Under Ohio law, a dancer at a sexually oriented business is barred from touching anyone but a family member when nude or semi-nude.
Daniels - who was paid $130,000 in hush money over her alleged 2006 affair with President Trump and is now fighting the validity of a non-disclosure agreement she signed - was bailed out of jail early Thursday. There has to be higher priorities!
Daniels - whose real name is Stephanie Clifford - is suing Trump and his former personal lawyer Michael Cohen to nullify a 2016 non-disclosure agreement preventing her from speaking out about the affair she says she had with Trump in 2006.

The high-powered attorney claims the arrest was "part of a sting" based on a "puritan law" that says there is absolutely no touching in strip clubs in Columbus.

"We are highly confident that in the unlikely event that the district attorney proceeds with charges that she will be found not guilty", Avenatti told The Post.
Daniels was reportedly headlining a performance at the Sirens Gentlemen's Club in Columbus, Ohio. Avenatti tweeted that his client would not perform at the club Thursday night. The White House has said Trump denies an affair happened.
Her lawyer, Michael Avenatti, told followers on Twitter it was the: "same act she has performed across the nation at almost a hundred clubs".More news: Donald Trump: 'Nato is much stronger than it was two days ago'
