Houston motorist sue DPS over search of 'womanly parts' (Brazoria County)

A state trooper has been fired and another suspended for their roles in a full cavity search last year of two motorists on the side of the road on Texas 288.

Brandy Hamilton, 27, and Alexandria Randle, 26, were headed home to Houston from Surfside on Memorial Day 2012 when Trooper Nathaniel Turner pulled them over for speeding, according to a lawsuit filed Friday in the case.

The women spent the day at the beach with family and friends.

Turner radioed for a female officer, Trooper Jennie Bui, to check out the women. The search went beyond checking pockets, and no standard pat-down of the women was conducted, the lawsuit alleges.

Note: The emphasis of names in the article was determined by me. Apparently the DPS officers heard about a similar story in Irving so they wanted to join in on the YouTube video competition?

The women in the Irving incident received a $185,000 settlement if it helps somebody to gauge the damages.

1. I hope the two plaintiffs take the county

for half a million dollars. They were publicly raped and humiliated. And the second plaintiff was intentionally exposed to the first plaintiff's germs by the trooper. That is disgusting, stupid, and unnecessary.

I wonder what the drug paraphernalia was? A matchbook? I own hemostats. I guess that is drug paraphernalia as well.

2. What the heck are they trying to hide?

Both of the women were in bikinis?

Here is the Houston KHOU report with video:
