WTF?!?! White Officer Discovers Hemorrhoid During Illegal Search Of Black Man’s Anus
We wish this was an April Fool’s Joke, but it’s not. If you’re ever in South Carolina, you may want to stay far away from Officer Chris Medlin who searched a civilian’s rectum during a traffic stop. Lakeya Hicks and her husband Elijah Pontoon were pulled over by the officer for driving with a paper tag, an offense that’s not illegal in South Carolina as long as the car is registered.
During the stop, Medlin runs a check on the car and its passengers but comes everything comes back clean. He even has a K9 brought to the scene to smell the car, which also yields no results. After his failing to find anything that would justify arresting the Black couple, the officer begins searching the car before really getting invasive.
The officer, joined now by backup, begin searching the passengers. According to a federal lawsuit filed on the pedestrian’s behalf, a female officer searched Hicks, exposing her breasts to three male officers. Then things got really perverted when Medlin performed an anal exam on the male passenger in search of, what he claims during the recording, is crack.
“We search the car. There ain’t nothing in the car and on a search of him, up in his crotch by the butt, I felt something hard. I lifted his pants and pulled the back of his underwear down and I didn’t see anything but I didn’t get all the way up in there to get no vertical up shot. I just pulled his underwear back, but I didn’t see nothing. But it felt, he said it was a hemorrhoid. It ain’t no. .. it was a rock. It was a rock of crack. It’s gotta be a rock. He’s got it up in his butt.”
Eventually, feeling deflated by his failure, Medlin lets the couple go telling other officers, “I got nothing else to go on. Nothing. Yeah we’re gonna have to cut him loose here.”
