Deming Police Forcefully Give Colonoscopy to Man While Searching for Weed

This is an actual situation that happened in Deming back in January. A man was pulled over and the officer thought he was clenching his butt. So they decided to do anal cavity searches, x-rays, enemas and more all looking for drugs. No drugs, and now the man is suing.

David Eckert, of Lordsburg, was pulled over for not completely stopping at a stop sign after leaving a Walmart in Deming, NM. When he exited his vehicle, he appeared to be clenching his butt, which made the police think this was probable cause for a search warrant- OF HIS ANAL CAVITY.

Deming Police then tried to take him to the hospital in Deming, but the doctor refused to do the procedure, saying it was “unethical.” They then took him to the Gila Regional Medical Center where the doctors admitted him and proceeded to do 2 x-rays, 3 enemas, 2 anal cavity searches and a colonoscopy. Throughout the entire ordeal, the officers NEVER found any drugs inside Eckert. Now, he is suing for what happened to him. The fact that this can happen to people right in this area is appalling.

My opinion is that David Eckert is about to win a big sum of money pretty soon. The search warrant given was for Luna County, not Grant, where the searches happened. Also, the colonoscopy happened after 1 a.m. when the search warrant expired at 10 p.m. You can  read the entire lawsuit and see the facts for yourself. It also includes a video interview with Eckert’s lawyer.
