A Lordsburg man has filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court in Albuquerque alleging that what started as a routine traffic stop ended with him being detained for 15 hours by police and subjected to eight invasive body searches, including a colonoscopy, in a futile attempt to find drugs.

The plaintiff, David W. Eckert, 54, alleges that Deming police officers and Hidalgo County sheriff's deputies, using an invalid and expired warrant, took Eckert to the Gila Regional Medical Center in Silver City where he was subjected to two digital rectal exams; two X-rays, one of them to his chest area; three enemas, after which a hospital nurse and a police officer witnessed each of his bowel movements and examined his stools; and a forced sedation and colonoscopy.

The incident that led to the lawsuit occurred about 2 p.m. on Jan. 2, as Eckert was leaving the Walmart parking lot in Deming and failed to come to a complete halt at a stop sign. Deming Police officer Chavez had him exit the vehicle and patted him down "without reasonable suspicion," the lawsuit claims.
Though he was not under arrest during the January incident, Eckert was placed in handcuffs and taken to the Deming Police Department.
