A woman suing police for alleged defamation, false imprisonment, malicious prosecution, assault and battery, and intentional infliction of emotional distress in HOUSTON included in her allegations that she was forced to listen to RUSH LIMBAUGH "make derogatory comments about black people" while she was being arrested and transported in a patrol car.
The HOUSTON CHRONICLE reports that BRIDGETT NICKERSON BOYD was arrested OCTOBER 4, 2010 for driving on the shoulder of a freeway -- she said that her car had broken down -- and then drove to the hospital with the police car following her when her heart began racing. She was treated and then taken into custody.
Her suit claims that she was arrested without cause; the charges were dismissed by a magistrate. The suit was filed last MONDAY in federal court against Sheriff's Deputy MARK GOAD and HARRIS COUNTY, TX.
