Half-naked, hog-tied & humiliated by cops?

Ashleigh Davis is suing a Florida police department for what she says was excessive force and humiliating treatment.  Ashleigh admits she probably deserved to be arrested after refusing orders to leave a music festival.  But she says the officers’ actions went way beyond reasonable force.

According to Ashleigh, her bikini top came off while she was being detained and she says officers carried her through the crowd with her breasts exposed. She claims she was left half-naked for hours inside a holding cell.  She also says that while she laid on the floor at the station an officer put his hand over her mouth to quiet her screams.  She bit the officer’s hand and she claims the officer then slammed her head into the ground shattering some of her teeth.

 We reached out to the Lake County Sheriff’s Office but they say they do not comment on pending or open litigation.  Jane Spoke with Ashleigh and she described her ordeal.
