White South Carolina cop conducts anal cavity search on a black man who did nothing wrong, because why not?

Newly released dashcam video shows a white police officer from Aiken, S.C. Police Department conduct an anal cavity search of a black man who committed no crime.

Newly released dashcam video shows a white police officer from the Aiken, S.C. Police Department conduct an anal cavity search on a black man who committed no crime.

According to the Washington Post, police pulled over a car belonging to Lakeya Hicks in October of 2014. Hicks had paper tags because she had recently purchased the vehicle. The tags were current and her license came up clean, but the cops still decided to detain her.

Officer Chris Medlin asked a passenger riding in the vehicle, Elijah Pontoon, for identification. Pontoon, who has a criminal record, was ordered out of the car and handcuffed. In the video, Medlin tells Pontoon that because “of your history, I’ve got a dog coming in here. Gonna walk a dog around the car.”

“You gonna pay for this one, boy,” Medlin bizarrely chirped.

The k9 search turned up nothing, as well as a search of the car by the cops. So instead of letting the driver and her passenger go, they decided to force Pontoon to submit to a search of his rectum.

All they found was a hemorrhoid. According to a federal lawsuit, a female officer was simultaneously searching Hicks and ended up exposing her breasts to the other three male officers – and anyone else who happened to drive by. Again, they found nothing.

Medlin can then be heard speaking on the radio explaining the search:

“We search the car. There ain’t nothing in the car… And on a search of him, up in his crotch by the butt, I felt something hard. I lifted his pants and pulled the back of his underwear down and I didn’t see anything but I didn’t get all the way up in there to get no vertical up shot. I just pulled his underwear back, but I didn’t see nothing. But it felt, he said it was a hemorrhoid. It ain’t no… it was a rock. It was a rock of crack. It’s gotta be a rock. He’s got it up in his butt.”

Medlin sounded disappointed that his expectations weren’t met.

“But there ain’t no way to justify. He said, ‘I got nothing here. That’s a long time ago. I ain’t doing nothing.’ He said it’s a hemorrhoid. I got nothing else to go on. Nothing. Yeah we’re gonna have to cut him loose here.”

Aiken public information officer Capt. David Turno said that the incident was investigated and that Medlin is still actively working as a cop.

“The City of Aiken denies the Plaintiffs’ allegations and is vigorously defending this lawsuit,” Turno said in an email. “We will have no further comment about the facts of this case during the pendency of this litigation.”
