    Wandering Eye: The CDC gets it wrong on e-cigs, more trouble for the B-1, and more
    A Baltimore man filed suit on Sept. 5 against three Baltimore police officers, seeking monetary damages for a strip and anal cavity search he says police performed on him on the sidewalk on the 200 block of North Highland Avenue. As the D.C. Clothesline reports, Lyons was on his bike on May 3, 2013, heading to a park, when police asked him if he had any drugs on him. Lyons said no, and the cops "proceeded to pull down this man's pants, spread his legs, and conduct a cavity search in the middle of the sidewalk in full view of passersby." Lyons is seeking damages for battery, false arrest, false imprisonment and violations of the Maryland Declaration of Human Rights. "It's as simple and outlandish as it appears," Isaac Klein, Lyons' lawyer, told the website. Lyons "was embarrassed and outraged." Named in the suit as defendants are Officer Demario Harris, Officer Keith Savadel, and "Sgt. Martin." Lyons' arrest for drug possession shortly after this incident was not related at all, his lawyer says, and those charges were dropped, as was a handgun charge filed earlier this year. Lyons' co-defendant in last year's narcotics case did plead guilty, according to court records. "According to Klein," the Clothesline reports, "this was yet another negligent error by police who mistakenly arrested and charged Lyons, for which they are filing another civil suit."
