The woman who filed a complaint over her arrest a Donald Trump rally earlier this month spoke out Wednesday.
Tanny Oliver does not dispute her arrest for urinating in a bush at the protest. The complaint is over what happened next.
She claims a police officer who took a photo of her at the protest before the urinating incident, also took more photos of her as she was being booked for indecent exposure and disorderly conduct.
“[Another protester said], ‘What do you mean she's attractive?’ The guy said, ‘Nothing, we're just admiring her. We think she's cute,’” Oliver said. “I went to him, I said, ‘You wish you could put a bullet in me, huh?’”
Oliver believes that statement is the reason police booked her for felony terroristic threats. She spent seven days in jail, before filing a police department complaint Tuesday.
Omaha police confirmed the investigation in this special statement:
An Internal Affairs Sergeant met with Ms. Oliver yesterday and assisted with the initiation of the complaint process. An internal investigation will commence as a result of the filed complaint.
