Lawyer for porn star Stormy Daniels says she was arrested

12 July 2018

Stormy Daniels, 39, was arrested in Columbus, Ohio, on July 11 while performing at Sirens strip club.

Avenatti told DailyMail.com Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, had been performing on stage when she was arrested. Avenatti alleged that her arrest was "a politically motivated set up".

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. In addition to restricting the hours in which such businesses can operate - nude dancing is prohibited after midnight, for instance - the law banned touching between patrons and dancers, whether they be nude or seminude. "There has to be a better objective for such resources". "We also expect that she will be charged with a misdemeanor for allowing "touching".

"This was a setup & politically motivated". He added: "It reeks of desperation. We will fight all bogus charges", Avenatti wrote.

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 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.

Although the law has been in effect for over a decade, a 2017 report from The Columbus Dispatch found that it is seldom enforced. Avenatti said in another tweet, appearing to suggest a set-up.

Earlier this week, Daniels performed in Washington at the Cloakroom, located about halfway between the Capitol and the White House, minutes before President Donald Trump announced his Supreme Court nomination.
