Stormy Daniels Arrested While Performing in Strip Club

Stormy Daniels' lawyer said they will"vehemently contest all charges

Stormy Daniels has been arrested in OH while performing a strip show at Sirens Gentleman's Club in Columbus.

Daniels' lawyer Michael Avenatti had earlier thanked prosecutors but ripped Columbus police for the "set up" that he called an "absurd use of law enforcement resources".

Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, was set for arraignment on Friday (Saturday NZT) on three misdemeanour counts of touching a patron at a "sexually oriented" business in violation of an OH strip club law.

Police say two other women were arrested along with Daniels early Wednesday.

While Daniels was performing on Wednesday night (Thursday NZT) at Sirens, a strip club in Columbus, some patrons touched her in a "non-sexual" way, her lawyer, Michael Avenatti, told The Associated Press.

"We also expect that she will be charged with a misdemeanor for allowing 'touching.' We will vehemently contest all charges", he wrote online.

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.

A police charge sheet tweeted by a CBS News reporter says Ms Daniels touched a police officer posing as a patron "in a specified anatomical area".

She canceled a Thursday night performance in Columbus. (By their own admission, the cops approached the stage after Daniels had started dancing and touched another patron, putting them in position to be touched by her.) More importantly, this particular law is nearly never enforced: The county sheriff told the Columbus Dispatch that, dating back to 2007, the number of charges filed under it is exactly ...

According to Avenatti, two officers went on stage and "asked her if they could place their face in between her breasts while she was performing on stage".

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

"My office was not involved in this sting operation, so any additional questions about it must be directed to the Columbus Division of Police", Klein said.

Daniels' lawyer, Michael Avenatti, told MSNBC his client has performed the same act hundreds of times without incident.

Daniels has been embroiled in a legal controversy with Trump over their alleged 2006 encounter, which he has repeatedly denied. Trump has said he personally reimbursed Cohen for that payment.
