Lawyer for porn star Stormy Daniels says she was arrested

Lawyer for porn star Stormy Daniels says she was arrested

Shortly after they were filed, charges were dismissed against porn actress Stormy Daniels, known for suing President Donald Trump, who was arrested at a Columbus, Ohio strip club.

Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, was accused of touching three customers who were undercover vice detectives in the early-morning incident, police in the OH capital Columbus said in a statement.

After the undercover investigators witnessed Clifford touching strip club patrons, they approached the stage where Clifford was performing, and Clifford made her way toward them - apparently not realizing that they were undercover officers - and treated them much in the same manner as she had previous patrons.

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

The patron is not believed to have been detained. Avenatti wrote that Daniels would no longer be performing at Sirens on Thursday, "but is looking for another club in the area". Daniels was accused of grabbing a female detective's head and forcing the officer's face between her breasts.

According to a Thursday Columbus Police Department news release, Clifford's arrest Wednesday night reportedly stemmed from an ongoing investigation into human trafficking and prostitution.

A fourth officer, who was not touched, called for assistance to arrest Daniels and two others: Miranda Panda, of Marion, and Brittany Walters, of Pickerington.

Her attorney said they will be opposing all charges.

For the time being, Daniels has said she will plead not guilty. He later said Daniels is expected to be released on bail and charged with a misdemeanor for allowing touching. It reeks of desperation.

He added, "They are devoting law enforcement resources to sting operations for this?" Apparently the "no touching" by customers rule only applies to regular nightly strip club workers in Columbus and not featured guests, which Stormy was.

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

Daniels became a household name earlier this year after she claimed she had sex with Trump in 2006.

She wants the non-disclosure agreement thrown out on the grounds that it is not valid because Trump never signed it.

In February, Cohen, the longtime personal lawyer for Trump admitted he paid US$130,000 (NZ$177,500) to the adult-film star, after previously dismissing stories about the payment.
