Cops Assault And Arrest Woman for No Reason, Leave Her Cuffed and Naked in Public for 30 Minutes

“They pulled me out of the apartment and my towel fell off my head and I started trying to run back inside and the cops come into my apartment”

Candice PadavickMiami, Florida – Candice Padavick of South Florida is suing Miami Beach Police after she was wrongfully arrested, assaulted, and carried through the lobby of an apartment building by police while she was completely naked.

According to court documents recently obtained by NBC, Padavick took a cab home one night several months ago and was unable to pay him with a credit card, so she had to go to her apartment to get him his money.

“It was $16.90. I wont forget. I tried to pay with a credit card and when I tried to pay he said no no I only take cash,” Padavic told reporters.

As the cab driver began to get impatient, he called police in fear that he would not get paid.

One of the security guards in the building allegedly realized what was happening, and gave the cab driver $20, to cover the $17 fee. This exchange is seen on security camera footage from inside the apartment lobby.

The security guard then told the cab driver to call the police to tell them that the issue has been resolved. However, the police ended up arriving at the apartment an hour later looking for Padavic anyway.

Police claim that they did not need a warrant to enter Padavic’s home or detain her because she was intoxicated and argumentative when they came to her door. Police have failed to obtain any evidence to prove that Padavic was intoxicated, even though they had numerous opportunities to check while she was in custody.

Padavic says that the police are lying about what happened to cover up after themselves and place the blame on her.

“They pulled me out of the apartment and my towel fell off my head and I started trying to run back inside and the cops come into my apartment….. And so he’s jerking me around and so I have his arm and my robe hanging off and this is completely open–nothing underneath. And then more cops come up,” she said.

Padavick was detained in public, completely naked for at least 30 minutes, and was abused so badly by police that cuts and bruises were clearly visible after the attack.

Padavic was arrested for resisting arrest, battery on a law enforcement officer, and petty theft for no payment of the taxi ride, but all of those charges were dropped after the arrest.

Officer Gonzalez has said under oath that he didn’t have any clue that there was a possibility that the fee was paid. However, Juan Camona from Oceanside Plaza Security has said that he told police that he paid the fee, but they said that he wasn’t allowed to.

The police officer said I could not give the taxi driver the money because its not right,”  Camona said.

“Given the fact that the security guard paid the taxi driver or even offered to pay the taxi driver, at that point they should have let it go,” Padavicks attorney, David Kubiliun said in a statement.

  • We are beyond tired of police breaking laws they are suppose to enforce! Are you too? If so ‘Like’ this post! (y) Share if you care and please comment!

  • If a cop come in to my home they will get kill fuck that shit

  • If a cop come in to your home you should kill that fucking pig

  • Time to move to Canada!

  • They do not have that fucking right so keep the fuck out

  • We’re hearing more stories but that doesn’t necessarily mean that the cops are worse.

    • Oh, yay! Thank goodness it’s just business as usual!
      Whew! And here I thought all these people getting beaten, killed or lied about and jailed for years because the cops are criminals was something to be upset about !
      Back to the latest episode of the Kardashians, happy happy !

    • They’ve been like this in Black and Latino communities forever…guess it’s a problem now that it’s spreading…

    • It is. It’s escalating. They fear the people, the people fear them. Same in many other sections of community. Simple case of divide and conquer. The police are whipped into a frenzy of fear and given an inflated sense of authority then sent to fight a war that has been planted in their minds. Both sides need to recognise the puppet master and turn our efforts against them. Some police however, are beyond help.

  • The cops are scared the citizens are scared…our society is running scared from itself.

  • They’re not cops anymore, they’re SS troops…

  • As evil losses it’s grip it will grasp harder

  • Security screen doors folks. Keep out all kinds of intruders.

  • Just awful

  • It’s you, Cop been this way for decades white girl.

    • You’re comment is moronic.

