Porn star Stormy Daniels has been arrested in Columbus, Ohio while performing at a strip club on Wednesday, according to her attorney, Michael Avenatti.
“Just [received] 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,” attorney Michael Avenatti said in a tweet. “This was a setup & politically motivated.”
“It reeks of desperation,” Avenatti added. “We will fight all bogus charges. #Basta.”
Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, allegedly allowed a customer to “touch her while on stage in a non sexual manner,” Avenatti said in another tweet.
“Are you kidding me?,” Avenatti said. “They are devoting law enforcement resources to sting operations for this? There has to be higher priorities!!!”
Daniels was scheduled to perform at the Sirens strip club in Columbus on Wednesday and Thursday.
