Cop Arrests & Jails Woman For Warning Drivers of Speed Trap
Chris | InformationLiberation
A cop in Houston arrested a woman for holding up a tiny sign warning drivers of a speed trap. The cop allegedly searched the woman without her consent, accused her of "obstructing justice," threatened her with 3 to 5 years in jail, then made up a lie she was standing in the street and "was a danger to herself and others," a claim which the woman vehemently denies.
A woman tried to save drivers from getting ticketed by police and instead ended up in jail herself. Now she claims she was wrongfully arrested.
It all happened as officers were clocking speeders and pulling them over last week near downtown. Natalie Plummer now fears police retribution. She says she was just trying to get people to stop driving so fast, and that instead of being seen as helpful, she was arrested for it.
[...]Plummer claims one of the officers drove up, jumped from his car and started pulling at her backpack. She says he searched it without consent, and then arrested her.
"He was telling me he was taking me to jail for obstructing justice, that was an automatic three to five years," Plummer recalled.
