Alexandria Randle and Brandy Hamilton were driving home from the beach on Memorial Day in 2012 when they were pulled over for speeding and subjected to full body cavity searches.

Two Texas women are suing the Texas Department of Public Safety for a “humiliating” full body cavity search they had to undergo after being pulled over for speeding. They recently sat down with news station HLN to recount that horrible day in 2012.

The two women, Alexandria Randle and Brandy Hamilton, both in their late 20s at the time, were returning from the beach on Memorial Day, after hanging out with friends and family, when they were stopped for speeding. The officer claimed to smell marijuana in the car and ordered them to step out of the vehicle. One of the women asked to put on a dress, since she was just in her bikini, but was told, “No, don’t worry about it.”

The male trooper did find a small amount of marijuana in the car, according to HLN, and decided to call in a female officer to conduct a full body cavity search on the women.

“If you hid something in there, we are going to find it,” the female officer could be heard saying in the video.
