Lawyers representing the entertainer filed a lawsuit against Columbus Police and the officers alleging the arrest was pre-planned or politically motivated. An internal affairs investigation into the arrest concluded the allegations were found not to be credible. However, the investigation concluded officers improperly arrested the adult film star.
Daniels was arrested and charged with inappropriate touching and inappropriate acts with customers, some whom turned out to be Columbus Police officers. Charges against her were later dropped.
Before the arrest, Daniels made headlines for claiming to have an affair with President Donald Trump in 2006.
According to Columbus Police, the investigation included 19 individual interviews, a review of more than 11,000 emails, and more than 30 hours of video.
The agency said the investigation will be forwarded to the Narcotics Bureau Commander and the Investigative Subdivision Deputy Chief for review and comments. Recommendations and findings on the allegations will be ruled on by Deputy Chief Tim Becker.
