UNITED NEWS INTERNATIONAL (UNI) — Porn star Stormy Daniels was arrested on Thursday, July 12 at an Ohio strip club.
Daniels was accused of illegally touching patrons in violation of state law.
In Ohio, the Community Defense Act prohibits anyone who isn’t a family member to touch a nude or semi-nude performer.
Official documents alleged that Daniels forced herself onto patrons.
When three undercover officers approached the stage, Daniels allegedly placed her breasts into the face of one officer, then proceeded to do the same for the other officers.
She was arrested and charged with three misdemeanor counts of illegally touching a patron.
Two other performers, accused of performing similar acts, were arrested along with Daniels.
Daniel’s lawyer Michael Avenatti claims the arrest was a “set-up” and “politically motivated.”
According to court documents, the case against Daniels was eventually dismissed due to the porn star not regularly performing at the club.
