Storm is over, strip club charges dropped


Stormy Daniels can chalk this one up as a quickie - the charges from her Columbus, Ohio strip club arrest have already been dropped.

Stormy Daniels, the adult film star who alleges Trump's lawyer paid her $130,000 to keep quiet about an affair she had with the President in 2006, was arrested in OH on Wednesday night, TMZ reports.

Daniels was booked under a 10-year-old state law known as the Community Defense Act that says dancers at "sexually oriented" businesses are prohibited from touching customers and vice versa.

Prosecutors dropped charges against Daniels today hours after her arrest. The report says Daniels fondled the buttocks and breasts of another officer.
