowingly touching club patrons "in a specified anatomical area".

The lawyer also took to Twitter early Thursday morning, calling the arrest a "a setup & politically motivated".

'We will fight all bogus charges'. Under Ohio law, a dancer at a sexually oriented business is barred from touching anyone but a family member when nude or semi-nude.

The documents did not indicate if the officers were in plain clothes or in uniform at the time.

Columbus police charged Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, with three misdemeanor counts of touching a patron at a "sexually oriented" business in violation of an OH strip club law, according to online court records. Daniels was released on $6,000 bond, but has been hit with three charges related to an obscure 2007 law that was spearheaded by conservatives and meant to restrict sexual activity and limit strip club operating hours. "Are you kidding me?" he wrote.

Stormy Daniels is pictured during an interview with Anderson Cooper about her alleged affair with Donald Trump.

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


Dailymail.com reached out to Sirens who refused to comment.

"We will vehemently contest all charges", he said.

Avenatti issued a statement on her behalf saying that as a result, her performance at the jiggle joint Thursday night would be canceled.

Daniels made headlines worldwide over revelations of an alleged affair with Trump in 2006 - and for the $130,000 she said she received from his attorney in 2016 in exchange for her silence. The payment might have violated campaign finance laws.

Daniels has said she had sex with Trump in 2006 and that Trump's personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, paid her $130,000 to keep the encounter secret shortly before the presidential election.

A defamation lawsuit was also filed in April, alleging the President tried to tarnish her reputation and credibility by dismissing her claim a man threatened her in 2011, when she was ready to go public about her alleged affair with Trump.
