An Ohio legislation referred to as the Group Protection Act prohibits anybody who isn’t a member of the family to the touch a nude or semi-nude dancer.
Daniels, whose actual title is Stephanie Clifford, was in police custody early Thursday morning and was anticipated to face a misdemeanor cost, Avenatti mentioned.

A Columbus police spokeswoman didn’t instantly reply to a message searching for remark. An individual who answered the telephone on the strip membership declined to remark.
