Adult film actress Stormy Daniels - one of US President Donald Trump's most famous legal sparring partners - has been arrested while performing at a strip club, according to her lawyer who called the incident in OH "politically motivated" and a "set-up".

TMZ broke the story. sources connected with the club tell us the undercover officers waited in the back of the club for Stormy to take the stage, appearing as if they were gunning for her.

Daniels' attorney, Michael Avenatti, called the charges "bogus", alleging that his client was set up in a "politically motivated" manner during one of her regular performances.

Daniels, 39, has filed two civil lawsuits against Trump, with whom she said she had a sexual encounter in 2006, a decade before he was elected president.

He said he expected his client to be released on bail and that she would be charged with a misdemeanor for allowing touching.

A prosecutor's memo provided by Avenatti said an OH illegal touching law cannot be enforced because Daniels has only appeared once at the Columbus club. "I deeply apologize to my fans in Columbus", Daniels said in a statement released by her attorney.

The law, The Community Defense Act, prohibits adult entertainment - defined as nude or topless dancing - between midnight and 6am.
