A commander, Lieutenant, a Sergeant and 2 arresting officers are facing punishment after their involvement in the arrest of adult film actress Stormy Daniels and two others at Sirens strip club in Columbus last year.
Daniels was arrested last year on 07/11/18 along with Miranda Panda and Brittany Walters, on charges of sexually touching one of the patrons. At least that is what the police had to say about it. Apparently the police were on the look out for any suspicious sexual activity and sent in under cover cops to the Sirens strip club to investigate.
However, not soon after along with 11,000 emails and over 30 hours of video, Stormy Daniels, Miranda Panda and Brittany Walters were let go after proving they were improperly charged.
Daniels is now seeking a lawsuit where she which she hopes will come with a whopping $2 million in compensatory and punitive damage fees.
Not only that, but the 5 officers charged with her arrest are being departmentally charged with acting outside of police conduct by the Police Chief Tom Quinlan. The punishment may not exclude expulsion either, as chief Quinlan states their behavior was “not reflective of the good work the overwhelming majority of officers and supervisors do every day.”
However after the disbanding of the Vice Unit, the unit the officers were placed in, there will be no new information released on the criminal case.
