Daniels was scheduled to appear at the Sirens strip club on Wednesday and Thursday nights, the club’s website says. But her lawyer, Michael Avenatti, said she was taken into custody after she allowed a club patron to touch her.
A woman who answered the phone at the strip club declined to comment on whether Daniels had been arrested or on whether her performance was still scheduled.
Calls to the Columbus Police Department’s media information officers went to voicemail.
Daniels has said previously that she had sex with Trump in 2006 after his wife, Melania, had given birth to their son, Barron. Trump has denied having sex with Daniels but his lawyer Rudy Giuliani has acknowledged that she was paid $130,000 by Michael Cohen as part of a nondisclosure agreement.
She is suing to invalidate the nondisclosure agreement, which she signed shortly before the 2016 presidential election.
