Woman Groped By A Police Officer, Accused Of Being Drunk - It Gets Worse

A Utah woman called police after her car was rear-ended while she was driving. She was shocked when officers came and arrested her for Driving Under the Influence. She says she feels violated.

Amanda Houghton says someone rammed into the back of her car at 30 mph while she was waiting at a stoplight. The car was totaled and the young woman called police for help, but when they arrived the issued a field sobriety test.

Houghton was so shaken she said she failed the test, even though she hadn’t been drinking. Police were unsympathetic. They subjected her to a body search and put her in handcuffs.

Houghton said the male officer felt for drugs and weapons around her breast. She felt violated after the incident and is considering suing.

“I don’t’ believe they should have administered the field sobriety tests at all in this case,” said Houghton's attorney, Jonathan Nish. "I think this amounted to an unconstitutional search of a woman without a necessity to do so.”

Nish has filed a request for the court to throw out the DUI charge. The police have not yet dropped the charges, even though blood tests conducted by the police and the hospital that day both showed no drugs or alcohol in her system.
