Mr Avenatti tweeted that Ms Daniels, real name Stephanie Clifford, had been performing "the same act she has performed across the nation at almost 100 strip clubs".
Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, was held overnight on Wednesday and released at around 6am on Thursday morning after posting a bail bond of $6,000.
She is scheduled to appear in court for an arraignment on Friday.
Her attorney said they will be opposing all charges.
Her attorney said she was set up in a Columbus police sting operation, something police deny.
He said that some patrons touched the 39-year-old in a "non-sexual way", but the police claims she violated state law, which prohibits anyone who is not a family member to touch a nude or semi-nude dancer. A violation is a misdemeanor.
Cohen allegedly paid Daniels $130,000 to keep quiet about her sexual encounter with Mr. Trump. "There has to be higher priorities".
"Columbus Police have made numerous arrests utilizing this law", the department said in a statement Thursday.
According to the report, Daniels held the faces of a female and male officer between her breast when they approached the stage. The strip club where she reportedly performed, called Sirens, also declined to comment when asked about the matter.
Earlier this week, Daniels performed in Washington at the Cloakroom, located about halfway between the Capitol and the White House, minutes before President Donald Trump announced his Supreme Court nomination. Trump has said he personally reimbursed Cohen for that payment.
Daniels, using Avenatti as her lawyer, is suing Trump and Cohen over the alleged non-disclosure agreement, trying to free herself from the deal. "I am all for following the rules and going by the book, no touching, no this, no that, but also at the same time, in my opinion, I feel like it was completely harmless", Curry said.
