Woman Who Was Arrested After Reporting Her Rape Is Suing the Police Officer for False Imprisonment
An Ohio police officer is being sued after telling a woman who was allegedly raped while drunk that she should have known her limit.
The alleged victim filed suit Monday against Adrienne Brown, the officer who, after scolding the victim, arrested her instead of taking her to the hospital, WLWT reports.
The woman, who has not been named, says she called a cab after a “girls night out” because she had been drinking and did not want to drive. But instead of taking her to the hotel where she was staying, the cab driver took her to an abandoned parking lot in the city’s west side, got in the backseat, and choked and raped her. He then left her in the street and fled, the Associated Press reports.
The alleged victim flagged down two passersby, who helped her call 911.
