Daniels planned to be in Columbus Wednesday and Thursday as part of a nationwide tour, Avenatti said.
She was booked and released early Thursday morning on a $6000 bond. "We also expect that she will be charged with a misdemeanor for allowing "touching". He said his client was "performing the same performance that she has conducted at over a hundred strip clubs around the country".

Daniels has said she had sex with Trump in 2006 and that Trump's personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, paid her $130,000 to keep the encounter secret shortly before the presidential election.
