Twelve years ago, Damaris Rawlins was arrested for driving under the influence in Kansas City and was taken to the local drunk tank. Upon arrival, she engaged in passive resistance and went limp. The police carried her to a cell, where she said that they slammed her into the wall and floor of the cell and assaulted her. She kicked an officer's shins three times (in self-defense, of course).
She was convicted of battery of a police officer after her attorney allegedly refused to submit photographs of her injuries to the court and after the judge denied a self-defense jury instruction.
