Michael Avenatti, the lawyer for Stormy Daniels, tweeted early Thursday that his client was arrested while performing at a Columbus, Ohio, strip club.
Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, has said she had sex with Trump in 2006 when he was married, which Trump has denied. She’s suing Trump and his former longtime personal lawyer and fixer Michael Cohen and seeking to invalidate a nondisclosure agreement that she signed days before the 2016 presidential election.
Columbus police did not confirm the arrest to Fox News.
Avenatti did not explain the situation further, but said she was “performing the same act she has performed across the nation at nearly a hundred strip clubs.
“This was a setup & politically motivated,” he said. “It reeks of desperation. We will fight all bogus charges.”
