On January 2, 2013, David Eckert rolled through a stop sign in a Wal Mart parking lot in Deming, New Mexico.  Now, you’d expect this to end with Eckert receiving a ticket and then going on his way, but not in Deming.

An officer claimed that he noticed Eckert’s “posture to be erect” and that “he kept his legs together.”  The officer suspected Eckert of carrying drugs, and that’s where the nightmare began.

Eckert then says he was forced to have three enemas and eventually a colonoscopy at 1 a.m. on Jan. 3, 2013. No drugs were ever found.

This was all done after an x-ray revealed he was not carrying drugs or anything else.  If you want more details (which get a little graphic), you can follow the link below.

Eckert has filed a lawsuit.  Good for him.

Apparently, this is becoming SOP in Deming.  Travelers and residents beware.
