Porn star and would-be Louisiana politician busted in Tampa

TAMPA — The cuffs may have been familiar but not the circumstances for porn star Stormy Daniels when Tampa police arrested her Saturday on domestic battery charges.

Police say Daniels came home after 7 p.m., confronted her husband about an unpaid bill and began throwing things in their home at 2804 W Wyoming Ave. She told officers she was just trying to get the car keys that her husband was holding over his head and accidentally hit him in the face several times, according to the arrest report.

Her husband was not hurt, but Daniels was taken to the Hillsborough County Jail, where she was booked under the off-screen name Stephanie Gregory Clifford, and posted $1,000 bail Sunday afternoon.

The porn movie actor and director grabbed national headlines last year when she announced she may run for the U.S. Senate in Louisiana in 2010. She would be vying against Sen. David Vitter, who has his own sexual issues after being linked to the high-profile D.C. Madam in 2008.

    The Suncoast Parkway ends at U.S. 98 just south of Citrus County. For years residents have opposed extending the toll road, a project dubbed the "Suncoast 2" into Citrus County. But state officials recently announced that the Suncoast 2 should start construction in early 2018. [Stephen J. Coddington  |  TIMES]
