Two women sue Troopers for illegal roadside cavity search

Recommended Posts

Hum    6,930

A federal lawsuit filed by two Irving women claims that Texas State Troopers humiliated them by performing illegal cavity searches on the side of the road after a cigarette butt was thrown out of their car window.

State Trooper David Farrell called in a female trooper to perform cavity searches of Angel Dobbs, 38, and her 24-year-old niece, Ashley Dobbs, because he said that he smelled marijuana and the women were ?acting weird,? attorney Scott Palmer told KTVT on Tuesday.

Angel Dobbs recalled that the female trooper, Kelley Helleson, asked for her permission to perform the search and then told her to ?shut up and just listen.?

Dashcam video shows Helleson searching the anuses and vaginas of both women with the same latex gloves in full view of other passing cars. :x

?At this point, I?m in clear shock. I can?t even believe this is happening,? Angel Dobbs explained. Turns me around goes down into the front of my pants into my inner thigh and at which point she goes up with two fingers. I just look at her and say ?oh my God, I?ve just been violated.??

And then the trooper performed the same procedure on Ashley Dobbs without changing her gloves.

After the body cavity searches turned up nothing, Angel Dobbs was given a sobriety test, which she passed. The women were then given a ticket for littering and allowed to leave.

On the side of the road in plain view of the dashcam and passerby's? That is just wrong and probably an invasion of privacy.

Without changing gloves? And in full view? I hope she gets severely disciplined.

Stupid police lady. She should get suspended without pay for like 6-12 months. If that was not standard precedure that is.

OK where I think all smokers who throw their butts on the ground deserve such treatment. I believe citizens arrest of the officers involved should be the rule.

well, if the whole thing has been filmed on the dashcam of the patrol car, the officer(s) in question are heading towards serious disciplanary (if that's spelled correctly) action.

Seems like the kind of thing they'd need a warrant to do?

That's messed up. Very unsanitary that's for sure, the female cop didn't change gloves for the next person, not to mention that the same hand was used to fiddle with the @ss then ######. I'd sue for sure. That's just sick.

she should get fired and never be allowed to work in enforcement again. her actions prove she has no respect for the public.

Totally wrong.

You must use different gloves for each cavity, and person, plus the proper procedure is to take them back to the police station for cavity searches, not do them roadside. Also, cavity searches need more probable cause than the women acting weird or a funny smell - those can have many legal causes. Some young women have weird as s default setting, and there are perfumes that smell like weed to me :p

Dumb cops - hope they get hammered

Insane. At the ROAD SIDE?! Surely this is something that has to be done back at the station, with a warrant too. That police officer, I'd hope, is about to lose their job.

There is no way the thought of actually finding anything on the side of the road went through the officers minds, It looks all to be a kick for them.
