Daniels, whose official name is Stephanie Clifford, gained notoriety after having sued President Donald Trump for an alleged affair.
She had faced three maltreatment counts when she illegally touched a client, including three undercover detectives, at the Sirens Gentlemen's Club in Columbus on Wednesday night.
She appeared at another location on Thursday night, but in the same city. She was originally scheduled for another performance in Sirens that evening, but her lawyer, Michael Avenatti, said she had decided to find another club.
Daniels was seen Thursday night at the Vanity Gentlemen's Club. When she left, CNN's Sara Sidner asked if she was hoping for an apology from the city of Columbus
"No," she replied. "I think they (Columbus Police) did their job and there was a misunderstanding."
Daniels said the past 24 hours are "intense but fully worth it."
Detectives allegedly touched by patrons
In a likely causal affidavit obtained from CNN member WSYX, detectives who were at Sirens gentlemen's club said they were watching that Daniels removes her top and forces the faces of the cartridge into her chest.
"The officers also observed that Ms. Clifford stroked the breasts of female patrons," court records show at Franklin County Court.
When officers witnessed these activities, three detectives approached the stage. Daniels allegedly made his way to two detectives, leaned forward and reached for their faces. She pushed each of her faces between her breasts, court documents said.
She stroked the buttocks and breasts of a third officer, according to the documents, squeezing the officer's head between her breasts and slamming the officer's face with her breasts.
Ohio Law Prohibits Touching Patrons
Daniels does not show up regularly at the club, so the charges were dismissed, according to court documents. 19659002] "I have found that these crimes were not committed because Ms. Clifford did not perform regularly at this facility, as the law requires," said Columbus City Attorney Zach Klein ID in a statement after reviewing the case.
Daniels had intended not to be guilty of the three administrative offenses, tweeted Avenatti.
The arrest of Daniels and two others was part of a "long-term investigation into allegations against trafficking, prostitution, and other vice offenses," the Columbus police said in a statement.
Avenatti calls the indictment fake
Previously, Avenatti had criticized the prosecution as "wrong".
"She was arrested for allegedly allowing a client to touch her on the stage in a non-sexual way! Are you kidding?" Avenatti tweeted. "You need to use law enforcement resources for spiked operations for it – there has to be higher priorities."
Avenatti said that Daniels was arrested while "playing the same act she has performed in nearly 100 strip clubs across the country." 196590000] "This was a setup and politically motivated, it smells of despair," said his tweet. "We will proceed against all false charges."
The Columbus police said they had made numerous arrests under this law since last fall when the authorities became aware of illegal activities in the nightclubs.
Daniels made headlines worldwide covering an alleged affair with Trump in 2006 – and for the $ 130,000 she said she received from her lawyer in 2016 for her silence. The White House has said that Trump denies that an affair has happened.
She is suing Trump and his former personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, for a secrecy agreement she signed, as she says, a few days before the 2016 presidential election to prevent her from publicly discussing the alleged affair.
She was arrested under a seldom-used law
Layken Curry, a dancer at Siren's Gentleman's Club, said that dancers must not have contact with clients and must keep a one-armed distance from them. When this area is breached by customers, they are generally escorted. When a dancer violates it, management usually looks after it, she said.
Curry said she had never seen anyone arrested during the two-and-a-half years she worked at Sirens, nor did she have any experience with the law during the job.
"I'm in favor of following the rules and following the book, no touches, no this and no," she said. "But at the same time, in my opinion, I feel like it's completely harmless, she showed a show, people paid money to see her, why not?"
