Stormy Daniels arrested after OH strip club patron touches her

United States President Donald Trump and adult film actress Stormy Daniels

Charges made against Stormy Daniels in her early morning arrest on Thursday were dismissed later in the afternoon, according to her lawyer Michael Avenatti. Video showed her being marched into jail at 4.30am after allegedly grabbing an undercover officer's backside at the Sirens Gentleman's Club in Columbus.

Her lawyer called the arrest "a setup" and "politically motivated". They say two other strippers, who were also arrested, were the first offenders - with one of them motorboating and groping Officer Praither.

Mr Avenatti tweeted that Ms Daniels, real name Stephanie Clifford, had been performing "the same act she has performed across the nation at almost 100 strip clubs". He vowed to fight the "bogus charges", even suggesting there are "higher priorities" at stake for the police.

OH law prohibits employees who regularly appear "nude or semi-nude on the premises of a sexually oriented business" from being touched by or touching club-goers, unless they are members of the dancer's immediate family.

The court papers said "no evidence" was provided that Daniels "appears or has appeared regularly at Sirens".

On Thursday afternoon, Daniels told Inside Edition's Steven Fabian that she is "abso-f***in-lutely" still performing later in the night. This was a setup & politically motivated.

That match spanned 11 hours and five minutes, with Isner eventually triumphing 70-68 in an astounding final set. John Isner and Kevin Anderson are on Centre Court, competing for a place in the Wimbledon final.

According to the report, Daniels held the faces of a female and male officer between her breast when they approached the stage.

Daniels was busted in Columbus and taken to police headquarters at about 4:30 a.m.

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

"As a result of what happened last night, I will unfortunately be unable to go forward with tonight's scheduled performance", Daniels said in a statement through Avenatti on Twitter.

Stormy Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, the porn film star who said she had an affair with Donald Trump before he became USA president, is shown in this booking photo released by Franklin County Sheriff's Office, in Columbus, Ohio, on July 12, 2018. In May, Trump said Daniels was paid to stop "false and extortionist accusations". He was married to Melania Trump at the time and has denied Daniel's claim. He later said Daniels is expected to be released on bail and charged with a misdemeanor for allowing touching.

Through White House officials, Mr Trump has denied the affair, although Mr Cohen has admitted paying Daniels as part of the agreement.
