When officers in El Paso, Texas pulled over the woman, who remains unnamed, a drug-sniffing dog indicated she had drugs on her. Cops responded by stripping the woman and then forcing her to undergo a cavity search, which included officers sticking their fingers into her vagina.

The woman’s lawyer, Laura Schaur Ives of the New Mexico chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union, said police had no warrant to do this.
No drugs were found on the woman during the on-site search — but that wasn’t good enough for the officers.
They subsequently took the woman to University Medical Center of El Paso, where she was X-rayed and given another full body search. After probing both her anus and vagina, medical personal found no drugs either.
Schaur said, “First, medical staff observed her making a bowl movement and no drugs were found at that point. They then took an X-ray, but it did not reveal any contraband. They then did a cavity search and they probed her vagina and her anus, they described in the medical records as bi-manual–two handed. Finally, they did a cat scan. Again, they found nothing… Her medical records indicate that she refused consent.”
