Ms Daniels was arrested for allegedly letting a customer touch her on stage "in a non-sexual manner", her lawyer tweeted. She has posted bail.

US adult film star Stormy Daniels has been arrested in a strip club in Columbus, Ohio.

Ms Daniels was arrested for allegedly letting a customer touch her on stage "in a non-sexual manner", her lawyer tweeted. She has posted bail.

The lawyer, Michael Avenatti, said she would deny the charges.

Ms Daniels became embroiled in a row with President Donald Trump after saying she had slept with him in 2006, an allegation which he denies.

Her lawyer called the arrest "a setup" and "politically motivated".

Documents posted on the Franklin County Municipal Court website show Ms Daniels has posted $6,054 (£4,586) in bail, and is scheduled for an arraignment on Friday.

US media tweeted a mugshot of Ms Daniels, purportedly from the Franklin County Sheriff's Office in Columbus.
NBC News have posted a video online of what they say is Ms Daniels arriving at Jackson Pike Correctional Center in handcuffs.

Mr Avenatti tweeted that Ms Daniels, real name Stephanie Clifford, had been performing "the same act she has performed across the nation at nearly 100 strip clubs".

Mr Avenatti later said his client would plead not guilty to all three misdemeanour charges, and also posted a statement from Ms Daniels saying she would not be able to go ahead with tonight's show.

"I deeply apologise to my fans in Columbus," the statement read.
