Stormy Daniels, the porn star who claims to have had an affair with President Donald Trump, was arrested late Wednesday while performing at a strip club in Columbus, Ohio, her lawyer told Fox News.

Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, has said she had sex with Trump in 2006 when he was married, which Trump has denied. She’s suing Trump and his former longtime personal lawyer and fixer Michael Cohen and seeking to invalidate a nondisclosure agreement that she signed days before the 2016 presidential election.

Daniels’ lawyer, Michael Avenatti, wrote in a follow-up tweet that she was arrested for “allegedly allowing a customer to touch her while on stage in a non sexual manner.”

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

“Are you kidding me? They are devoting law enforcement resources to sting operations for this? There has to be higher priorities,” he wrote.“This was a setup & politically motivated,” he said. “It reeks of desperation. We will fight all bogus charges.”

Here are the tweets from Michael Avenatti.

We will update this story as details become available.
