Her attorney, Michael Avenatti, tweeted afterward Daniels "refuses to be intimidated" and would "return to the scene of the "no crime" and perform again Thursday night at the club. They say two other strippers, who were also arrested, were the first offenders - with one of them motorboating and groping Officer Praither.
Avenatti did not provide details on the "act" in question, but he said Daniels was "arrested for allegedly allowing a customer to touch her while on stage in a non sexual manner".
'We will fight all bogus charges'. According to the dismissal documents, OH law states that it is illegal to "knowingly touch a patron" on the premises of a "sexually oriented business" on which they "regularly appear nude or seminude".
Daniels planned to be in Columbus on Wednesday and Thursday as part of a nationwide tour, Avenatti said.
On Thursday afternoon, Daniels told Inside Edition's Steven Fabian that she is "abso-f***in-lutely" still performing later in the night.
Avenatti called the operation "a setup and politically motivated".
"This is ridiculous that law enforcement resources were used to conduct this sting operation", he said.
Murphy said it's possible police were "bypassing" Daniels' arrest if she'd committed a "bondable offense", meaning she could pay a bond and be released from jail until her case is decided. A person who answered the phone at the club declined to comment.
Columbus Police Chief Kim Jacobs said officers at the club missed that element of the law.
Police approached Daniels, who was topless and wearing a G-string, after she was seen "using her bare breasts to smack the patrons" and "fondling the breasts of the female patrons", according to an incident report published online by a local news outlet.

UPDATE 10:10AM 7/12/2018: Columbus City Attorney Zach Klein has dismissed charges against Stormy Daniels (real name Stephanie A. Gregory Clifford).
Trump's longtime former personal attorney, Michael Cohen, arranged a nondisclosure agreement shortly before the 2016 presidential election and paid Daniels $130,000 to keep quiet about the alleged sexual encounter.
