Oh look, Lakeland florida police on another power trip. This time, they have added sexual assault to their job description. This is where I would open fire. Lakelandman, do you gamble? I can't wait till the not guilty verdict is handed down when somebody blows these ******** away and gets an all woman jury, just like Zimmerman.
Nowadays the best solution is to get a female cop to search a female suspect. If none are available, get witnesses before searching the female, although going hands on with a female always opens the door to lawsuits no matter if everything is done correctly. Other option is to have them pull their bra away from their shirt without having to go hands on with them. That method may sound weird but is far from illegitimate.
But of course the woman driving with no driver license is the victim here. Most criminals are actually victims these days.
Broken headlight is probable cause to search for drugs? I don't think so. Making the lady bare her breasts to further search for drugs? Wow. In Utah the boyfriend would have shot the officer and the jury would have given him an award. To do that kind of search get a woman officer. No exceptions. Unless you have a drug sniffing dog available. This is just totally unbelievable. Maybe I'm old fashioned but men, even cops don't get away with that Crap out here. Not and keep their jobs (at least I hope that is the case).

Touch my wife's breast and you will be laying on the ground bleeding out.
When you read the story he did not touch her, she also had a suspended license. He had her raise her shirt, and as Deserteagle pointed out, shake her bra out. Was he overstepping his bounds and violating her constitutional rights, probably. She initially consented to a search but retracted consent during and he did not stop the search. I agree he was on a power trip and fishing for narcotics. Thing with fishing is you don't always get what you're looking for. This could have been bad had she been carrying in one of those "Flash Bang" bras, and shot him. This is a case where a citizen allowed an officer to trample her rights. I'm not trying to blame her but its an example of how the sheep will submit to authority. Anyone who understands their rights knows that. Will he be disciplined yes, but it will most likely be for leaving his audio equipment in the car, or failing to stop the search when consent no longer existed rather than a sexual assault.
Guns.??? What Guns???
the best thing you can do if ordered out of your car by a cop is to lock your car's doors so the cop cannot conduct a search of it's interior without a huge hassle.
Just guessing he probably thought "those can't be real" so figured she had to have something else up there.
----As far as searching the borrowed car, how did she know her friends did not have a little something special hidden in the car. Since it was not her car and she told him as much, I don't blame her for telling him she did not give him permission to search the car. It was apparent from the article that he was so "authoritarian" that he made her do what she did not want. The fact she had a suspended or expired DL would have already made her feel vulnerable before the LE acted like Rambo. Just ny .02.
