Adult film star Stormy Daniels, who has claimed she had an affair with Donald Trump and is suing the president, was arrested during a performance at an Ohio strip club, her lawyer said early Thursday.
Michael Avenatti told NBC News that Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, was touched in a non-sexual manner while on stage.
An Ohio law known as the Community Defense Act prohibits anyone who isn’t a family member to touch a nude or semi-nude dancer.
The Franklin County Sheriff’s Office later confirmed that Daniels had been charged with three misdemeanor sex offenses.
The porn star is due to appear in court on Friday.
