DEMING, N.M. (CBS Las Vegas) — A New Mexico man claims he was anally probed several times by police and medical officials following a traffic stop.

The victim, David Eckert, claims in a federal lawsuit that officers from the Deming Police Department pulled him over after he failed to make a complete stop at a stop sign outside a Walmart this past January.

When Eckert got out of his car, officers indicated that they believed he was in possession of drugs – in his anal

“They say when he stepped out of his car he was standing in a manner that looked as if he was clinching his buttocks,” Shannon Kennedy, Eckert’s attorney, told KOB-TV.

A judge granted a search warrant to perform an anal cavity search on Eckert shortly after he was taken into custody. KOB reports that a doctor refused to perform the anal cavity search at a Deming emergency room, saying it was “unethical.” Eckert was then transported to Gila Regional Medical Center, where his alleged trauma began. According to the lawsuit and medical records, Eckert’s abdominal area was x-rayed twice, doctors stuck fingers in his anus twice, he had three enemas inserted anally and had a colonoscopy performed. No drugs were ever found during the search.

Eckert did not consent to any of the searches.

Officers were overheard telling the suspect “Them Chili Peppers aint for eatin’ son.”

*Update: In an evil twist to the story, victim gets billed $6000.00 for the procedure in what could possibly be a racially motivated incident.

    I hope he sues the crap out of them.

    Medically unnecessary x-rays, I’d award him $1million each just for that.

      Sadly, it have been done “by the book” and the only two checks-and-balances (judge who should have never given warrant on the given evidence and the doctors [one did the right thing, but not others]) failed. No chance of any restitution. Even when done by obvious force and without any warrant Courts in the past were weak (NYC case of anally-raped by a stick arrestee [innocent of charges to make it worse] – only one out of dozen involved officers got anything more than slap on the wrist…]). We are in Police State and until we replace ruling class by people who will shrink the Government – we will be in such state (Left and Right is irrelevant, BigGovernment=Police State, inevitably).

        actually, it wasn’t quite by-the-book. from another article i was reading on this same story the other day…

        Search Warrant Concerns
        There are major concerns about the way the search warrant was carried out. Kennedy argues that the search warrant was overly broad and lacked probable cause. But beyond that, the warrant was only valid in Luna County, where Deming is located. The Gila Regional Medical Center is in Grant County. That means all of the medical procedures were performed illegally and the doctors who performed the procedures did so with no legal basis and no consent from the patient.
        In addition, even if the search warrant was executed in the correct New Mexico county, the warrant expired at 10 p.m. Medical records show the prepping for the colonoscopy started at 1 a.m. the following day, three hours after the warrant expired.
        “This is like something out of a science fiction film, anal probing by government officials and public employees,” Kennedy said.

        if this shitizen has a half-competent lawyer, he has the police over a barrel on this one.

    Seems no one in government (be it Congress or your local law enforcement) will respect the U.S. Constitution. So here is a little section in it’s entirety called the FOURTH AMENDMENT:

    The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

    There’s even a little thing called Miranda rights too.

    But before you get too worked up there’s also that little section referring to “probable cause“. However I’m not seeing anything that would lead a normal human being to conclude that there’s probable cause to search a guy who is trying to keep is butt cheeks clinched. Because let’s also not forget that New Mexico is where Roswell is! And we all know how much those little green aliens like giving anal probes. 8-0

      Not to mention, that guy probably had to go through Van Horn, Tx to get there so that means he just may have met up with this old, fat sports announcer that hated planes so he had a great big motor home an a love of spicy foods.

      That stuff hurt more going out than in and some of the involuntary clenching possibly could have produced projectiles of a dangerous nature to eyes, ears, sensitive pores, nose, mouth, and any other orifaces such as surgical device access, peircings, cat fetishes, or computer-brain-interface service ports, or any other holes, moles, photovoltaic patches of fungus-ridden skin, so on and so forth, and shit…

    >victim gets billed $6000.00 for the procedure

    You’re making the system look bad. He was billed for a procedure that made him better off. Before he was colonoscopy-free, living an inferior existence. That’s just $500 more a month.

    • Tim says:

      Since you put it like that… “May we have your anus? You did sign the organ-doner’s card?? Of course, by the terms of the card, you should be dead — but I garantee that nobody has had their anus taken out by me and survived {I used to be on the fence about that, but the scientific method has slapped sense into me that it is not possible for one to live long without kidneys}.

      • Tim says:

        I’m most dreadfully embarrassed. Of course, there is no need to diddle with your kidneys when affecting donation of your anus — it’s just that, sometimes, you know, stuff gets in the way. Remember when the neighbor fed your puppy a chicken bone; and he died because metamucile is a poor substitute for a working anus without bones all stuck in it??

        No. You will be able to keep a genetically-representitave slice some of your kidneys. I promise.

    • David says:

      (Some more info from a Local Paper, Silver City Sun News) “That was relevant because Eckert has a reputation among area law enforcement officers for hiding drugs in his anal cavity, acknowledged prosecutor Daniel Dougherty, according to a response to the lawsuit filed by his attorney.

      Eckert denies that claim. Lordsburg court records show a man, bearing Eckert’s name, with several drug cases against him, some of which have been dismissed.

      Hidalgo County sheriff’s deputies responded to the Walmart traffic stop, bringing a drug-detection dog to inspect Eckert’s car. The dog reportedly alerted deputies to the presence of drugs near the driver’s seat in Eckert’s car.”

        If he were really hiding something up there then he would have tried to dissuade the deep, dank diddle by succinctly, clearly, loudly, in english say “Pull my finger” . <– I don't know where that goes??

    A friend of mine who lives in NM had this to say after I sent him a link to the article:

    I read about this two days ago in a local news paper….
    This guy actually has a history of drug arrests and other misc. crimes, He also has a history of putting drugs up his ass, well anal cavity as the local article says, ha!
    I think the cops actually thought he was hiding drugs again and have had enough of him… but unfortunately he came up clean during the invasive procedures.

    I’m still trying to sort out the truth…. had not this guy had a history it would have been different. They took this guy to two different hospitals, First in Deming, NM where he was arrested and those doctors did the right thing and said they did not have the right to invade this guy, they then took him to Lordsburg, NM about 50 miles from Deming they also did not do any procedures base upon principle that they did not have the right to invade this guy, They then drove this guy to Silver City, NM 45 miles from Lordsburg and 55 miles from Deming and they went gung hole, sorry I mean “whole” with invading this guy. This particular hospital in Silver City has a history of financial problems lately amongst other issues. I guess they needed the money, Har

      And it’s not the first time. And it’s not the first time they did it outside the county the guys’ warrants were for.

      Same dog, same hospital, same *probable cause*, different ass..

      “”The station reported that state deputies stopped Timothy Young Oct. 13, 2012, “because he turned without putting his blinker on.”

      Leo, a police dog, alerted on Young, and he was taken to the Gila Regional Medical Center in Silver City, N.M., just like David Eckert, and was subjected to medical procedures including X-rays of his stomach and an anal exam, the TV station said.

      No drugs were found.

      But the TV report said the procedures were done “without consent” and in a county “not covered by the search warrant.”

      The station also reported the drug-sniffing dog’s certification expired in 2011.

      The problems are compounding, with complaints against the doctors involved in the searches being turned over to the state licensing board. Complaints against the officers also have been turned over to the board that licenses police personnel.
