Video: Texas Trooper Fired for Roadside Cavity Search
Roadside cavity searches? What’s next?
A female Texas trooper has been fired and her male partner suspended for the roadside cavity search of two bikini-clad woman in Brazoria County in May of 2012.
Brandy Hamilton, 27, and Alexandria Randle, 26, were headed home to Houston from Surfside on Memorial Day when Trooper Nathaniel Turner pulled over their vehicle for speeding, reports the Houston Chronicle.
Turner suspected the two had drugs and requested that Trooper Jennie Bui check the women. Trooper Bui didn’t conduct a standard pat down and instead performed a full cavity search of both women, according to a lawsuit filed by the women.
Trooper Bui allegedly didn’t change gloves between the searches, reports KHOU. No drugs were found during the stop.
