Caught for speeding or for being under drugs? Women willing to perform oral sex can get away with it in US, it looks like!.
At least that was the experience of a porn star. She says she's got proof the policeman's own video images of the roadside tryst. The allegations have led to a Tennessee Highway Patrol investigation and the trooper's suspension. (A trooper is a motor-borne or mounted policeman.)
The trooper, James Randy Moss, declined to comment Tuesday. Highway Patrol spokesman Mike Browning confirmed investigators have interviewed the porn star, who is identified on a citation by her real name, Justis Richert.
In her blog, written under the screen name "Barbie Cummings," she goes into explicit detail about the encounter. She says she has photos and video footage of the encounter sent to her by the trooper, as well as a speeding ticket, to back up her story.
The blog had been taken down by Tuesday afternoon, with a note saying the Web site was under construction.
Moss stopped Richert's pink Honda Accord for speeding outside Nashville on May 7, according to the citation. Cummings wrote that when the officer, whom she does not name, asked her if she had drugs in the car, she admitted to having some "happy pills."
"I sometimes have these pills as I may take one or two before going to a club," Cummings wrote in an entry dated May 7. "It was a small amount of pills, nothing major."
When the officer told her a drug charge would mean she could not leave the state, Cummings replied that would be a problem because she frequently travels from Tennessee to Los Angeles for her work.
"I tell him I make dirty movies," Cummings wrote. "He says he wished he had gotten into that industry."
The pair then watched sex videos from her Web site using Moss' laptop computer in his patrol car, she wrote. He took the pills and scattered them in the brush beside the highway. "Then he asks me, what does it cost for someone like me to get anything like you," she wrote. She describes performing oral sex on the officer outside his car in a secluded area. Photos that appear to be video stills she said he took during the incident and posted on her blog show her face but nothing that identifies the man as a trooper.
Browning said he could not confirm whether Richert gave the Highway Patrol pictures or video, but he said Moss did have a video camera in his car. Cummings blames the officer for making trouble for himself.
"This police officer went ahead and told (all) of his co-workers, other police officers, and was bragging about it," she wrote. "He isn't in trouble because of the act itself, but that he chose to let it happen while he was on duty. There was no bribing, no (coercing) or convincing."
