Stormy Daniels' lawyer said they will"vehemently contest all charges

In what her lawyer dubbed a politically motivated set-up, Daniels was arrested without incident at the Sirens club in Columbus, Ohio after officers accused her of knowingly touching club patrons "in a specified anatomical area".

Adult entertainer Stormy Daniels - who has drawn worldwide headlines for her lawsuit against USA president Donald Trump - was one of three exotic dancers arrested in Columbus, Ohio early Thursday morning.

On Twitter, Avenatti wrote that the arrest was a "setup and politically motivated". He vowed to fight the "bogus charges", even suggesting there are "higher priorities" at stake for the police.

ABC News reached out to Avenatti who declined to elaborate beyond his tweets.

"I am pleased to report that the charges against my client, Stormy Daniels, have been dismissed in their entirety", said Daniels's attorney, Michael Avenatti, along with a picture of the motion to dismiss.

While it's unclear what charges, if any, Daniels may face following her arrest, it may relate to a 2007 state law called the Community Defense Act that prohibits dancers from touching customers and vice versa - excluding immediate family members.

He said Daniels was arrested for allegedly allowing a customer to touch her in a non-sexual way while on stage. It claims says she put both hands on a police officer's buttocks, placed her hands on an officer's breasts and then put her breasts in an officer's face.

The court documents also did not specify whether or not Clifford was taken into custody.

Daniels is scheduled to be arraigned Friday morning.

"Are you kidding me?" Avenatti said in another tweet, appearing to suggest a set-up.

Asked if Daniels' arrest could impact her legal wrangling with Cohen, Avenatti said "not at all".

Columbus City Attorney Zach Klein said his office had determined that Daniels committed no crime because she did not perform regularly at the club, as required under the law, and confirmed that the charges were dismissed.
