Stormy Daniels' Ohio Strip Club Charges Dismissed

Stormy Daniels' Ohio Strip Club Charges Dismissed

Stormy Daniels, the adult film star who alleges Trump's lawyer paid her $130,000 to keep quiet about an affair she had with the President in 2006, was arrested in OH on Wednesday night, TMZ reports.

According to the police report, Avenatti claims there were three undercover officers at the venue where Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, was performing and that as soon as Daniels was touched by a customer they immediately got up to arrest her.

Avenatti tweeted just before 7 a.m. Thursday that Daniels would "issue a plea of "Not Guilty" to the charges.

Daniels was transported to jail and later released on bail. She is scheduled to appear in court on Friday morning. They say two other strippers, who were also arrested, were the first offenders - with one of them motorboating and groping Officer Praither.

Stormy's lawyer, Michael Avenatti, said the incident reeked of a sting operation.

Stormy Daniels, the porn star at the center of a political storm involving President Trump, has been arrested, her lawyer says. We will fight all bogus charges.

Ohio's Community Defense Act prohibits touching a nude or semi-nude dancer in a club, besides members of the dancer's immediate family. A violation is a misdemeanor.

Trump Administration Readies Tariffs On $200 Billion Of Chinese Imports
The Trump administration announced plans to levy tariffs on another $ 200 billion of Chinese goods as trade tensions escalate. The Chinese government, however, called it "totally unacceptable" and said it would take unspecified countermeasures.

"Are you kidding me?" he asked.

"It was an absurd use of law enforcement resources", Avenatti said. "There has to be higher priorities", he wrote.

Avenatti told MSNBC Thursday that the undercover officers in the strip club were female but shook off allegations that any of the behavior Daniels engaged in was "inappropriate".

Daniels was arrested by Columbus Police and charged with three counts of 'Illegally Operating Sexually Oriented Business - Employee Knowingly Touch Any Patron, ' according to online court records. "I deeply apologize to my fans in Columbus", she said. A person who answered the phone at the club declined to comment.

In May, Trump had admitted to knowing about his attorney paying $1,30,000 to Clifford, before the 2016 presidential elections.

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. Trump has said he personally reimbursed Cohen for that payment.

The Columbus Dispatch reported a year ago that the 2007 law, introduced by a conservative religious group, was seldom enforced. After Stormy's performance, she and the other 2 were arrested at the same time.
