Stormy Daniels files civil lawsuit against Ohio police officers over strip club arrest

The adult film actress says the arrest in July was politically motivated.

Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, was arrested July 11 at a strip club in Columbus on suspicion of sexually touching a patron while on stage, police said at the time.

It also claims the officers did research on her before the arrest.

Daniels' lawsuit is seeking a declaration from the court that the arrest violated her constitutional rights. She is seeking $1 million in compensatory damages and more than $1 million in punitive damages.

Daniels claims she had an affair with Trump in 2006. Trump and the White House has denied the affair.
