Adult film star Stormy Daniels was arrested on Wednesday while performing at a strip club in OH, according to her lawyer, who called the arrest a "politically motivated" setup.

NBC News have posted a video online of what they say is Ms Daniels arriving at Jackson Pike Correctional Center in handcuffs. Columbus Police confirmed to the Columbus Dispatch the law is rarely enforced in the state of OH despite being on the books for the past 11 years.

'This was a setup and politically motivated. We will fight all bogus charges.

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 said the officers present at the performance were in plain clothes.

The Community Defense Act was passed in OH in 2007 after the conservative religious group Citizens for Community Values lobbied heavily for rules against strip club operations. He was married to Melania Trump at the time and has denied Daniel's claim.

A Columbus police spokeswoman didn't immediately respond to a message seeking comment.

"Are you kidding me?"

Daniels was scheduled to perform at Sirens Gentlemen's Club on Wednesday and Thursday, according to its website. They are devoting law enforcement resources to sting operations for this?

Avenatti said it was "ridiculous" that Columbus Police forced Daniels on a perp walk for the cameras at Jackson Pike Correctional Facility and police could instead focus on Columbus's skyrocketing murder rate. There has to be higher priorities!

Dailymail.com reached out to Sirens who refused to comment.

Ms Daniels says she was paid $130,000 (£98,000) shortly before the 2016 presidential election to keep quiet about her alleged sexual encounter with Mr Trump.

Daniels has been embroiled in a lawsuit with the President since early March, to get out of a non-disclosure agreement relating to an alleged affair she had with him in 2006.

After denying knowledge of the payment, Trump admitted in May that his longtime lawyer, Cohen, was reimbursed through a monthly retainer for a $130,000 payment made to Daniels in 2016 to stop what Trump called "false and extortionist accusations" about a decade-old affair.
