Police Arrest, Quickly Release Stormy Daniels at Ohio Strip Club

The Columbus Police Department released body-camera footage showing Stormy Daniels, an adult performer who claims to have had an affair with President Trump, being arrested at a strip club in Columbus, Ohio, on July 12.

This footage, edited for length, shows Daniels climbing handcuffed into a van, sitting in the van, and being finger-printed.

Police officers arrested Daniels on charges of touching customers, local media said, but she was quickly released.

Police also arrested two other women working at the strip club, who are still facing charges.

The Columbia Dispatch explained the charges, saying, “Under an Ohio law passed in 2007, an employee who regularly appears nude or seminude at a sexually oriented business is prohibited from touching patrons, except for family members.” Credit: Columbus Division of Police via Storyful
