The "crime" even if it had happened was underage possession of alcohol. The officers could have just noted down the license plate and reported it to the real cops so they can arrest her for failure to comply with the ABC officer's instructions. These AzzzBackwardClowns should not have treated this like apprehending some bank robbers trying to flee the scene. The drawn gun is use of excessive force or whatever . Should not have happened.Time to fire the guy. Chop chop.

I don't think I would be "thinking" about suing ---- I would have already filed.

This guy shouldn't just be fired, nor should his partner...

Why is it that police and prosecutors are immune from laws or are allowed to openly violate civil liberties?

This incident indicates that young women in the State of Virginia risk spending the night in jail if they flee from apparent carjackers or kidnappers. ABC and the State of Virginia should take strong, public action to address this situation.

The agents who did this should be fired. The poor girl must have been terrified. She must have thought they were criminals trying to assault her. They acted like thugs, and she responded appropriately. Thank the Lord she was not shot by a trigger-happy ABC agent.

I just called the Harris Teeter store. A manager told me there are no surveillance cameras in the parking lot. There are only cameras inside the store. I've added that to the story.

"may be grounds for legal action" ? Are you kidding me? This event MUST go through the judicial system, and I hope Ms. Daly is Compensated well for having gone through all of this. This may become a benchmark case.

welcome to what was once Virginia. Since there is no trust of the civilian population we are now a police state!

If I had a young daughter, I would tell her that if men approached her at night, flashing something that she had no idea if it was a real badge or not, that she should jump in the car and lock the door and get away as fast as she could and I didn't care if she had to run them over to do it! In my opinion that girl did exactly what she should have done!! If you buy some water and snacks and several men try to stop or grab you at your car......do whatever you have to do to get away. Or shoot their ass if needed to protect yourself. These so called ABC agents acted like attackers, purse snatchers, abductors and any other kind of criminal you would want to avoid in a dark parking lot. I wonder what they would tell their own daughters to do if a group of men approached them in a parking lot???

And if the ABC agents are supposed to be monitoring the sale of alcohol, perhaps it would be helpful if they KNEW WHAT IT LOOKED LIKE! Perhaps a little slide show before they go out on the street to show them what it is, since they think buying a carton of WATER demonstrates criminal behavior. Can't imagine what they would have tried to do to her if she had had the nerve to buy some juicy juice or something....

You are absolutely right especially in Charlottesville where a number of young women have been abducted or worse. These so called law enforcement agents need to be raked over the coals along with their supervisors!

Don't believe everything you read for the truth, and very little of what you hear. So many folks these days are ready to jump on the nearest bandwagon. If these undercover officers are in the wrong, then they should definitely be held accountable, if not, we all need to move on. Our country and quite frankly our community has a lot bigger problems than this. A lot of assumptions and far too much hype here in the media.

I couldn't disagree more.

What could be a bigger problem in our community than a police officer jumping on the hood of a car and pulling a gun on an person accused of buying beer. Even if this woman was guilty, what in your head makes you think that warrants that behavior by what is supposed to be those who are charged with protecting and serving this community.
