Porn star Stormy Daniels was arrested in Columbus, Ohio on Wednesday night while performing, according to her lawyer.
Daniels' lawyer, Michael Avenatti, posted the claim on Twitter, writing that it was a "setup & politically motivated."
Avenatti later claimed that Daniels was arrested in a "sting operation," again promoting a conspiracy theory, without evidence, that she was "set up."
"We expect her to be released on bail shortly," Avenatti added in a subsequent tweet. "We also expect that she will be charged with a misdemeanor for allowing 'touching.' We will vehemently contest all charges. #Basta"
