- Angel Dobbs, 38, and niece Ashley Dobbs, 24, were pulled over on State Highway 161 near Irving, Texas
- Trooper searched car for marijuana before requesting invasive cavity search
- Older woman claims search by trooper Kellie Helleson irritated an anal cyst she was suffering causing ‘severe pain and discomfort’
- Also suing the Texas Department of Public Safety for failing to act on previous complaints about ‘violating’ searches
Two Texas women are suing after state troopers subjected them to a humiliating and invasive ‘roadside body cavity search’ that was caught on video.
Female trooper Kellie Helleson is seen in the footage aggressively searching the private parts of Angel Dobbs, 38, and her niece, Ashley Dobbs, 24, in front of passing cars.
The women, who claim the trooper used the same rubber glove for both of them, were initially stopped by Helleson’s colleague David Farrell on State Highway 161 near Irving after he saw one of them throw a cigarette butt out the window.
Farrell can be heard in the disturbing video questioning the pair about marijuana though he failed to find any evidence of the drug in the vehicle.
However, he requested the women be searches after allegedly claiming they were ‘acting weird.’
The lawsuit states he then tried to ‘morph this situation into a DWI investigation,’ according to the Dallas Morning News.
Angel Dobbs passed a roadside sobriety test and the women were given warnings for littering.
