FL driver told by officer to 'pull her bra out from her breasts'

LAKELAND, FL (WFLA) -

An investigative report from the Florida State Attorney calls the actions of a police officer during a traffic stop "egregious" and "demeaning."

The report from State Attorney Jerry Hill details what happened to driver Zoe Brugger on May 21.

Lakeland, FL, police officer Dustin Fetz initially stopped Brugger and her boyfriend, Larry Fields, saying the Toyota they were in had a headlight out.

The investigation revealed that Officer Fetz suspected Brugger might have been carrying drugs, so he asked her to "pull her shirt up, pull her bra out from her breasts, and to shake."

"He made me go through the whole humiliating ordeal with shaking my bra out right there in the middle of this parking lot on Beacon Road," Brugger said. "He told me that he was taking me to Bartow Jail for driving on a suspended license and that they had an x-ray machine there and they were definitely going to find what I had hidden inside me there."

The officer never found any drugs.
