Daniels’ lawyer, Michael Avenatti, initially tweeted that Daniels was arrested for allowing a patron of the club to touch her in a “non sexual manner.” But court documents have drastically different details.

My client @StormyDaniels will issue a plea of “Not Guilty” to the three misdemeanor charges.

According to the arrest report, cited by local CBS affiliate 10TV, undercover officers witnessed Daniels touching members of the audience with her bare breasts. She then allegedly touched one of the female undercover cops, by holding the officer’s face between her breasts. The report also states that Daniels touched another officer’s buttocks. Police say two additional strippers were also arrested at Sirens for touching. Physical contact between a performing stripper and a patron is illegal in Ohio.
