Charges against adult film actress Stormy Daniels for allegedly touching three undercover detectives while performing at an OH strip club were dismissed Thursday, her attorney said.

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

Daniels was transported to jail and later released on bail.

An Ohio law known as the Community Defense Act, passed in 2007, prohibits anyone who is not a family member from touching a nude or semi-nude dancer.

Avenatti noted that the law applies to those who regularly perform at such clubs and there was no evidence that Daniels had ever appeared there before.

"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", Columbus City Attorney Zach Klein said. According to a tweet from Stormy's laywer, Michael Avenatti, she has been charged with three misdemeanors, all of which Stormy will plead "not guilty to".

Columbus police did not confirm Daniels' arrest to Fox News. According to court documents, Daniels took the stage around 11:30 p.m. and "began forcing the faces of the patrons into her chest and using her bare breasts to smack the patrons". She is scheduled to appear in court on Friday morning.

Another detective who was standing back by the bar said he witnessed the "criminal activity". Police documents show that Stormy touched Prather's butt and breasts and then put her own breasts in Prather's face. The strip club where she reportedly performed, called Sirens, also declined to comment when asked about the matter.

Avenatti said the arrest was a politically-motivated "sting operation".

"I am pleased to report that the charges against my client have been dismissed in their entirety", Daniels' attorney Michael Avenatti tweeted.

Daniels, 39, was apprehended without incident during a performance late on Wednesday at the Sirens club in Columbus, Ohio, after officers accused her of knowingly touching patrons "in a specified anatomical area".

'This was a setup and politically motivated. "It reeks of desperation", his tweet said. He added: "We will fight all bogus charges".

Avenatti confirmed to Fox News that his client was arrested just after midnight Thursday. In 2016, Daniels sued Trump claiming that he never signed the nondisclosure or "hush" agreement, in hopes of making it invalid.
