Adult film actress Stormy Daniels was arrested early Thursday at an Ohio strip club for allegedly touching three undercover detectives during her performance in violation of state law.

Daniels, who gained notoriety after suing President Donald Trump following an alleged affair, faces three misdemeanor counts of illegally touching a patron, court records show.
She posted a $6,054 bail and was released Thursday morning, and is due to be arraigned Friday morning, records show.
Daniels will plead not guilty to the three misdemeanor charges, her attorney, Michael Avenatti, tweeted.
The arrest of Daniels and two others was part of a “long-term investigation into allegations of human trafficking, prostitution, & other vice related violations,” Columbus police said in a statement.
Under an Ohio law passed in 2007, an employee who regularly appears nude or seminude is prohibited from touching patrons on the premises of a sexually oriented business — unless it’s a family member.
Avenatti said Daniels, was arrested while “performing the same act she has performed across the nation at nearly a hundred strip clubs.”
“This was a setup & politically motivated. It reeks of desperation,” his tweet said. “We will fight all bogus charges.”
