Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, was expected to face a misdemeanor charge, Avenatti said. Daniels started performing at about 11:30 p.m. Wednesday, according to an affidavit filed in Franklin County Municipal Court. In addition to touching Prather's breasts and butt during her act, Daniels allegedly placed the officer's face on her breasts.

Stormy Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, the porn film star who said she had an affair with Donald Trump before he became us president, is shown in this booking photo released by Franklin County Sheriff's Office, in Columbus, Ohio, on July 12, 2018. We also expect that she will be charged with a misdemeanor for allowing 'touching.' We will vehemently contest all charges.

They say Daniels is not subject to a state law that prohibits anyone who isn't a family member from touching a nude dancer, because it only applies to someone who "regularly" appears at a jiggle joint - and she was a guest, according to court papers tweeted out by her lawyer Michael Avenatti. According to TMZ, the customer Daniels allowed to "motorboat" her turned out to be Columbus police officer Mary Prather.

"Are you kidding me?" he asked.

"They are devoting law enforcement resources to sting operations for this? There has to be higher priorities", Avenatti wrote on Twitter.

Columbus police said Thursday that Daniels' arrest was part of a long-term human trafficking investigation of illegal activity at city adult clubs.

The police report states that Daniels, while topless and wearing a G-string, allegedly put both of her hands on an officer's buttocks, placed both hands on an officer's breast, and then put her breasts in an officer's face.

She posted bail of about $6000 (A$8100) dollars and was released. Rarely used 2007 law Layken Curry, a dancer at Sirens Gentleman's Club, said dancers are not allowed to have contact with the customers and must maintain a one-arm distance from them. A person who answered the phone at the strip club declined to comment. Avenatti called the arrest a "complete set up" in an interview with the Associated Press. Trump has forcefully denied the affair. Avenatti tweeted that his client would not perform at the club Thursday night.

Cohen paid Daniels US$130,000 (S$170,000), just days before the 2016 election, in exchange for her silence.

Daniels, using Avenatti as her lawyer, is suing Trump and Cohen over the alleged non-disclosure agreement, trying to free herself from the deal.
