NEW YORK: Charges have been dropped against adult film star Stormy Daniels, who is locked in a court battle with President Donald Trump, her lawyer said on Thursday following her arrest in Ohio for allegedly “fondling” patrons at a strip club.

Michael Avenatti announced on Twitter.

He thanked prosecutors and posted photographs of court documents showing that the state of Ohio had moved to dismiss the case because it did “not have probable cause to proceed on any of the three charges set forth in the complaints.”
