LOS ANGELES (KTLA) -- A former beauty queen is suing the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department after she says deputies kicked down the wrong apartment door, pointed guns at her and her fiancee and watched as she got out of bed, naked.
Calenche Ranae Manos, a former Miss Nevada 2007, says in her lawsuit that the incident happened on the night of November 15, 2011.
Manos and her fiancee, Eric Otto Ryder, say deputies had a search warrant for apartment "C" but entered their unit -- clearly marked as apartment "A."
"At that time Ms. Manos was still in bed and was naked," the complaint, obtained by Courthouse News Service, states.
"The sheriff deputies, all of which were male and armed with guns, ordered Ms. Manos to get out of bed and then watched as she attempted to do so," it alleges.
The officers then spent a "significant amount of time" in the apartment before they realized their mistake, according to the complaint.
One of the officers allegedly joked that Manos would have a good story to tell at Thanksgiving.
Manos is seeking damages for negligence, false imprisonment and civil rights violations.
She is also accusing the deputies of sexual harassment.
Obviously a false arrest.
Did they shoot her dog?
What is she doing in bed with a man she isn’t married to? Nobody has any shame any more.
Just another one of those .00001% incidents, pal.
The one in ten million that goes wrong. According to you.
TTIWWP ( Sorry, the one posted don’t cut it.)
Bad either way, but...”ordered” or “dragged” out?
It was no mistake. They wanted to see her naked.
It was no mistake. They wanted to see her naked.
I had just finished getting caught up on Dave Barry's columns on the London Olympics on the Miami Herald web site, and I unconsciously assumed this was another post of hisperhaps a footnote to his coverage of beach volleyball.
“What is she doing in bed with a man she isnt married to? Nobody has any shame any more.”
Assuming there was no /s/ tag intended for your post, I fail to see how this makes it OK for the cops to kick down her door, enter her bedroom armed, and humiliate her.
You can't be serious. Nothing wrong in a committed relationship.
Is that you Deputy Dawg?
STFU, head to Dunkin Donuts and wave your badge around.
Talk about a shrinkage inducer . . .
Fiancee, undress rehersal!
“It was no mistake. They wanted to see her naked.”
So do I...
Were they “Naked” or “Nekkid.” There’s a difference.
Agreed. How far we have fallen. More instructive, we aren’t even capable of discerning the error of the way. Very sad.
So lets get this clear. She’s upset that no photos were posted on the Internet, Hustler hasn’t called, and her career hasn’t really gone anywhere.
While it is a known policy of many, if not most, police forces to NOT hire highly intelligent people I thought being able to read the alphabet might be a minimum requirement.
Unless the guy is going through a sex change, the copy editor here has a problem: Fiancé refers to a male engaged to be married, while fiancée refers to a female engaged to be married. But, in reality, Eric is probably neither of those; most likely, he's just one more guy who sleeps naked with Manos.
They confused an A with a C?
Are we sure that Al Gore wasn’t involved?
I'm sure it is. Some intelligent junior officer who had Goggled her address was probably saying, "I know the warrant says 'C' but trust me, we want 'A'. You'll see."
You are NOT kidding...today if a woman has been banged by fewer than 10 different guys by the time she gets married, she’s for all intents and purposes a virgin;) Defining deviancy downward......
Wait a minute ...
“OK, so do we go for the nude beauty queen behind door “A” or the armed gang banger behind door “C”?”
Most definitely a lawsuit. Somebody should pay for this.
Sue everyone and own their future... destroy their lives... drive them from public service.
Meanwhile - over in Texas - other LEO's got to see Randy Travis naked.
Ah well. Life's not fair sometimes.
Life’s not fair sometimes.
Eric Otto Ryder is one very lucky man!
Not Guilty! But we might have to frisk, just in case.
On the bright side, though, there’ll be no problem with the next 9,999,999.
I did not say, nor did I even suggest that the victim was somehow to blame. That was a conclusion you derived all by yourself.
The previous poster made an observation that I agreed with so before you get yourself all tightly wrapped around your keyboard you should know that I share your observation and concern over the escalation of police/government power and their proclivity to be abusive and reckless in their intrusion upon private citizens.
No its not. You never again will have the same chance to have posted On the Other Hand . . .
Well - At the end of the day - It’s the Same Difference.
(give me a minute - I’ll come up with other tired overused pop statements)
It’s unfortunate that LEOs are insulated from personal liability for their violations.
Cut the check, Dano!
AMEN to that!!
Why does commitment make sex right or wrong? How committed is “committed”? A guy is usually “committed” to stay until the act is done. Maybe until she gets stale or he sees somebody better. Maybe as long as it’s comfortable for him to hang around. Is that “committed”?
Marriage is the promise to stay and to be faithful until death. It doesn’t always work out that way, but if that is the intention then why not make the promise? How true is the intention to stay if you make sure the doors and windows are all wide open just in case you decide to leave? I’ve known couples that cohabitated for years and then when they got married they couldn’t handle it; they had said they were committed before but when they closed the doors behind them they couldn’t handle it. What they had thought was commitment was really just a comfortable situation they knew they could leave at any time.
The cops did wrong here, but she’s pretty stupid if she didn’t just grab the sheet and wrap it around her while she got up.
It’s not that they can’t read, it’s just that they don’t care. If they cared even the least bit about not kicking in the wrong door, then they would take the bare minimum step of double-checking the address, which they never seem to do. So, I can only conclude that it doesn’t bother most police officers at all when they make these mistakes, probably because there are absolutely no consequences for them when they do.
Indeed. Once upon a time when the church held much more sway, and such interpersonal extramarital matters were taken much more seriously, a “betrothed” couple were allowed such intimacies.
