Ohio has rarely used 2007 law that protects strippers: report

  Ohio has rarely used 2007 law that protects strippers: report It was unclear early Thursday exactly what charges, if any, porn star Stormy Daniels may face following her arrest at an Ohio strip club. But the charges may relate to a 2007 state law called the Community Defense Act that prohibits dancers from touching customers and vice versa – excluding immediate family members.The law was introduced by a conservative religious group as an initiated state statute, and later took effect under former Democratic Gov. Ted Strickland without his signature, the Columbus Dispatch reported.

Stormy Daniels, the porn star at the center of a political storm involving President Trump, has been arrested, her lawyer says.

Michael Avenatti, who's become a frequent guest on cable TV networks since becoming Daniels' attorney, tweeted about the arrest early Thursday:

Columbus police tell CBS News they're not aware of Daniels being arrested, and as of early Thursday, Daniels wasn't being held by the Franklin County Sheriff's Department. The club, called Sirens, would only say "no comment" when reached by CBS News.

Daniels, 39, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, says she had sex with Mr. Trump in 2006. He was married to Melania Trump at the time and has denied Daniel's claim.

Daniels is suing the president and his former longtime personal lawyer and fixer Michael Cohen, and trying to invalidate a nondisclosure agreement she signed days before the 2016 presidential election.

Cohen allegedly paid Daniels $130,000 to keep quiet about her sexual encounter with Mr. Trump. The payment might have violated campaign finance laws.
