Stormy Daniels Arrested While Dancing at Club

Stormy Daniels Arrested While Dancing at Club

CNBC's Rosenfeld also added, "Avenatti told NBC News that he was of the understanding that there were multiple undercover vice officers in the club during Daniels' show".

Stormy Daniels looked less than pleased in her mugshot after she was booked for allegedly grabbing an undercover cop's backside at a strip club overnight. What in the world would she have done that could be construed as illegal??

The 39-year-old was booked on a charge that outlaws touching between patrons and performers at sexually-oriented businesses.

"We expect her to be released on bail shortly".

There's still some confusion about what exactly happened inside the Sirens Gentleman's Club in Columbus, Ohio last night.

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.

Video from local station 10TV showed Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, being marched into Jackson Pike Correctional Facility around 4.30am. Reached by The Washington Post early Thursday, a representative for Sirens strip club refused to comment.

Avenatti continued to call the incident a "ridiculous" and "absurd use of law enforcement resources".

OH passed a law in 2007 which prohibits patrons touching performers at a sexually-oriented business anywhere on the premises or in the parking lot, or a performer touching a patron.

According to a copy of Clifford's charging documents, however - obtained by WBNS-TV - Clifford stands accused of "touching a "specified anatomical area" of female and male officers posing as patrons, and also touched them with her own 'specified anatomical area'".

Daniels' lawyer, Michael Avenatti, vowed to fight the "bogus charges" of what he is calling a "setup" that was "politically motivated". This was a setup & politically motivated. It reeks of desperation. "We will fight all bogus charges", he tweeted, including a hashtag for the word "basta" which is Italian for "enough".

In an official statement via Avenatti, Daniels announced that she is canceling her Thursday night performance. Trump has denied any sexual relationship with Daniels.

The Ohio strip club law prohibiting the touching of dancers, the Community Defense Act, was proposed by a Cincinnati-based conservative religious organization and approved in 2007.

The Franklin County Sheriff's Office later confirmed that Daniels had been charged with three misdemeanor sex offenses.
