Stormy’s strip club charges dismissed most summarily
CHARGES were dropped against adult film star Stormy Daniels on Thursday after a strip club arrest that her lawyer slammed as being “politically motivated”.
Ms Daniels (pictured) who is suing President Donald Trump, was arrested during a show in Columbus, Ohio, after officers accused her of touching patrons inappropriately.
Ohio law prohibits employees who regularly appear “nude or semi-nude on the premises of a sexually oriented business” from being touched by or touching club-goers.
Her lawyer Michael Avenatti has announced the charges had been “dismissed in their entirety” and thanked prosecutors for their “professionalism” in a tweet.
Mr Avenatti charged earlier that undercover officers asked her if they could place their face between her breasts while she was performing,” he said.
Mr Avenatti called the three misdemeanour charges “an absurd use of law enforcement resources.”
Ms Daniels, 39, later announced a follow-up performance at the same club.
Ms Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, is suing Mr Trump and his former lawyer Michael Cohen to nullify a 2016 non-disclosure agreement stopping her from speaking out about an alleged affair with Mr Trump in 2006.
