Kamilah Brock (pictured), 32, who was allegedly held for eight days at a mental hospital last year because NYPD didn't believe she owned her BMW because she is black is suing New York. She is arguing that she endured 'unwanted and unwarranted intrusion of her personal integrity, loss of liberty [and] mental anguish' during and after her bizarre encounter with police last year. Brock tearfully recounted the nightmare to PIX 11 on Thursday which began when she was reportedly pulled over by NYPD on September 12 of last year as she was stopped at a traffic light in Harlem.When an unidentified police officer asked her why her hands were not on the steering wheel
she told him it was because she was dancing to her car music and that she didn't think that was a problem because she was at a red light.
'I said I was dancing, I am at a light,' Brock told PIX11.
'He asked me to get out of the car.'
The Huffington Post reports that Brock was then taken into custody and transported to the NYPD's 30th precinct where she was held for several hours but never charged with a crime.
Police told her to go back to the station the next day to pick up her 2003 BMW 325CI.
When Brock, a banker, returned the following day to claim her car she says the police did not believe her when she said that she was the rightful owner of the luxury vehicle.
The Huffington Post reports that medical records show Brock was taken to Harlem Hospital, stripped naked, forced to take lithium, and injected with powerful sedatives.The records also show that personnel at Harlem Hospital tried to make her deny that she owned a BMW, was a banker, and that President Barack Obama followed her on Twitter.