    • Great comment Joe Paradise we been going through this mess many years. For the comment the blond made we understand they only know how to have fun .lmao

  • No pics?

  • Fucken Preverts, she’s already naked so they call in cop buddies to check out the naked chick. Why?, you ask… because no real woman in her right mind wants a pig seeing her naked. That’s the only action a cop is gonna get unless they’re forcing a prostitute to do something she doesn’t want to do in exchange for her freedom.

    • Police are horny fucken, and abuse their power . I remember one time a police man was flirting with a nurse after beating an injury suspect. The nurse was Afraid of her job, and left him.

    • When I was homeless in Denver I had the same cop take a special interest in me on two different occasions and although he may have been a nice guy I felt a nervousness about the kind of guy that could arrest me for sleeping on a sidewalk as fast as he would date me.

  • USA A CORPATE FACIST POLICE STATE FROM HELL NEXT FEMA DEATH CAMPS FOR OUR SAFETY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! NOT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • I feel this comment but whenever u get through they still killing,cover ing up many cases and many innocent people. Now send another comment for that.



  • #BringItToTheirFrontDoor

  • Probably just you. I think technology is just finally exposing the bad one’s. In time they will get weeded out and thing’s will get better.

  • you are under no obligation to open the door

  • Fuck the police, and abusing their authories. All police should be serve the same laws as us all. False arrest, will cause police to be falsely arrested too.

    • She is pretty cute too, i can see why

  • Sad to say some of them have no regard for the people they are being paid to serve.

  • Moral of the story, come back with a warrent. Don’t anwser the door.

  • this is over a year old.

  • Welcome to Amerika they do as they please and all the rest of the system covers it up for them.

  • seems like they are using G. Orwells book 1984 as a manifest

    • I think its closer to Fahrenheit 451.

  • sad.

  • There is a new trend, and unspoken agreement uprising in the law enforcement field where fascism is the new way of law enforcing.

  • Jail time for criminal cops!

  • It’s getting worse and will continue to if ppl keep believing that cops can do no wrong. Rarely are cops held accountable for wrong doing. Until that changes, things like this will continue. Ppl need to wake up and speak up.

  • They should be charged wtf

  • This is totally outrageous…false arrest

  • Fucking scum

  • The same thing happened to one of my children, although the police shot him over the 4.00 cab fare. Luckily the pieces of shit were incompetent and only wounded him.

  • I’ll go streaking in front of a precinct if that meant a nice pay day.

  • You know, if they just fired these officers with no hope of ever being involved with Law Enforcement again, thing would start to change. When you keep the bad ones you poison the whole barrel. I think we have reached a threshold where there are so many bad apples in the bunch that its all going to crap. We need a complete dismantling of Police Departments who show even moderate rates of this stuff.

  • Don’t answer your door, don’t go out alone, have a gun handy. These used to be the warnings we used to prevent ourselves from being the victims of criminals. Now it seems the biggest criminals are the pigs! Treat them as such!

  • Just getting caught more often.

  • There is no law that says someone can’t pay your cab fare. Even if she was drunk which I think that was made up too i don’t think it’s illegal to be drunk in your own place.They are just pigs n that’s why they did it. I’m surprised they didn’t try to get her for public nudity too!!


  • Since when is the police a collection agency for the cab company. Oh yes , don’t ever open the door for a cop . Give them your phone number to call , but don’t open the door .

  • Nazi Police State !!!!!!!!!!

  • Police in America are being trained to act like German Nazis and Russian Gestapo. They are breaking down barriers. People are getting brainwashed to accept the new American police force as the enemy of the people. They cant be trusted. They cant be accepted to help or save you or protect you from harms way. The American police have become the number one enemy of American citizens. Your government is to blame for this as Washington Dc has become the traitor to America.

    • nazis didn’t drag people nude into the street… so in reality it’s worse….

    • The Gestapo was Nazi Germany’s police force. The Soviet era KGB would be the approximate Russian equivalent.

