Linked porn actress faces misdemeanor charges in Ohio

Adult film star Stormy Daniels, who allegedly had an affair with Trump and is now in a legal battle with him, was arrested at a strip club in OH early Thursday morning.

The lawyer for the porn star who is embroiled in a legal battle with President Trump claims her arrest was a "politically motivated sting".

"It reeks of desperation", Avenatti tweeted.

"We will vehemently contest all charges", he wrote.

ABC News reached out to Avenatti who declined to elaborate beyond his tweets.

In a telephone interview with New York Times, Avenatti said that the charges "stem from an allegation that while performing, she engaged in touching with customers who turned out to be undercover vice officers".

Daniels was topless when she "knowingly" touched a female Columbus police officer's buttocks, placed her hands on the officer's breast and then put her chest in the officer's face while "on the premise of a sexually oriented business", according to documents from the Franklin County Municipal Court obtained by WBNS.

OH passed a law in 2007 which prohibits patrons touching performers at a sexually-oriented business anywhere on the premises or in the parking lot, or a performer touching a patron.

Her lawyer said he expected her to be released on bail soon. She also alleges she was threatened to stay quiet about the affair. She shoved each of their faces between her breasts, court documents said. He said Thursday afternoon in a tweet he was pleased prosecutors dropped the charges and thanked them for their professionalism.

A prosecutor's memo provided by Avenatti said an OH illegal touching law cannot be enforced because Daniels has only appeared once at the Columbus club. He vowed to fight the "bogus charges", even suggesting there are "higher priorities" at stake for the police.

The state of OH moved to dismiss the case because it did "not have probable cause to proceed on any of the three charges set forth in the complaints", according to scanned court documents that Avenatti posted to social media. She was charged with three misdemeanor sex-offenses.

'A customer touched her in a non-sexual manner and she was subsequently arrested for allowing the customer to touch her in a non-sexual manner, ' he said.

The case also revolves around Michael Cohen, Trump's former lawyer who is under investigation for a range of financial matters, including a payment to Daniels that was apparently made right before the 2016 election.
