Man literally gets anally probed after being pulled over for a routine traffic stop for suspicion of drugs. Doctors find nothing.

Rack up another one for the War On Drugs!

Police in New Mexico pull a guy over for a routine traffic stop.  They ask him to step out of the car.  For some reason, the guy is holding his buttocks.  Cops are suspicious he has drugs hidden inside his anus and get a search warrant for an anal probe.  Insanity ensues.

1. Eckert’s abdominal area was x-rayed; no narcotics were found.

2. Doctors then performed an exam of Eckert’s anus with their fingers; no narcotics were found.

3. Doctors performed a second exam of Eckert’s anus with their fingers; no narcotics were found.

4. Doctors penetrated Eckert’s anus to insert an enema.  Eckert was forced to defecate in front of doctors and police officers.  Eckert watched as doctors searched his stool.  No narcotics were found.

5. Doctors penetrated Eckert’s anus to insert an enema a second time.  Eckert was forced to defecate in front of doctors and police officers.  Eckert watched as doctors searched his stool.  No narcotics were found.

6. Doctors penetrated Eckert’s anus to insert an enema a third time.  Eckert was forced to defecate in front of doctors and police officers.  Eckert watched as doctors searched his stool.  No narcotics were found.

7. Doctors then x-rayed Eckert again; no narcotics were found.

8. Doctors prepared Eckert for surgery, sedated him, and then performed a colonoscopy where a scope with a camera was inserted into Eckert’s anus, rectum, colon, and large intestines.  No narcotics were found.

Maybe the guy had to go to the bathroom really bad?  Maybe that’s why he was holding on to himself like that?  Why would you automatically think he’s smuggling drugs?  I’d say this would definitely qualify as a violation of his 4th Amendment Rights.
