Stormy Daniels has been arrested at a strip club

Michael Avenatti Says Stormy Daniels Was Arrested While Performing at a Strip Club: ‘This Was a Setup’

Franklin County Municipal Court records reportedly show that she was released Thursday morning after posting a $6,054 bail.

Early Thursday, Daniels' attorney, Michael Avenatti, tweeted that the arrest "was a setup & politically motivated".

According to an article published past year in The Columbus Dispatch, the law, which also restricts the hours of operation for strip clubs and adult book stores, is rarely, if ever, enforced.

"Are you kidding me?"

"This is ridiculous that law enforcement resources were used to conduct this sting operation", he said. There has to be higher priorities!

Under Ohio law, an employee who regularly appears nude or seminude is prohibited from touching patrons on the premises of a sexually oriented business - unless it's a family member.

An arrest affidavit said Daniels allegedly inappropriately touched male and female undercover police officers after they threw cash in her direction.

'This was a setup and politically motivated.

"It reeks of desperation. We will fight all bogus charges", Avenatti said on Twitter.

Avenatti said Daniels was arrested during a sting operation.

When officers witnessed those activities, three detectives approached the stage.

The Sirens venue tweeted last month to say Ms Daniels would make two "exclusive appearances" there on the nights of 11 and 12 July. He says the pair will contest all charges.

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

Adult film star Stormy Daniels was arrested Thursday and charged with breaking a controversial and little-known OH state law called the Community Defense Act, which prohibits adult dancers from touching patrons and vice versa.

But according to an arrest report cited by Columbus news station WBNS, police accuse Daniels of touching "a specified anatomical area" of individuals present at the performance, including police officers.

The adult film actress, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, was performing on Wednesday night at Sirens club, in the city of Columbus. A person who answered the phone at the club declined to comment. The White House has said Trump denies an affair happened.

Trump's longtime former personal attorney, Michael Cohen, arranged a nondisclosure agreement shortly before the 2016 presidential election and paid Daniels $130,000 to keep quiet about the alleged sexual encounter.
