  • Stormy Daniels arrested at Ohio strip club says Lawyer

The porn star's lawyer said the arrest "reeks of desperation", and said Daniels was performing the same routine she had done "at almost a hundred strip clubs" throughout the country.

WASHINGTON: Adult film star Stormy Daniels, locked in a court battle with US President Donald Trump over their alleged affair, was arrested Wednesday while performing at a strip club in what her lawyer described as a "politically motivated" setup.

He said that some patrons touched the 39-year-old in a "non-sexual way", but the police claims she violated state law, which prohibits anyone who is not a family member to touch a nude or semi-nude dancer.

Hours after her arrest, the charges were dropped, according to the Associated Press.

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. In May, Trump said Daniels was paid to stop "false and extortionist accusations" she made about a sexual encounter with him.

Online court records showed that three misdemeanor charges of illegally operating a sexually oriented business related to knowingly touching a patron were dismissed.

Saddened to hear the other 2 dancers arrested with me last night did not have their charges dropped.

How to Watch England vs. Croatia
England have not been in the semi-finals of the World Cup since 1990 when they lost on penalties to then West Germany. How are the English feeling? We have come back after 20 years to the semis and we deserve it.

The law refers to someone "who regularly appears nude or seminude" at a club.

Daniels was arrested Thursday morning after she was accused of squeezing patrons' and undercover police officers' faces between her bare breasts at Sirens Gentlemen's Club in Columbus. Columbus Police confirmed to the Columbus Dispatch the law is rarely enforced in the state of OH despite being on the books for the past 11 years.

Daniels was busted in Columbus and taken to police headquarters at about 4:30 a.m. "There has to be higher priorities", he wrote.

The charges against Stormy Daniels have been dismissed following her arrest in OH early Thursday morning.

"I am pleased to report that the charges against my client @stormydaniels have been dismissed in their entirety", Avenatti said on Twitter, thanking prosecutors for their "professionalism".

Daniels has sued the president and Cohen, seeking to nullify the nondisclosure agreement. The strip club where she reportedly performed, called Sirens, also declined to comment when asked about the matter. Trump has denied the affair happened.
