She performed similar acts on three officers and grabbed one by the buttocks, the affidavit said.
On Wednesday night, Daniels was performing at Columbus strip club Sirens.
So there are undercover vice officers that came to the club for the objective of trying to get her to touch them so that they could then arrest her, which is ludicrous.
According to CNN, the charges were dropped because Clifford is not a regular employee at the Columbus, Ohio, club. Prosecutors said they did not have probable cause to pursue the case, according to court documents posted by the attorney.
There were a few weeks earlier this year when it felt like Stormy Daniels and her lawyer had a monopoly on the news cycle. She is also accused of fondling the breasts of women in the audience, according to the report. When they subsequently approached her, she allegedly did the same to two of the detectives, while reportedly touching the third officer as detailed above.
The actress wrote that she meant to donate tips from a planned performance at Sirens on Thursday to the other dancers' legal defense.
An Ohio law known as the Community Defense Act prohibits anyone who isn't a family member to touch a nude or semi-nude dancer.
Court records show Daniels posted $6,054.00 in bail and was released.
She is scheduled to be arraigned in Franklin Municipal Court on Friday morning. If a dancer violates it, management usually takes care of the matter, she said.
Avenatti blasted the arrest as a "politically motivated sting" and a 'ridiculous use of [police] resources'.
Since news of the scandal broke in January, Daniels has toured as a featured performer at strip clubs throughout the country. "There has to be a better goal for such resources".
"I am not going to comment on what transpired after that", he added.
"Saddened to hear the other 2 dancers arrested with me last night did not have their charges dropped", she tweeted. We'll do the same inquiry for the other defendants involved, as well.
"Unbeknownst to her the police set up a sting operation within the strip club", he told MSNBC.
A judge has already signed off on the dismissal of charges.
Messages were left with the Columbus city prosecutor's office seeking comment.
Though Daniels' lawyer Michael Avenatti said he believes the arrest was political, Ford said the club isn't anxious about any issues of the kind in SC.
"It reeks of desperation", he tweeted. He vowed to fight the "bogus charges", even suggesting there are "higher priorities" at stake for the police. The Associated Press reports that the 2007 law was introduced by a conservative religious group, but some say it has seldom been enforced.
Daniels later announced that a follow-up performance at the same club on Thursday - initially cancelled - would go ahead after all.
