A woman arrested at the May 6 Donald Trump rally in Omaha filed a complaint with the Omaha Police Department on Tuesday, alleging unprofessional behavior on the part of a sergeant who took her into custody.
Tanny Oliver, 23, and a handful of other Trump protesters arrived at the rally as it ended and rallygoers were exiting. She said she stepped away and behind something, to go to the bathroom outside.
While her pants were down, she said, officers grabbed her and took her into custody.
Oliver, who declined to share a copy of her official complaint, said the sergeant told her “I like you” as she was handcuffed and told another person, “I just think she’s cute.”
Police arrested Oliver on suspicion of indecent exposure, disorderly conduct and terroristic threats. Authorities allege in a police report that she threatened the sergeant and said she was going to kill him.
Oliver says that was a misunderstanding; she said she told the sergeant, “You wish you could put a bullet in my head, huh?” The sergeant responded by winking at her, she said.
An Internal Affairs sergeant met with Oliver on Tuesday, a statement from Omaha police said. An internal investigation will begin as a result of the complaint.
