Stormy Daniels, the adult film actress who has made headlines for an alleged affair with Donald Trump, was arrested in Columbus, Ohio, according to her attorney.
Michael Avenatti, who has represented Daniels, delivered the message in a Twitter post in the earlier hours of Thursday ET. In that tweet, the attorney claimed the arrest was politically motivated, and said "it reeks of desperation."
Michael Avenatti tweet: 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
An NBC affiliate confirmed the arrest early Thursday morning with information from the Franklin County Ohio Sheriff's Office. Daniels was taken to the correctional facility at Jackson Pike and has reportedly been charged with misdemeanor sex offenses. Her next court date is Friday, July 13.
In subsequent tweets, Avenatti suggested Daniels was hit with three misdemeanor charges, and vowed that she will plead not guilty to all of them. "We will vehemently contest" the charges, he said.
In the meantime, however, the arrest forced Daniels to cancel a second performance scheduled for Thursday night in Columbus, according to a statement tweeted out by Avenatti.
Avenatti said Daniels had been arrested for "allegedly allowing a customer to touch her while on stage in a non sexual manner."
Avenatti tweet: 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
The attorney added in a follow-up post that he expected the adult film actress to be released on bail "shortly" and that she would be charged "with a misdemeanor for allowing 'touching.'"
Jeff Zeleny tweet
Avenatti told NBC News that he was of the understanding that there were multiple undercover vice officers in the club during Daniels' show. After the customer touched her, according to the attorney, those officers got up and arrested the performer on the spot.
Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, claims she had sex with Trump in 2006, while he was married to Melania Trump.
In October 2016, on the eve of the presidential election, Michael Cohen, then Trump's personal attorney, used a shell company he had set up to pay Daniels $130,000 in exchange for her signing a nondisclosure agreement.
Steven Portnoy tweet
Daniels has said the agreement barred her from speaking publicly about her tryst with Trump.
In early January this year, The Wall Street Journal broke the news about that deal arranged by the lawyers.
Apparently, forcing a patron to motorboat you is still illegal in Ohio.
WUT? Somebody touched a stripper? Time for a “#metoo” for stormy huh?
I bet there was...
That poor woman has been exploited mercilessly. Soon she will reach the end of the decadent road and will be tossed on the junk heap.
Just a suggestion....but couldn’t we all just go and start using her real name: Stephanie Clifford? I think if we did this...the whole hype would go away in seven days.
Other way around...................
Yeah, right. A politically motivated arrest in a state where the Republican Governor boycotted the Republican National Convention held in his own state as a protest to Trump.
Avenatti says it “reeks of desperation.” well, since their whole political act is fading away, whose desperation would that be? I’d say it’s Avenatti who is desperate.
In a bar............
Thousands of hookers and strippers get arrested every day. Why is she so special?
Welcome to your new world.
I have heard these strip joints have no touch rules. But, I thought the guy who gets carried away would be the one who gets arrested, not the girl. I wonder if there’s more to the story? She allowed his touch and that’s why she got arrested? This is a weird story.
I also thought these places have bouncers to handle things like this, and am surprised that police were waiting to pounce .
“”Avenatti told NBC News that he was of the understanding that there were multiple undercover vice officers in the club during Daniels’ show. “
I bet there was... “
And from all the neighboring counties too...in “private” booths!
I thought the most important line in the article was who has represented....
That implies that Avenatti is not presently representing her. That is the actual news.
Spermy Daniels, the stripper and prostitute, was arrested for inappropriateness? LOL!!
A set-up alright, by the oligarchy to get the Trump Daniels faux scandal back in the news. The democrat party is of their father the devil. Any act is justified if it works to empower their father’s agenda.
