Ex-Trump aide: Stormy Daniels arrest 'reeks of entrapment'

The adult film actress who is suing President Trump over an affair she says she had with him was arrested at an OH strip club for allegedly allowing a customer to touch her while onstage, Daniels's lawyer, Michael Avenatti, tweeted.

Daniels will plead not guilty to three misdemeanor charges, according to her lawyer Michael Avenatti.

Stormy Daniels has been arrested in OH while performing a strip show at Sirens Gentleman's Club in Columbus.

The police report states that Daniels, while topless and wearing a G-string, allegedly put both of her hands on an officer's buttocks, placed both hands on an officer's breast, and then put her breasts in an officer's face. "There has to be higher priorities". "We will fight all bogus charges", Avenatti tweeted. He went on to allege it was a politically motivated arrest.

But in a probable cause affidavit obtained by CNN affiliate WSYX, detectives who were at the Sirens Gentlemen's Club said they observed Daniels remove her top and force patrons' faces into her chest.

According to an article published a year ago in The Columbus Dispatch, the law, which also restricts the hours of operation for strip clubs and adult book stores, is rarely, if ever, enforced.

An Ohio law known as the Community Defense Act, passed in 2007, prohibits anyone who is not a family member from touching a nude or semi-nude dancer.

The documents did not indicate if the officers were in plain clothes or in uniform at the time.

The US President and the First Lady will land at Stansted Airport, Essex, to start his visit to London and the south of England. Ms Elliott, who is originally from Virginia, said she is hopeful there could be a state visit by Mr Trump next year.

Daniels' arraignment is scheduled for Friday at Ohio's Franklin County Municipal Court. A person who answered the phone at the strip club declined to comment.

Daniels, whose legal name is Stephanie Clifford, claims to have had a sexual encounter with Trump in 2006, which Trump has denied.

In April, Daniels filed suit in federal court in NY charging that Trump had defamed her.

Avenatti called the arrest a "complete set up" in an interview with the Associated Press.

She is suing Trump and his former personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, to be released from a nondisclosure agreement that she says she signed days before the 2016 presidential election to prevent her from publicly discussing the alleged affair.

Daniels has been embroiled in a lawsuit with the President since early March, to get out of a non-disclosure agreement relating to an alleged affair she had with him in 2006.

However, Trump - who initially denied knowledge of the payment - subsequently conceded that Cohen was in fact reimbursed.
