WASHINGTON, DC (WUSA9) - In a lawsuit announced Tuesday, the ACLU of D.C. formally sued the D.C. Police Department, for what they're calling the "illegal entry" of the home of a transgender advocate. The incident happened on November 16, when police arrested Lourdes Ashley Hunter, the executive director and co-founder of the Trans Women of Color Collective. :barf2:

Hunter was hosting a get-together with other transgender advocates from across the country, in advance to a White House meeting the following day. According to the complaint, the arrest followed a disagreement between Hunter and a neighbor. After complaining about noise, the neighbor claimed that Hunter "pushed" him, and called police.

A six minute Facebook Live video (http://bit.ly/2m7sEBZ), recorded by one of Hunter's guests, showed a standoff between Hunter and police, before she was grabbed, pulled out the door, and arrested. She was released from jail at 3:00a.m., and no charges were filed.
