COLUMBUS, Ohio (WTVN)--Five Columbus Police officers have been departmentally charged in connection to the arrest of Stormy Daniels at a city gentleman's club last year.
Interim Police Chief Thomas Quinlan says the officers, who were once a part of the now-disbanded VICE Unit, include a commander, lieutenant, sergeant, and two of the arresting officers.
Daniels was performing at Siren's Gentlemen's Club in July 2018 when she was arrested, along with two other female employees of the establishment.
All of the charges against the three were eventually dropped.Legal action is also pending against the department as a result of the arrests.
Quinlan says each officer faces discipline ranging from a reprimand, to demotion or suspension, or even termination, for violating the CPD rules of conduct.
