Last month, the Sirens Gentlemen's Club posted on its website that Daniels was scheduled to perform there Wednesday and Thursday.
He said that some patrons touched the 39-year-old in a "non-sexual way", but the police claims she violated state law, which prohibits anyone who is not a family member to touch a nude or semi-nude dancer.
The patron is not believed to have been detained.
Avenatti says Daniels has received a misdemeanor and will be "released shortly".
"This was a setup & politically motivated", Mr. Avenatti wrote. It reeks of desperation.
Early Thursday she remained in custody awaiting a determination of bail, Avenatti said. "We will fight all bogus charges", Avenatti tweeted. He said his client was "performing the same performance that she has conducted at over a hundred strip clubs around the country". We also expect that she will be charged with a misdemeanor for allowing "touching".
In October 2016 on the eve of the presidential election, reports emerged that Daniels had been paid $130,000 by then-Trump attorney Michael Cohen in "hush money" in exchange for her silence about an alleged 2007 affair. While exact details of the performance have yet to be released, the answer may lie with a decade-old OH state law, the Community Defense Act.
Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, is suing Mr Trump and his former personal lawyer Michael Cohen to nullify a 2016 non-disclosure agreement preventing her from speaking out about the affair she says they had in 2006.
