BARROW COUNTY, Ga. -- A Barrow County woman says an off-duty deputy handcuffed and had her strip-searched because of a simple dispute over a power line.
snip Late last year, a letter from the Georgia Transmission Corporation told her a 230 Kilovolt power line was going to go through her property. When surveyors showed up, Worley said she went down the road to talk. She said she didnt threaten anyone, but the Barrow County deputy working with the surveyors didnt see it that way -- the deputy called for backup.
I saw two sheriffs cars drive up, said Worley. She was handcuffed, arrested and charged with disorderly conduct.
I was in the car and I went all the way to the jail handcuffed, she said. Worley was booked into the jail, patted down and strip searched.
She sprayed me down with lice spray. It was so humiliating, Worley said. They made a criminal out of me.

I bet they did...considering the attitude of this power company and the local cops.

How does she like being lice-free?

Is this the same town in Georgia where they imprisoned a McDonald’s worker for too much salt on a burger?
