Lawyer for porn star Stormy Daniels says she was arrested

Stormy Daniels speaks during a ceremony in her honor in West Hollywood California

Stormy Daniels arrested at Ohio strip club, lawyer says

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".

As you can see, Avenatti thinks the charges are politically motivated.

Daniels, who was semi-nude, allegedly touched some of the patrons' breasts and allowed them to touch her, according to charging documents obtained by ABC affiliate WSYX.

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.

She is scheduled to appear in court for an arraignment on Friday.

He initially said he used his own money to pay Daniels and was not reimbursed by Trump.

Avenatti went on. "This was a complete set up.it's absurd that law enforcement resources are being spent to conduct a sting operation". "There has to be a better objective for such resources".

Additionally, at some time in the near future, the Canadian pipeline problem will be fixed and the supply disruption over. However, Iran exports might squeeze further if United States takes more aggressive stance on sanctions, they said.

A Columbus police spokeswoman didn't immediately respond to a message seeking comment. A person who answered the phone at the strip club declined to comment.

Ms Daniels says she was paid $130,000 (£98,000) shortly before the 2016 presidential election to keep quiet about her alleged sexual encounter with Mr Trump.

The lawyer also took to Twitter early Thursday morning, calling the arrest a "a setup & politically motivated". "It reeks of desperation", his tweet said. "We will fight all bogus charges", Avenatti said on Twitter.

The law, The Community Defense Act, prohibits adult entertainment - defined as nude or topless dancing - between midnight and 6am.

The article quoted the Franklin County Sheriff's office as saying in the decade since the law was enacted, it had never had "any complaints or reasons to apply" it. "#SetUp #Basta", Avenatti said in a second tweet.

Earlier this week, Daniels performed in Washington minutes before President Donald Trump announced his Supreme Court nomination. Trump, who was married at the time of the alleged affair, has disputed her claims.

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.
