Charges against Stormy Daniels dropped after strip club arrest

Charges against Stormy Daniels dropped after strip club arrest

Stormy Daniels was arrested Wednesday night over an incident at a strip club.

Avenatti said Daniels was arrested while "performing the same act she has performed across the nation at almost a hundred strip clubs". OH law prohibits anyone who isn't a family member from touching 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.

Daniels is suing Trump and his former personal lawyer Michael Cohen to nullify a 2016 non-disclosure agreement preventing her from speaking out about the affair she says she had with Trump in 2006.

"This is ridiculous that law enforcement resources were used to conduct this sting operation", he said. He went on to allege it was a politically motivated arrest.

Police said Daniels made her way over to another detective and performed the same acts on him.

Michael Avenatti represents Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford. The president had claimed that the payment to Clifford - who says she had an affair with Trump - had nothing to do with his election campaign.

Daniels' attorney, Michael Avenatti, took to Twitter early Thursday claiming the arrest at Columbus, Ohio, was "politically motivated" and "reeks of desperation".

Avenatti posted on Twitter on Thursday morning that Daniels will plead not guilty to three misdemeanour charges.

Avenatti told that Daniels had been performing on stage when she was arrested. Avenatti promised to "vehemently contest all charges".

She is trying to free herself from a non-disclosure agreement signed before the election, and suing over a "defamatory" tweet by the U.S. president earlier this year.

Trump has denied any sexual relationship with Daniels. After taking off her top, Daniels "began forcing the faces of the patrons into her chest and using her bare breasts to smack the patrons".

A Columbus police spokeswoman did not immediately respond to requests for comment on the arrest.

Daniels filed lawsuits against both Cohen and Trump for defamation.

Trump admitted in May that he reimbursed Cohen for the hush money.
