UPDATE: Stormy Daniels' attorney Michael Avenatti tweeted that the charges against his client have been dropped.
Statement from Columbus City Attorney Zach Klein:
"My office has reviewed the charges filed by the Columbus Division of Police, and I’ve determined that these crimes were not committed, based on the fact that Ms. Clifford has not made regular appearances at this establishment as required under the law. We’ll do the same inquiry for the other defendants involved, as well. My office was not involved in this sting operation, so any additional questions about it must be directed to the Columbus Division of Police. The charges have been dismissed.”
Adult film star Stormy Daniels is reportedly under arrest for allowing a customer to touch her during a routine at a Columbus, Ohio strip club. Her attorney, Michael Avenatti, reported the arrest on Twitter late Wednesday night, calling it desperate and politically motivated. Daniels says she had an affair with President Trump back in 2006 and was paid $130,000 to keep quiet about it just ahead of the 2016 election. Avenatti called the misdemeanor charge bogus and questioned the use of law enforcement resources for the arrest.
