A minor traffic stop went nightmarishly wrong for a New Mexico man who was detained by police and forced to undergo a series of anal probes and other medical examinations against his will. News reports say that David Eckert had just finished shopping at Walmart in Deming, New Mexico when an officer pulled him over for failing to make a complete stop at a stop sign. According to the local KOB TV station, federal documents claim that police noticed Eckert clenching his buttocks when they asked him to step outside of the car, indicating that he may have been carrying drugs in his anal cavity.After detaining Eckert and requesting a search warrant from a judge, reports state that 2police took him to a local hospital for doctors to perform a search. The doctor refused, saying the search was unethical. Reports state that police then took Eckert to the Gila Regional Medical Center, where doctors agreed to cooperate.The reports then state that the doctors then performed a wide array of procedures, all without the consent of Eckert, who protested each one. Reports say, first, doctors took an X-Ray of his abdomen, which revealed no narcotics hidden inside the body. Then, doctors performed two anal exams with their fingers, both of which failed to uncover any drugs.After the failure of these searches, Eckert underwent three different enemas and was forced to defecate in front of doctors and police officers. He watched as each stool search failed to uncover any narcotics.Another X-Ray was taken, and, finally, doctors sedated Eckert and performed a colonoscopy. Again, no drugs were found.
