WASHINGTON- Adult film star Stormy Daniels has been arrested in a Columbus strip club in Ohio, her lawyer said.

Daniels was arrested for allegedly letting a customer touch her on stage "in a non sexual manner".

Lawyer Michael Avenatti called the arrest a setup and politically motivated. He tweeted that Daniels had been performing "the same act she has performed across the nation at nearly a hundred strip clubs. We will fight all bogus charges.”

Ohio law proscribes anyone touching a nude or semi-nude dancer, unless they are related.

Daniels whose real name is Stephanie Clifford claims she had a sexual relationship with President Donald Trump, an allegation which Trump denies.
