STORMY Daniels has been arrested while performing at a strip club prompting her lawyer to sensationally claim the incident was "politically motivated".
The porn actress, 39, who claims to have had sex with US President Donald Trump, was detained at Sirens Gentlemen’s Club in Columbus, Ohio, for reportedly allowing a fan to touch her.
Her lawyer, Michael Avenatti, wrote on Twitter that she was arrested for “performing the same act she has performed across the nation at nearly a hundred strip clubs”.
He added that she is accused of letting customers touch her, which is a violation of a state law.
An Ohio law prohibits anyone who isn’t a family member to touch a nude or semi-nude dancer but Mr Avenatti insisted patrons touched her in a “non-sexual” way.
He also claimed that it was a “set up and politically motivated” and that the incident “reeks of desperation”.
In March, Stormy, real name Stephanie Clifford, alleged she was threatened by a mystery goon in a car park in front of her daughter over claims she had an affair with Trump.
The arrest comes just hours before Trump is due to land in the UK for his visit as leader.
