INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — A woman says in a lawsuit she went into an asthma attack and was hospitalized after an Indiana state trooper ignored her pleas that she couldn't breathe after he pulled her over.
Sally Still says she was driving home to retrieve an inhaler on July 4, 2011, and told Trooper Clint Hetrick about her medical condition when he stopped her.
The lawsuit says Hetrick ignored her pleas for assistance and threatened to break her car window with an iron bar when she rolled it up to seek relief in the car's air conditioning.
The trooper allegedly called an ambulance when Still appeared to go into an acute pulmonary attack and passed out. The suit alleges Still received oxygen treatments at the hospital before being released.
State Police declined to comment.
