Adult film star Stormy Daniels arrested in Ohio strip club "setup" - lawyer


"Just received [sic] word that my client Stormy Daniels was arrested in Columbus Ohio while [sic] performing the same act she has performed across the nation at almost a hundred strip clubs", Avenatti tweeted.

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". He was married to Melania Trump at the time and has denied Daniel's claim.

Michael Avenatti tells The Associated Press today that Daniels was taken into custody during a show in Columbus, Ohio.

"This was a setup & politically motivated". It reeks of desperation, ' he wrote. "We will fight all bogus charges", Avenatti said on Twitter. He said she was arrested inside the club.

Two of the boys had suspected lung infections but the four boys from the first group rescued were all walking around their beds. He posted photos of the cave interior and a video showing people working their way through chest-high water.

"It's absurd that law enforcement resources are being spent to conduct a sting operation related to customers touching performers in a strip club in a non-sexual manner".

Daniels was arrested at a club in Columbus while performing an act she has done at almost 100 strip clubs across the US, Michael Avenatti wrote on Twitter.

Under Ohio law, an employee who regularly appears nude or seminude on the premises of a sexually-oriented business is not allowed to touch a patron or anyone who's not a family member while nude or seminude at that business.

Avenatti says Daniels has received a misdemeanor and will be "released shortly". She's suing Trump and his former longtime personal attorney, Michael Cohen, and seeking to invalidate a nondisclosure agreement that she signed days before the 2016 presidential election.
