Forced Rectal Exam

According to AP News, Brian Persaud, 38, says in court papers that after he denied a request by NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital emergency room employees to examine his rectum, he was "assaulted, battered and falsely imprisoned."

Seems Brian didn't want to consent to someone looking up his bum hole when he went in to treat a head injury. His lawyer, Gerrard M. Marrone, said he and Persaud later learned the exam was one way of determining whether he had suffered spinal damage in the accident.

Only in New York Folks....Only in New York.
