Police officers humiliated an innocent man in Deming, New Mexico while searching for drugs they never found. According to a report by KOB News 4, Davide Eckert was stopped by police after he left Wal-Mart on Jan. 2. Police told Eckert’s that he failed to completely stop at a stop sign.

But during the traffic stop, police officers Bobby Orosco and Robert Chavez claimed that Eckert was clinching his buttocks. They believed he was hiding drugs in his anal cavity and detained Eckert until they could get a search warrant from the deputy District Attorney. The officers obtained a search warrant and took Eckert to a hospital. However, the doctors told the police that it was unethical and would not perform the procedure.

Committed to finding drugs inside of Eckert, the police took him to another hospital, Gila Regional Medical Center. Without consent from Eckert, doctors x-rayed Eckert’s abdominal area; performed an anal exam with their fingers; penetrated Eckert’s anus and inserted an enema three times and caused him to defecate in front of police and doctors each time; doctors performed another x-ray; and they sedated him and performed a colonoscopy. Drugs were never found.

Eckert said the 12-hour ordeal left him humiliated. He is currently suing each police officer, The City of Deming, the Deputy D.A., and Gila Regional Medical Center. The officers involved have not been charged.
