Here's the Headline:

Man Claims He was Anally Probed 8 Times Following Traffic Stop for Drugs 

And here's the outline of the story. (You can read the whole sordid tale here.)  New Mexico cops stop a guy named David Eckert for rolling through a stop sign by a Wal-mart. They say he's got clinched buttocks when he gets out of his car, therefore he must be concealing drugs in his anal cavity. OK. Cops get a judge to give them a search warrant to look up the guy's ass. Here's a quote from the story that tells the rest: 
Eckert’s abdominal area was x-rayed twice, doctors stuck fingers in his anus twice, he had three enemas inserted anally and had a colonoscopy performed. No drugs were ever found during the search. 
Eckert consented to none of these searches. The chief cop says: “We follow the law in every aspect and follow procedures and protocols we have in place.” The Nazis had protocols and procedures in place too. Eckert, reportedly permanently "terrified," is suing the bastards and the city that employs them. I hope he collects huge.
