'This was a setup' Stormy Daniels's lawyer after arrest in Ohio

Asked if Daniels' arrest could impact her legal wrangling with Cohen, Avenatti said "not at all". He conceded that Stormy did allow herself to be touched, but it was in a "non-sexual manner".

"We will vehemently contest all charges", he said. Daniels reportedly did the same with a male detective as well, the report states.

Columbus police said Daniels' arrest wasn't a first.

Then, Daniels was accused of fondling the third officer's buttocks and breasts. When officers witnessed those activities, three detectives approached the stage.

Daniels' arraignment is scheduled for Friday at Ohio's Franklin County Municipal Court.

Daniels canceled her Thursday night performance in Columbus because of the charges.

Avenatti claimed the arrest was a politically-motivated "sting operation".

"Just received word that my client was arrested in Columbus Ohio while performing the same act she has performed across the nation at almost a hundred strip clubs", his tweet read.

According to an article published previous year 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. "There has to be a better objective for such resources".

Avenatti told MSNBC he has been in touch with the prosecutors, whom he described as "incredibly professional". I think they are going to be reasonable about this.

The group was found nine days later in a cramped chamber 2.5 miles inside the cave system by two British volunteer rescue divers . The rescue mission has been a huge operation, led by the Royal Thai Navy's SEAL unit , and supported by a cast of hundreds.

Patrons who dress like Trump will be given half off the cover charge and those dressing like Hillary Clinton will be admitted free of charge, according to the show. Unlike many other news organizations, we have not put up a paywall.

Klein said his office was not involved in what he called a "sting operation".

A judge has already signed off on the dismissal of charges.

A Columbus police spokeswoman did not immediately respond to a message seeking comment from the Associated Press.

Stormy Daniels, the porn star at the center of a political storm involving President Trump, has been arrested, her lawyer says. "It reeks of desperation", his tweet said. "We will fight all bogus charges", Avenatti said on Twitter.

The law, The Community Defense Act, prohibits adult entertainment - defined as nude or topless dancing - between midnight and 6am. But according to a Columbus Dispatch article published in September, 2017, the law has rarely been used. Her attorney, Michael Avenatti, said the touching was non-sexual.

Daniels, 39, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, says she had sex with Mr. Trump in 2006.

"It just seems absurd to me that this is something that would require this amount of resources and would result in the arrest of my client", Avenatti said. "I deeply apologize to my fans in Columbus".

Earlier this week, Daniels performed in Washington at the Cloakroom, located about halfway between the Capitol and the White House, minutes before President Donald Trump announced his Supreme Court nomination.
