Michael Avenatti, the lawyer for adult film star Stormy Daniels, vowed to fight the "bogus charges" his client faces after she was apparently arrested early Thursday while performing at an OH strip club, in what he blasted as a "setup" that was "politically motivated".

Her lawyer, Michael Avenatti, told followers on Twitter it was the: "same act she has performed across the nation at almost a hundred clubs".

It also outlaws touching a nude or semi-nude dancer or their clothing in or in the direct vicinity of the club - unless the person is a member of the dancer's immediate family.

The patron is not believed to have been detained.

Daniels was transported to jail and is expected to be charged with a misdemeanor.

A spokesperson for the Franklin County Sheriff's Department told CBS as of early Thursday morning, Daniels was not being held there. Avenatti alleged that her arrest was "a politically motivated set up". "It reeks of desperation", his tweet said. "We will fight all bogus charges", Avenatti wrote.

But scattered monsoon rains continued to risk percolating through the limestone cave walls to flood the tunnels with water. Narongsak said: "Today is D-Day". "We should learn from this experience to prevent it from happening again".

A woman who answered the phone at the strip club declined to comment on whether Daniels had been arrested or on whether her performance was still scheduled.

The Ohio strip club law prohibiting the touching of dancers, the Community Defense Act, was proposed by a Cincinnati-based conservative religious organization and approved in 2007.

Dailymail.com reached out to Sirens who refused to comment. But according to a Columbus Dispatch article published in September, 2017, the law has rarely been used.

Through White House officials, Mr Trump has denied the affair, although Mr Cohen has admitted paying Daniels as part of the agreement.

Daniels has said she had sex with Trump in 2006 and that Trump's personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, paid her $130,000 to keep the encounter secret shortly before the presidential election.
