Charges Dropped Against Workers Arrested with Stormy Daniels

COLUMBUS, Ohio (WTVN)--Columbus City Attorney Zach Klein has dropped the charges against two strip club employees that were arrested on the same night that Stormy Daniels was taken into custody.

Miranda Panda and Brittany Walters were also taken into custody by Columbus Police the night of July 11th at Sirens, using the same state statute that bars performers from touching patrons.

Klein says after reviewing both of their cases, the facts do not meet the elements required to prosecute under the law.

Klein argues that Panda and Walters also are not considered to be "regular performers," adding that Walters did not meet the requirement of "touching a patron", and Panda was found to not have appeared "nude or semi-nude" while working as a server.

Klein had the charges dropped against Daniels, AKA Stephanie Clifford, last week. After her release, Daniels performed the following night at Vanity.

In an interview with ABC-6 after that performance, Daniels showed no animosity towards police.
