Update: The charges against Stormy Daniels have been dropped.

A release from Columbus City Attorney Zach Klein states, “I’ve determined that these crimes were not committed, based on the fact that Ms. Clifford has not made regular appearances at this establishment as required under the law.”

“Regular appearances” is referring to this bit of Ohio law: “No employee who regularly appears nude or seminude on the premises of a sexually oriented business, while on the premises of that sexually oriented business and while nude or seminude, shall knowingly touch a patron who is not a member of the employee’s immediate family…”

A similar inquiry will be made into the cases of the two other individuals arrested last night at Sirens.

The statement wrapped up with, “My office was not involved in this sting operation, so any additional questions about it must be directed to the Columbus Division of Police.”

Stormy Daniels, an adult film actress who gained notoriety after suing President Donald Trump regarding an alleged affair, reportedly got stung in a Columbus strip club last night.

Daniels, whose legal name is Stephanie Clifford, is being accused of fondling patrons during her onstage performance Wednesday night.

She is facing three misdemeanor counts of illegally touching a patron but plans to plead not guilty.

According to CNN, detectives present at the Sirens Gentlemen’s Club at 6190 Cleveland Ave witnessed Daniels remove her top and shove patrons’ faces into her chest.

Franklin County Municipal Count records also show she was fondling the breasts of females.


Then, detectives reportedly approached the stage and in doing so, got a face full of Daniel’s breasts.

She grabbed the buttocks of another detective according to court documents.

According to Ohio law, “No patron who is not a member of the employee’s immediate family shall knowingly touch any employee while that employee is nude or seminude or touch the clothing of any employee while that employee is nude or seminude.”

Daniels, along with two others, were arrested at Sirens last night.

Her attorney, Michael Avenatti, tweeted, “She was arrested for allegedly allowing a customer to touch her while on stage in a nonsexual manner! Are you kidding me?”

He added, “They are devoting law enforcement resources to sting operations for this? There has to be higher priorities!!!
