(Scroll down for video) A woman was left traumatized after police officers illegally entered her home and arrested her while she was naked.
The woman’s daughter recorded the incident, leading to the officer retiring from the police force.
Esmeralda Rossi is suing the city of Chandler, Arizona, after officers broke into the house and handcuffed her while naked.
Rossi, who was never charged with a crime, said that the officers knocked on her door while she was in the shower.
Her daughter came to the bathroom and informed her that the officers were looking for her.
The officers told Rossi that they came in response to a complaint about an argument she had with her former husband.
Rossi was in a bath towel and told the officers that she wants to get her cellphone so that she can record their conversation.
Officer Doug Rose and his partner followed her into the home. Rossi admitted that she had an attitude with the police.
Both Rossi and her daughter began recording the incident.
The daughter’s video shows the officer grabbing Rossi and ordering her to place her hands behind her back. At that point, her towel fell to the floor and she was completely naked.
Rossi cried and begged officer Rose to stop touching her as he forced her hands behind her back.
His partner then ordered her daughter to get her clothes.
A police investigation revealed that the officers entered the home of Rossi illegally.
Officer Rose was not arrested, but he resigned from the police force during the investigation in order to keep his pension.
