Lawsuit: Tennessee Ex-Cop “Forcibly Baptized” Woman After Pulling Her Over To Search For Drugs [VIDEO]

The Chattanooga Times Free Press reports:

A U.S. District Court judge gave the go-ahead to a lawsuit against a former Hamilton County deputy accused of baptizing a woman against her will after a 2019 traffic stop. In addition to ruling that the suit against Daniel Wilkey, 28, may proceed, Tennessee Eastern District Court Judge Travis R. McDonough ruled that several aspects of the complaint against former deputy Jacob Goforth could not continue. Wilkey allegedly called Goforth to witness the baptism and Goforth recorded the incident on his cellphone.

On Feb. 6, 2019, shortly after 9 p.m. Wilkey stopped the woman who was driving through the Soddy-Daisy area. After Wilkey asked her what she had in her car, the woman admitted to having a marijuana cigarette in her pack. Wilkey instructed her to exit her car and he searched her twice. The woman claims Wilkey inappropriately touched her crotch, where he found a “marijuana roach.” Wilkey told the woman that if she allowed him to baptize her, he would let her go with just a citation.
