Miss Nevada 2007 is suing the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. The department had a warrant for apartment “C” but knocked down the door of apartment “A.” When they entered, Calenche Ranae Manos was covered with only a bed sheet.
The deputies ordered Manos “to get out of bed and then watched as she attempted to do so,” a complaint states. Manos’ fiancé, Eric Otto Ryder, was also in bed.
Allegedly, one of the officers joked that the beauty queen would have a good story to tell at Thanksgiving.
According to KTLA in Los Angeles, Manos has accused the deputies of sexual harassment and is seeking damages for negligence, false imprisonment and civil rights violations.
Manos’ claims, should they prove true, serve as another example of police abusing their power and acting irresponsibly.
