Police, Doctors Force Man To Undergo Humiliating Enemas, Anal Exams And X-rays
Narcotics search turned up nothing, but man was billed by hospital for EIGHT anal probes; All because he ‘clenched his buttocks’ during routine traffic stop
Nov 5, 2013
Following an innocuous traffic stop, police in Southern New Mexico put a man through an ordeal consisting of cavity searches, enemas and even X-rays after he “appeared to be clenching his buttocks” while stepping out of his vehicle.
KOB Eyewitness News 4 reports that details of the case emerged during a federal lawsuit recently, with medical records and police reports indicating that deputies with the Hidalgo County Sheriff’s Office and police officers with the City of Deming forced David Eckert to undergo an anal cavity search, saying they had probable cause to search for drugs.
His crime? Not making a complete stop at a stop sign.
