Indiana Trooper Sued a Second Time for Proselytizing
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — An Indiana State Police trooper faces a second lawsuit accusing him of preaching to citizens while on duty.
Wendy Pyle filed a federal lawsuit in Indianapolis on Tuesday, claiming Trooper Brian Hamilton violated her civil rights when he asked her what church she attended and whether she was saved during a traffic stop in January.
Pyle is represented by the American Civil Liberties Union of Indiana.
The Herald Bulletin reports that Hamilton gave Pyle a speeding ticket and invited her to his church.
Pyle is seeking punitive damages and attorney fees. She also wants a jury trial.
Hamilton, who works out of the Pendleton post, was sued for similar actions during a traffic stop in 2014.
