Florida city pays $25,000 to woman ordered to shake out bra during a traffic stop

A Florida city has paid a $25,000 settlement to a woman ordered to shake out her bra during a traffic stop.

The Ledger in Lakeland, Florida, reports a check dated July 7 was paid to 29-year-old Zoe Brugger.

Authorities say Brugger was pulled over by Lakeland police officer Dustin Fetz in May 2013 for a broken headlight. Silent video taken from the patrol car shows her being forced to shake out her bra multiple times in a search for drugs. The officer also searched her car over her objections. No drugs were found.

Fetz has not been reprimanded for the search itself, but he served a one-day suspension for not having his microphone on.

City officials say they're waiting for an executed release, freeing them from a lawsuit.
