Man Claims He Was Anally Probed 8 Times Following Traffic Stop For Drugs « CBS Las Vegas
DEMING, N.M. (CBS Las Vegas) — A New Mexico man claims he was anally probed several times by police and medical officials following a traffic stop.
The victim, David Eckert, claims in a federal lawsuit that officers from the Deming Police Department pulled him over after he failed to make a complete stop at a stop sign outside a Walmart this past January.Setting aside the horrific journalism of calling this guy a "victim" in the second paragraph before all the facts have come out, what a crazy story this is.According to the lawsuit and medical records, Eckert’s abdominal area was x-rayed twice, doctors stuck fingers in his anus twice, he had three enemas inserted anally and had a colonoscopy performed. No drugs were ever found during the search.
And to top it off, the guy was sent a $6,000 bill from the hospital for the procedures.
