Lawyer for porn star Stormy Daniels says she was arrested

Adult-film actress Stephanie Clifford also known as Stormy Daniels arrested in Columbus Ohio

Adult-film actress Stephanie Clifford also known as Stormy Daniels arrested in Columbus Ohio

According to an article published a year ago in The Columbus Dispatch, the law, which also restricts the hours of operation for strip clubs and adult book stores, is rarely, if ever, enforced.

A woman who answered the phone at the strip club declined to comment on whether Daniels had been arrested or on whether her performance was still scheduled. It reeks of desperation.

Her attorney said Daniels is accused of quote "allowing a customer to touch her while on stage in a non-sexual manner".

He later tweeted that he expected Daniels to be released on bail "shortly" and charged with a misdemeanour for "touching".

A lawyer for the star, who is locked in a court battle with US President Donald Trump over their alleged affair, said the arrest was "politically motivated".

"This was a setup & politically motivated. We will fight all bogus charges", Avenatti wrote.

As a strong proponent of diplomacy, I believe a meeting between President Trump and President Putin could be a productive one . My task is to try to minimise the negative impact on NATO", Stoltenberg told a forum in the margins of the summit.


The AP reports that a Columbus police spokeswoman didn't immediately respond to a message seeking comment.

He says he's confident that she'll be cleared of all charges.

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

Daniels has been embroiled in a lawsuit with the President since early March, to get out of a non-disclosure agreement relating to an alleged affair she had with him in 2006. Avenatti said in another tweet, appearing to suggest a set-up. But according to a Columbus Dispatch article published in September, 2017, the law has rarely been used.

The adult film actress, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, was performing on Wednesday night at Sirens club, in the city of Columbus.
