A US man wrongly suspected of hiding drugs in his colon was reportedly given a rectal probe - and billed for the unwanted examination.

Torrence Jackson said he refused consent for the invasive procedure, and suffered internal injuries as a result.
====================================
Doctors at the Syracuse, NY hospital refused to perform the procedure until the cops got a warrant.

He refused consent for the invasive procedure, and suffered internal injuries as a result.

The hospital sent Mr Jackson, 42, a bill for $4,595.12 - adding insult to injury.

In the cops defense, he did have pot & cocaine residue in his car as well as a lengthy criminal record.

Cop should be charged with sexual assault. Hospitals have plenty of non-invasive ways to look internally that they can use when a suspect refuses to consent to penetrative searches.
