COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -Stormy Daniels' lawyer says the porn actress was arrested at an Ohio strip club and is accused of letting patrons touch her, which is a violation of a state law.

Michael Avenatti tells The Associated Press on Thursday that Daniels was taken into custody during a show in Columbus, Ohio.

Avenatti says during the performance, some patrons touched her in a "non-sexual" way.

An Ohio law prohibits anyone who isn't a family member to touch a nude or semi-nude dancer.

Avenatti called the arrest a "complete set up." He says she was arrested inside the club.

Franklin County Jail officials said she was released around 6 a.m. Thursday. Court records show Daniels posted $6,000. As a result of the arrest, Daniels will not perform Thursday night. 

Daniels, also known as Stephanie Clifford, is set for a Friday arraignment on three misdemeanor counts of touching a patron at a "sexually oriented" business.
