The woman filed a federal civil rights lawsuit Monday against Officer Adrienne Brown. Brown, 33, is on paid desk duty pending an internal investigation.
She didn’t return a request for comment. A police spokeswoman said Brown’s conduct didn’t rise to the level of professionalism expected of Cincinnati police.
A police dash-cam video shows the alleged rape victim sobbing in the back seat of the police car in the early morning hours of Jan. 19 while Brown questioned her and eventually took her to jail. She was booked on charges of disorderly conduct while intoxicated and resisting arrest. The rape is under investigation.
