(iWIDK By Allie Beauregard) – Sloppy seconds shouldn’t occur when the law – and human health – are the matter at hand.
Following video footage of what should have been a routine traffic stop on July 13, aunt and niece Angel and Ashley Dobbs of Irving, TX are suing the State’s Director of Public Safety and 2 state troopers after being unconstitutionally cavity searched – with the same pair of latex gloves – for suspected drug suspicion that they were eventually found innocent of.
One of the women had thrown a cigarette out the window, warranting the original stop by Officer David Farrell. He then questioned the two – very aggressively – about their marijuana use and whether or not there were drugs in the car.
When Angel, the aunt, insisted neither of them had any knowledge of drugs in the vehicle, and that the car actually belonged to Angel’s boyfriend, Farrell called for backup from female Trooper Kelley Helleson who was stationed down the road.
Helleson showed up, in just as an abrasive a manner as her partner, and told the women she would now search them, though they never adhered to it. Helleson did so – both their vaginas and anuses – in full view of oncoming traffic and using the same gloves; when nothing was found on them Helleson proceeded to perform DWI tests, which were passed with flying colors.
The video leaked to NBC, which included audio, not only revealed the alleged molestation, but also an emotional Angel saying, “this has been an eye-opening experience for me. I’ve never been pulled over, never searched like this. I was totally violated over there a few minutes ago… this is so embarrassing to me.”
The women will receive their request for a trial by jury in January in what will be a case profiling actions, according to their attorney, “outside the constitutional grounds by a mile.”
