Safe Mode: On
Cops Force Innocent Woman To Strip

Stephanie Rutter, 25, can be seen being pinned down by four officers after she was stripped naked in a police cell.

The hairdresser had been arrested after a row with her boyfriend. When she arrived at the police station there was a bust-up and her clothes were cut off.

Stephanie was then said to have attacked a woman police sergeant, a woman PC and a male and female detention officer.
But the charges were dropped after her lawyer produced the CCTV at Runcorn Magistrates' Court, Cheshire. Stephanie, from Runcorn, was shown being elbowed in the jaw and pinned to the floor.

The mum of one was then handcuffed and put in leg restraints.

Stephanie said: "It was four on one - and they won. They left me in the cell with blood dripping down my face and covered in bruises. I thought my jaw was broken."
She said she was "overjoyed" at being cleared, adding: "Justice has been done."

She is now taking action against the officers.

A spokesman for Cheshire Police said: "To date no complaint relating to excessive force or inappropriate conduct has been received by the individual concerned or from any of her representatives.

"Ms Rutter was charged with three counts of assaulting Police. Upon her release from custody, Ms Rutter was given opportunity to make representations about any concerns she may have had relating to her treatment and welfare whilst in Custody."

He added that the full custody video was now the subject of an internal review and the matter is being referred to the Independent Police Complaints Commission for assessment.

  • I can't stand watching the disgusting use of force like this on a woman.

  • Looks like police brutality. But there are unanswered questions:

    Apparently, she was arrested for assaulting her boyfriend. Were those charges dropped as well?

    Why did police require a strip search in the first place? Standard procedure? Suicide precaution? Or simple humiliation tactic?

    If the strip search was actually waranted for some reason, then there really isn't an issue here.

    Also, would the Sun give this any attention if she wasn't Page 3 material?

  • Four Points........................

    1) Strip searching is common procedure to look for weapons/contraband. Shoelaces, belts and things of that nature are taken because they can be used as weapons or as an aid for suicide.
    2) The strip searching of women should be done by women. Strip searching of men should be done by men. This is to avoid litigation and lawsuits for sexual harassment and other reasons.
    3) Once the incarcerated person is strip searched and found clean...YOU GIVE THEM THEIR FUCK More..

  • Another great editing job not showing what happened between her and officers while she was standing and then showing the officers holding her on the ground.

  • Looking at her stance at the cell door, she looks a bit of a trouble maker.

  • Uh first off a man is not suppose to be with a women even if their is no female officer on duty, By their rules. Your not suppose to put your hands on 1. How do i know erm My brother in law is a guard in a prison! They all should be fired for the treatment and use of wrong force used. They can be placed on suicide watch if no female officer is on duty. Their was no need for what they did, nor was that 25 yr old fighting with them as the video proves. No pay, just fire their asses!
