Stormy Daniels Speaks Out After Getting Arrested at an Ohio Strip Club

Stormy Daniels' lawyer said they will

Avenatti tweeted early Thursday morning that he and Daniels "will vehemently contest all charges".

She also allegedly grabbed an undercover officer's face and pressed it between her breasts, CNN reports.

Adult-film actress Stephanie Clifford, also known as Stormy Daniels speaks outside US Federal Court with her lawyer Michael Avenatti (R) in New York, April 16, 2018.

Daniels' arraignment is scheduled for Friday at Ohio's Franklin County Municipal Court. Two other people were arrested at the club, but it is unclear who they were.

Daniels, real name Stephanie Clifford, is suing Trump and his former personal lawyer Michael Cohen to nullify a 2016 non-disclosure agreement preventing her from speaking out about an alleged affair she says she had with Trump in 2006. He vowed to fight the "bogus charges", even suggesting there are "higher priorities" at stake for the police. The Community Defense Act, a law in OH, prohibits anyone from touching a nude or semi-nude dancer.

Prosecutors say the "touching" statute only applies to strippers who "regularly appear" at the establishment.

After taking the stage at 11:30 p.m. CDT, Daniels allegedly "began forcing the faces of the patrons into her chest and using her bare breasts to smack the patrons".


Avenatti told The Post the arrest was a politically motivated "sting operation".

Klein said his office was not involved in what he called a "sting operation".

Murphy said it's possible police were "bypassing" Daniels' arrest if she'd committed a "bondable offense", meaning she could pay a bond and be released from jail until her case is decided.

Police in Ohio's capital city say the arrest of porn star Stormy Daniels was part of a long-term human trafficking investigation.

DailyMail.com have contacted the Columbus Police Department for comment.

Daniels has been on tour since last winter, appearing at strip clubs across the United States, and had been due to perform again at Sirens on Thursday night. Now, she has spoken out for the first time in a statement through her lawyer.

Since signing the agreement, Daniels has repeatedly denied having sexual relations with Trump, however she gave an interview to InTouch magazine in 2011 detailing their alleged affair.
