Stormy Daniels: charges over strip club performance in OH dropped, lawyer says

Share

Daniels, 39, was apprehended without incident during a performance late Wednesday at the Sirens club in Columbus, Ohio after officers accused her of touching patrons "in a specified anatomical area".

Charges were dropped against adult film star Stormy Daniels on Thursday after an OH strip club arrest that her lawyer slammed as a "politically motivated" setup against the woman suing President Donald Trump.

An Ohio law prohibits anyone who isn't a family member to touch a nude or semi-nude dancer.

He says he's confident that she'll be cleared of all charges.

According to CNN, detectives present at the Sirens Gentlemen's Club at 6190 Cleveland Ave witnessed Daniels remove her top and shove patrons' faces into her chest.

Their run to the semi-final deserves enormous credit and nobody should have any complaints, but nonetheless they blew this game. The game turned in overtime on two plays - one on which a defender was alert, the other on which a defender was caught napping.

Then-Governor Ted Strickland, a Democrat, allowed the law to take effect without his signature despite a Statehouse debate that included young women in pink "Dancers for Democracy" shirts opposing the effort, the Columbus Dispatch reported.

Through White House officials, Trump has denied the affair with Daniels, although Cohen has admitted paying her $130,000 as part of the agreement.

Daniels was transported to jail and is expected to be charged with a misdemeanor.

Hours later, the charges were dropped due to lack of "probable cause", according to court documents.

Prosecutors say the "touching" statute only applies to strippers who "regularly appear" at the establishment. Avenatti told MSNBC Thursday that the undercover officers in the strip club were female but shook off allegations that any of the behavior Daniels engaged in was "inappropriate".

Imports by state refiners during the period more than doubled to about 413,400 bpd from 191,700 bpd, the data showed. The Iranian oil ministry said last week that it exported 2.2 million barrels per day of crude oil in June.

Avenatti posted on Twitter a statement by Daniels that said she apologized to her fans in Columbus, but she would not perform her previously scheduled Thursday night show. "There has to be higher priorities".

"This was a complete set up", he said. "Are you kidding me?" "I think that this is one of the poorest uses of law enforcement resources I believe I have ever heard of in my lifetime".

Columbus police did not confirm Daniels' arrest to Fox News. He was married to Melania Trump at the time and has denied Daniel's claim.

Ms Daniels says she was paid $130,000 (£98,000) shortly before the 2016 presidential election to keep quiet about her alleged sexual encounter with Mr Trump.
