Woman Tumbling Out Of Police Car Says She Was Being Sexually Assaulted


A woman who was shown on camera tumbling out of a moving LAPD squad car last year said she fell out of the vehicle to avoid being sexually assaulted by her arresting officer.

KCAL9′s Stacey Butler spoke to the woman’s attorney, Arnoldo Cassillas.

The alleged victim, Kim Nguyen, a 27-year-old pharmacist, says she was handcuffed in the back of a squad car when an officer began to sexually assault her in the early morning hours of March 17, 2013. Nguyen said the officer’s negligence also caused her to tumble out of the vehicle.

Video of the incident appears to show Nguyen sprawled on the ground with her dress removed from the waist down.

She said officers pulled up and placed her in the back of a patrol car — for allegedly being intoxicated — and left the men behind.

In a deposition taped this past December, she claimed the officer who was in the back seat with her started grabbing her left inner thigh and began opening her legs. Nguyen says the officer touched her chest and pulled her ears to get her closer to him.

Cassillas told Butler his client spent two weeks in the hospital and her jaw had to be wired shut. She lost all of her teeth.

The LAPD told Butler they would not comment on pending litigation.

    Some years back when I was assisting my friend training self-defense, I approached a group of LAPD officers in Westwood, CA offering special classes for them on Brazilian Jujitsu so they can subdue criminals without killing them. They laughed and said: No, we’ll just shoot them!

    Hmmm, A pharmacist, and an LA cop, Who to believe? I believe her. He needs castrated. We do that to errant cattle and this bullshit cannot continue.

    Na. It’s not the litigation. It’s the thin blue line of silence. Assuming it happened like she said maybe LA needs to check and understand the difference between men who need to be behind the badge and those that need to be behind the bars. Cop or no cop if you rape a woman or sexually assault her in the line of duty you need to be shot. Because you bring rightful dishonor to the badge and besmirch every single officer who DOES carry out their duty honorably and with love for the public they serve.
