Adult film star Stormy Daniels was arrested during a Wednesday night performance at a strip club in Ohio, according to her lawyer, who called the arrest a “politically motivated” setup.
Daniels, who made headlines earlier this year over her claims of an alleged affair with President Donald Trump, was arrested while performing at the Sirens Gentlemen’s Club in Columbus after she allegedly allowed “a customer to touch her while on stage,” her attorney, Michael Avenatti, said via Twitter early Thursday morning.
“Just [received] word that my client @StormyDaniels was arrested in Columbus Ohio [while] performing the same act she has performed across the nation at nearly a hundred strip clubs,” Avenatti tweeted. “This was a setup [and] politically motivated. It reeks of desperation. We will fight all bogus charges.”
ABC News reached out to Avenatti, who declined to elaborate beyond his tweets.
