Dana Holmes, a Chicago-area woman arrested in May for drunk driving, is now suing county police for what she says was an illegal, humiliating strip search by four officers that was all caught on video…

Dana Holmes was nearly three times over the legal blood alcohol limit when she was pulled over and taken to county jail, where surveillance footage shows her being pulled to the ground by a female officer and three male officers.

The 33-year-old was stripped completely of her clothes and left naked in a cell alone, where she cried on the floor for several minutes before police tossed her a ‘padded suit.’

Arrested: Holmes was also taped as she was arrested May 18 for driving at nearly three times the legal limit

Holmes was transported to the county jail by local authorities who made no note of any combativeness. Footage of her DUI arrest released to the media shows her cooperating and the local authorities made no note of her resisting behavior.

However, Lasalle County police say local cops informed them she was ‘being  mouthy and causing problems’ according to the Chicago Tribune.  It is at the county jail where things take a turn. Holmes is shown being searched against a wall by a female officer as male officers watch.

Resisting? Police say footage shows Holmes kicking them. Holmes denies it. While that remains unclear, laws covering strip searches are explicit

At one point, one of her legs moves. Lasalle police say the footage, which has no audio, shows Holmes kicking them.  Holmes is then taken to the ground by officers and footage shows her being stripped of her clothes by four officers and tossed into a cell.

While it’s unclear what led police to strip Holmes, laws regarding strip searches are clear. Under Illinois law, a suspect may only be stripped by an officer of their same sex and never in the presence of anyone not participating in the search. Read more at MailOnline…
