Columbus officers face discipline in Stormy Daniels arrest

Columbus officers face discipline in Stormy Daniels arrest”

Five police officers involved in the arrest of adult film star Stormy Daniels during an appearance in the city past year are facing disciplinary action, according to reports.

Interim police Chief Tom Quinlan made the decision to charge the five officers departmentally because they "violated the Columbus Division of Police rules of conduct", according to Wednesday's release.

Two days later, the charges against all three performers were dropped, and an internal investigation was launched by the department focused on allegations that officers might have been retaliating against Daniels over her post-election claims that she had an extramarital affair with President Donald Trump in 2006.

Daniels was arrested at Sirens in July 2018 on suspicion of inappropriately touching an undercover officer.

Daniels filed a federal civil lawsuit against the OH officers involved in her strip club arrest in January alleging they were pro-Donald Trump and that they arrested her purely for political reasons based on allegations she made of an affair with Trump before he ran for president in 2016. At the time, Daniels was fighting to void a nondisclosure agreement - a "hush deal" she had agreed to that involved a $130,000 payment from Trump's attorney, Michael Cohen.

Daniels is claiming false arrest, malicious prosecution, conspiracy to violate the Fourth and 14th amendments and abuses of process violating OH law.

The disciplinary action against the officers could result in a reprimand, suspension, demotion and possible termination.

The police department's review found the arrests to be improper but that they weren't politically motivated.

A federal inquiry into the incident is also ongoing.

Panda and Walters - the two women who were arrested along with Daniels - filed their own lawsuit over the incident; in January, the Columbus City Council settled that suit for $150,000.

However, due to pending litigation and a federal criminal investigation into the now-disbanded vice unit, the Columbus Police said it will not be releasing any more information on the case.
