Student, 20, sues for $40MILLION after being hauled from her car at gunpoint and arrested for buying beer underage when she only bought WATER
A University of Virginia student who was arrested by Alcoholic Beverage Control agents who wrongly believed she’d illegally bought beer when in fact she only had bottled water is seeking $40 million in a lawsuit filed Tuesday. Elizabeth K. Daly, 21, pictured in her tearful mugshot after the incident, alleges malicious prosecution, six counts of assault and battery and failure to appropriately train ABC agents. Daly was later cleared when it emerged she was only buying La Croix sparkling water, pictured bottom right from the Harris Teeter supermarket in Charlottesville, pictured bottom left.
There’s a jury I’d like to be on, start looking for beachfront property darling. What the hell were “Alcoholic Beverage Control ” agents doing with F’king Guns??? Over the top, egregious behavior by the state should and must hurt like hell or this crap will never stop. The next time an innocent could be killed.
Isn’t it funny that the same people resist the idea of armed security at K-12 schools?
In November, the ABC admitted that the agents violated department policy during the arrest.
The agency said corrective measures against the agents had been taken but declined to specific steps were taken, as policy prohibits the release of individual personnel information and disciplinary proceeding results.
Right, pull my finger.
