Stormy Daniels arrested after 'grabbing' undercover officer's backside at strip club, calls arrest 'politically motivated'
Stormy Daniels has been arrested at a strip club for allegedly letting some patrons touch her which her lawyer argues was done in a 'non-sexual' way
Stormy Daniels was arrested during a Wednesday night performance at a strip club in Columbus, Ohio after allegedly "fondling" patrons including undercover police officers, according to police.
The adult film star was performing at the Sirens club when she reportedly used her bare breasts to smack patrons. The officers also said they observed Daniels fondling the breasts of female patrons.
The report states that Daniels held the face of a female officer between her breasts and did the same to a male officer. Daniels then fondled the buttocks and breasts of another officer. At that point, a fourth officer exited the club to request assistance to make an arrest.
According to TMZ, Daniels was arrested later on that night at the club due to an Ohio state law which bans anyone who is not a family member from touching a nude or semi-nude dancer. She was booked and then eventually released on early Thursday morning. Stormy's lawyer, Michael Avenatti conceded that the patrons did touch his client but did so in a completely "non-sexual" way.
Avenatti went on to add, "This was a complete setup... It's absurd that law enforcement resources are being spent to conduct a sting operation" [sic]. He further added that he believed that it was a politically motivated arrest.
