Stormy Daniels' lawyer says the porn actress has been arrested at an OH strip club and is accused of letting patrons touch her, which is a violation of a state law.
'A customer touched her in a non-sexual manner and she was subsequently arrested for allowing the customer to touch her in a non-sexual manner, ' he said. Avenatti alleged that her arrest was "a politically motivated set up". It reeks of desperation, ' he wrote.
Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, was in police custody early Thursday morning and was expected to face a misdemeanour charge, Avenatti said.
"This is ridiculous that law enforcement resources were used to conduct this sting operation", he said. "There has to be higher priorities!", he added. Trump has denied the affair happened.
When reached by CNN, Avenatti confirmed that the information he tweeted is accurate.
Daniels, who claims to have had sex with President Donald Trump in 2006 when he was married, is suing the president and his former personal lawyer Michael Cohen over a nondisclosure agreement she signed to keep quiet on the alleged affair.
We expect her to be released on bail shortly.
Stormy Daniels has been arrested in OH while performing a strip show at Sirens Gentleman's Club in Columbus.
According to a report by the Columbus Dispatch last fall, instances of violations of the law are rare, with the local Franklin County Sheriff's Office telling the paper at the time that it had never been cited within their jurisdiction.
