COLUMBUS, OH (FOX19)– Porn star Stormy Daniels, who claims to have had an affair with President Donald Trump, has been arrested at a Columbus strip club on a charge of letting patrons touch her, her lawyer said in a series of tweets overnight.

Ohio’s Community Defense Act prohibits anyone who is not a relative to touch a nude or semi-nude dancer.

Michael Avenatti told the Associated Press Daniels was arrested in Sirens Gentleman’s Club. He called it a "setup & politically motivated" and it "reeks of desperation."

Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Cifford, is suing Trump over a hush agreement about an affair she claims she had with him in 2006.

Columbus police confirmed the arrest. They said they had no further information. They referred questions to a police spokeswoman who has not responded to requests for comment.
