  • Stormy Daniels' lawyer tweeted early Thursday that she was arrested while performing at a Columbus strip club

Porn actress Stormy Daniels' arrest at an OH strip club on Wednesday night won't impact her scheduled appearance in New Jersey next month, her lawyer said early Thursday.

Adult-film actress Stormy Daniels was arrested in Columbus, Ohio Wednesday night after allegedly "fondling" patrons and police officers during a performance at a strip club.

"It was an absurd use of law enforcement resources", Avenatti said.

"This was a setup & politically motivated".

Ms Daniels became embroiled in a row with President Donald Trump after saying she had slept with him in 2006, an allegation which he denies.

Daniels, who was semi-nude, allegedly touched some of the patrons' breasts and allowed them to touch her, according to charging documents obtained by ABC affiliate WSYX.

The lawyer for Stormy Daniels says the porn actress will plead not guilty to charges of allowing patrons to touch her after being arrested at an OH strip club.

The 39-year-old, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, has piqued the nation's interest: More than 22 million Americans tuned in to see her speak on 60 Minutes in May. "We also expect that she will be charged with a misdemeanor for allowing "touching".




"It reeks of desperation", Avenatti tweeted.

Early Thursday she remained in custody awaiting a determination of bail, Avenatti said. "We will fight all bogus charges", Avenatti said.

A Columbus police spokeswoman did not immediately respond to requests for comment on the arrest.

She was charged under an OH law that makes it illegal for "an employee who regularly appears nude or seminude" to touch non-family members "on the premises of a sexually oriented business". "There has to be higher priorities", Avenatti wrote on Twitter.

Her lawyer, Michael Avenatti, concedes the patrons did indeed touch his client but in a "non-sexual way".

A person who answered the phone at Sirens declined to comment.

Through White House officials, Trump has denied the affair, although Cohen has admitted paying Daniels $130,000 as part of the agreement. Trump has said he personally reimbursed Cohen for that payment.
