Stormy Daniels Arrested in Ohio Attorney Believe Its Politically Motivated
Adult film actress, Stormy Daniels was arrested in Ohio early on Thursday and faces three counts of illegally touching a patron at a sexually oriented business.
Her attorney, Michael Avenatti, tweeted that his client was taken into custody at a strip club in Columbus, “she was arrested for allegedly allowing a customer to touch her while on stage in a nonsexual manner! Are you kidding me?” Avenatti tweeted.
Under Ohio law, an employee who regularly appears nude or seminude on the premises of a sexually oriented business is not allowed to touch anyone who’s not a family member while nude or seminude at that business.
Just rcvd word that my client @StormyDaniels was arrested in Columbus Ohio whole performing the same act she has performed across the nation at nearly a hundred strip clubs. This was a setup & politically motivated. It reeks of desperation. We will fight all bogus charges. #Basta

Daniels made headlines worldwide for allegedly having an affair with Donald Trump in 2006 and for the $130,000 she says she received from his attorney in 2016 in exchange for her silence about the alleged sexual encounter and President Trump has denied the affair happened.
Daniels is suing Trump and his former personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, to be released from a nondisclosure agreement that she says she signed days before the 2016 presidential election to prevent her from publicly discussing the alleged affair.
