A 28-year-old woman, who fell out of a moving LAPD police car, has accused an LAPD officer of sexually assaulting her while she was handcuffed in the back seat of the vehicle.

This is just another piece to an already suspicious account. At the time of the alleged assault, the woman was taken into custody on suspicion of public intoxication on March 17.

After being taken into custody, the woman testified that one of the officers climbed into the back seat and began, “assaulting me, molesting me” after a brief stop.

During her disposition, the woman said, “he was grabbing my left inner thigh, you know, trying to – I’m assuming opening my legs, touching my chest, grabbing at it.”

Once the vehicle began moving, around three in the morning, a security camera captured the patrol car pass out of view. Moments later it can be seen on the security camera footage a woman wearing only an undergarment over her chest lying motionless in the street.

The officer’s report stated that the woman had fallen out of the vehicle as the patrol car accelerated to about 10 mph after stopping at a traffic light. The video footage contradicts the officers’ account to the paramedics.

The woman suffered a shattered jaw, severe headaches, and general pain.

Cmdr. Andy Smith, a spokesperson for the LAPD, said an internal investigation was opened immediately after the LAPD Internal Affairs Division was alerted to the woman’s allegations.  The investigation remains open at this time. The two officers remain in the field, Smith said in an interview with the Los Angeles Times.
