UPDATE: Bloomberg is now reporting that the three misdemeanor sex offenses have been dropped.
CORRECTION: An earlier version of this story had incorrectly placed the Franklin County Sheriff's Office in Cleveland. It is in Columbus, Ohio.
Stormy Daniels was arrested on Wednesday on three accounts of misdemeanor sex offenses by the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office in Columbus, Ohio, according the New York Times.
Daniels -- the 39-year-old porn actress who is suing President Trump for defamation even though she’s fine at doing it to herself -- was working at a gentlemen's club called Sirens Gentlemen’s Club Wednesday night.
According to TMZ, Stormy put both her hands on chest and rear of an undercover female police officer.
She was arrested for groping the officer as well as allegedly allowing patrons to touch her while on stage which is a violation of state law.
She's also being accused of pressing the faces of patrons into her breasts including the undercover police officer.
In a phone interview, Daniels’ attorney, Michael Avenatti, said he believes the charges “stem from an allegation that while performing, she engaged in touching with customers who turned out to be undercover vice officers.”
He wrote on Twitter that the arrest "was a setup & politically motivated," and that Daniels was arrested for "performing the same act she has performed across the nation at nearly a hundred strip clubs."
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— Michael Avenatti (@MichaelAvenatti) July 12, 2018
She was arrested for allegedly allowing a customer to touch her while on stage in a non sexual manner! Are you kidding me? They are devoting law enforcement resources to sting operations for this? There has to be higher priorities!!! #SetUp #Basta— Michael Avenatti (@MichaelAvenatti) July 12, 2018
NBC News reported that Stormy Daniels was in violation of the Community Defense Act, a law in Ohio prohibiting anyone from physically touching a nude or semi-nude dancer unless they are relatives.
"The officers also observed Ms. Clifford fondling the breasts of female patrons,” reads an affidavit obtained by CNN’s affiliate WSYX.
Avenatti says that Daniels plans to plead not guilty to all three charges. She has been released from custody after posting $6,054 cash bail. Her arraignment is set for Friday.
