A state trooper has been fired for performing a body cavity search on two women wearing bikinis driving back from the beach. She is the second trooper fired this year for cavity searches.Watch the video:
The search took place in Brazoria County just south of Houston.
Two women say they were headed back from a beach trip on Memorial Day of last year when a male Department of Public Safety trooper pulled them over for speeding.
Once stopped, the DPS trooper said he smelled marijuana. He searched the car and claims to have found a small amount.
He ordered a female trooper to come to the scene to do a cavity search. She searched both women inside a patrol car on the side of the road. By this time a male sheriff's deputy was also on the scene.
The female trooper has since been fired. The male trooper was suspended. The women involved are suing.
