Stormy Daniels Arrested; Lawyer Claims 'Set-Up'

STORMY-DANIELS

GETTY Daniels claims to have had an affair with the US president several years ago

Adult film star Stormy Daniels, who claims she had an affair with Donald Trump and is suing the president, was arrested during a performance at an OH strip club, her lawyer said early Thursday.

"Just [received] word that my client @StormyDaniels was arrested in Columbus Ohio [while] performing the same act she has performed across the nation at almost a hundred strip clubs", Daniels's lawyer Michael Avenatti tweeted Thursday morning. According to TMZ, the customer Daniels allowed to "motorboat" her turned out to be Columbus police officer Mary Prather.

"This is ridiculous that law enforcement resources were used to conduct this sting operation", he said. "There has to be higher priorities!" he continued.

Stormy Daniels can chalk this one up as a quickie - the charges from her Columbus, Ohio strip club arrest have already been dropped.

Cohen allegedly paid Daniels $130,000 to keep quiet about her sexual encounter with Mr. Trump.

The 39-year-old has piqued the nation's interest: More than 22 million people tuned in to see her speak on CBS news show "60 minutes" in May. She was released from jail around 6:30 a.m. Thursday morning, WSYX/WTTE reported. "We will fight all bogus charges", he tweeted, including a hashtag for the word "basta" which is Italian for "enough".

Upon arrest, Daniels was charged with three counts of "illegally operating sexually oriented business" and knowingly touching a patron, online court records show.

Police said Daniels made her way over to another detective and performed the same acts on him.

Under the 2007 Community Defense Act, dancers are prohibited from touching customers and vice versa, excluding immediate family members. A person who answered the phone at the club declined to comment.

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

In an official statement via Avenatti, Daniels announced that she is canceling her Thursday night performance. 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.

"This was a complete set up", Michael Avenatti, Daniels' attorney, tweeted. The White House has said Trump denies an affair happened.
