NBC News have posted a video online of what they say is Ms Daniels arriving at Jackson Pike Correctional Center in handcuffs.
DailyMail.com have contacted the Columbus Police Department for comment.
'This was a setup and politically motivated.
The lawyer, Michael Avenatti, said she would deny the charges.
An Ohio law prohibits anyone who isn't a family member to touch a nude or semi-nude dancer.
Avenatti did not provide details on the "act" in question, but he said Daniels was "arrested for allegedly allowing a customer to touch her while on stage in a non sexual manner". "Are you kidding me?" he wrote.
The Sirens Gentlemen's Club had posted on its website that Daniels was scheduled to perform there Wednesday and Thursday.
"This is ridiculous that law enforcement resources were used to conduct this sting operation", he said.
Stormy Daniels is pictured during an interview with Anderson Cooper about her alleged affair with Donald Trump. "There has to be higher priorities". Daniels was released on $6,000 bond, but has been hit with three charges related to an obscure 2007 law that was spearheaded by conservatives and meant to restrict sexual activity and limit strip club operating hours.
A person who answered the phone at Sirens declined to comment. She shoved each of their faces between her breasts, court documents said.
Avenatti issued a statement on her behalf saying that as a result, her performance at the jiggle joint Thursday night would be canceled.
She is trying to free herself from a non-disclosure agreement signed before the election, and suing over a "defamatory" tweet by the United States president earlier this year.
Trump's longtime former personal attorney, Michael Cohen, arranged a nondisclosure agreement shortly before the 2016 presidential election and paid Daniels $130,000 to keep quiet about the alleged sexual encounter.
Avenatti alleges the payment was a violation of campaign finance law and was created to suppress speech.
Daniels became a household name earlier this year after she claimed she had sex with Trump in 2006.
However, Trump - who initially denied knowledge of the payment - subsequently conceded that Cohen was in fact reimbursed.
