Stormy Daniels arrested in Ohio

FRANKLIN CO., Ohio (NBC) Stormy Daniels, the adult film actress who has made headlines for an alleged affair with Donald Trump, has been arrested in Franklin County Ohio according to her attorney Michael Avenatti.

In a Twitter post, Avenatti said Daniels was performing in a strip club.

Avenatti tells NBC News his understanding is that there were several undercover vice officers in the club.

He says he's confident that she'll be cleared of all charges.

Daniels was transported to jail and is expected to be charged with a misdemeanor.
