COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - A police investigation has concluded that last year's arrest of Stormy Daniels at an Ohio strip club was improper but not politically motivated or planned ahead of time.

Findings released Friday looked into allegations that Columbus officers who support President Donald Trump conspired to retaliate against the porn actress over her claims she had sex with Trump before he became president.

Daniels was arrested in July on suspicion of inappropriately touching an undercover officer. Prosecutors dropped charges hours later, saying the law cited in Daniels' arrest applied only to those who regularly performed at the club.

Keith Farrell is president of the Fraternal Order of Police lodge for Columbus. He says the finding of an improper arrest was inevitable after prosecutors dropped the charges.
