Charges were dropped against porn star Stormy Daniels for allegedly touching three undercover detectives while performing at a strip club Wednesday night, according to a series of tweets by her attorney, Michael Avenatti.

“I am pleased to report that the charges against my client @stormydaniels have been dismissed in their entirety,” Avenatti wrote on Twitter, linking to court documents.

Avenatti did not immediately return PEOPLE’s request for comment.

Daniels (real name Stephanie Clifford), who is suing President Donald Trump over a hush agreement regarding an alleged affair made days before the 2016 election, was charged Wednesday night in Columbus, Ohio, under an Ohio law that states “no person who regularly appears nude or seminude on the premises of a sexually oriented business, while on the premises of that sexually oriented business while seminude, shall knowingly touch a patron.” Two other women were also arrested that night, according to the court docs.

Columbus City Attorney Zach Klein dismissed the charges due to “no evidence provided to the State that Defendant appears or has appeared regularly at Sirens,” the docs state.

“My office has reviewed the charges filed by the Columbus Division of Police, and I’ve determined that these crimes were not committed, based on the fact that Ms. Clifford has not made regular appearances at this establishment as required under the law,” Klein said in a statement to the Associated Press on Thursday. “We’ll do the same inquiry for the other defendants involved, as well. My office was not involved in this sting operation, so any additional questions about it must be directed to the Columbus Division of Police. The charges have been dismissed.”
