Charges dropped after Stormy Daniels arrested at OH strip club

Stormy Daniels speaks during a ceremony in her honor in West Hollywood California

Adult film star Stormy Daniels was arrested Thursday and charged with breaking a controversial and little-known OH state law called the Community Defense Act, which prohibits adult dancers from touching patrons and vice versa.

Avenatti noted that the law applies to those who regularly perform at such clubs and there was no evidence that Daniels had ever appeared there before.

"I deeply apologise to my fans in Columbus", the statement read.

Early Thursday, Daniels' attorney, Michael Avenatti, tweeted that the arrest "was a setup & politically motivated".

Columbus police said Daniels' arrest wasn't a first. She is scheduled to appear in court on Friday morning.

Daniels' attorney, Michael Avenatti, tweeted the announcement Thursday afternoon.

Avenatti also took to Twitter to blast the arrest. According to police docs, Stormy put both hands on Officer Mary Praither's butt and breasts, and then put her breasts in the officer's face. When they subsequently approached her, she allegedly did the same to two of the detectives, while reportedly touching the third officer as detailed above.

She was heard describing her son as "very relaxed and peaceful", telling the archbishop with a smile: "I hope he stays like this". Britain's Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge holds Britain's Prince Louis of Cambridge on their arrival for his christening service.

She posted bail of about $6000 (A$8100) dollars and was released. A person who answered the phone at the strip club declined to comment.

Avenatti continued to call the incident a "ridiculous" and "absurd use of law enforcement resources". He vowed to fight the "bogus charges", even suggesting there are "higher priorities" at stake for the police.

Avenatti said Daniels, whose legal name is Stephanie Clifford, was arrested while "performing the same act she has performed across the nation at almost a hundred strip clubs". "It reeks of desperation", his tweet said. "We also expect that she will be charged with a misdemeanor for allowing "touching". Columbus police have made numerous arrests utilizing this law.

Just rcvd word that my client @StormyDaniels was arrested in Columbus Ohio whole performing the same act she has performed across the nation at almost a hundred strip clubs. The White House has said Trump denies an affair happened.

Daniels claimed she had an affair with Trump in 2006 and was paid off by Trump's lawyer in October 2016, weeks before the presidential election, not to talk about it. Trump has denied having an affair. The payment might have violated campaign finance laws.

Earlier this week, Daniels performed in Washington minutes before President Donald Trump announced his Supreme Court nomination.

The Columbus Dispatch reported past year that the 2007 law, introduced by a conservative religious group, was seldom enforced. "And she said yes". "She was putting on a show".