    • Ah yes I stand corrected. KGB is what I meant to say. Thanks.TR.

  • How can you knock on someone’s door and arrest them for being drunk in their own home? Don’t open the door if they don’t have a warrant.

  • its the whole establishment that is corrupt , hold on to youre guns america, because its about to get much worse 😉

  • This was a year ago–what was the resolution?

  • this is total bullshit, they need to get these officers out of our police forces, shame on them

  • Anymore it’s is way best to keep a distance from the police goon bags as often as possible. Otherwise start speaking up and putting the police goons in their place.

  • Well at least they didn’t rape her .. What a bunch of idiots. is there any video she’s hot.. jk

  • Now here’s the people the government should be taking guns away from

  • Why are people liking this post??????

  • I live in Miami Beach, and i know we have bad cops. But this article is a year old according to the date next to the reporter’s name. Why is it getting posted now?

    • Prolly cuz its getting close to being finished..the court system takes a looong TE for a civil suit to go through..especially concerning the police having to fork out tax payer mny to ppl

    • If that’s the case, would be great if Free Thought would add an update. Preferably one involving the cops losing their jobs.

  • Wait, did she make no effort to pay the cab driver? It didn’t say anything about her even coming down to find out that the security guard ratified the situation.

    • Hang on Alexander, are you saying you don’t go upstairs to have a shower while your cabbie waits downstairs for you to pay?

    • Who cares – the security guy paid it. It doesn’t matter who pays. Just like picking up the tab in a restaurant for someone who forgot their wallet (which I’ve seen & thought was a very kind thing for someone to do).

    • Robert Kalnins good im glad someone else found thuis to be pretty inconsiderate, obviously it doesn’t excuse the cops heinous reaction but i think it shows that this woman is totally self absorbed.

    • Michele Hofstetter no it does kind of matter who pays, as this woman went to her apartment and clearly had no intention of paying the cabbie, which is a pretty shitty thing to do.

  • What a bunch of bastards! But calling them names is not going to change their behaviour! It is frustrating watching them, time and time again, abusing people and getting away with it.

  • I bet someone pays for her cab next time!

  • We need to start calling this what it is. Domestic terrorism of the blue kind.

  • Aaannndd its Florida ha-ha…Texas, Florida, and Missouri..the big three horrible police states..every time u see something like this it’s always one of those three states..usually Florida though..stay the hell way fromtl there

  • They are SOOOOOOO out of control!! But at least they will get PAID administrative leave for their law breakin’.

  • what happened to “serve and protect”??

  • “The police officer said I could not give the taxi driver the money because its not right,” Camona said.
    As if a cop has the slightest inkling of what is or isn’t right, or even cares for that matter.
    So long as they have an opportunity to resort to violence, especially against a woman.

  • I cant share this today, because it’s veterans day, so I’ll save it and share it tomorrow.

  • Hææ?

  • now you’re not happy with the Obama change? welcome to Obama’s America… that’s what you get for voting for him

  • If she paid her taxi to begin with or at least in a timely fashion, she wouldn’t be in this mess, get it together people

  • Cops are out of control!!!

  • Its you, because they’ve been animals for decades, you’ve never seen them releasing dogs on innocent women and children during the peaceful marches for equal civil rights under the law? The law enforcement apparatus in America is an Army of the elite, its not here to protect and serve the average citizen of this country.

  • Gloria Gerlich Garrett, didn’t one of our republican representatives say when that happens a woman should “…. Just lay back and enjoy it!” ?

  • Sue the hell out of those nazis…

  • But you trust them with guns

  • She shouldn’t have been drunk. Her fault entirely.

  • people you are being tested, to see how far you can be pushed. There is a reason for this. And no one is gonna like it.

  • What I want to know is how they figured this woman assaulted them, when she was in her apartment, and they dragged her out when there is no evidence that a crime had been committed. About the security guard? He can give his money to anyone he wants, without police approval, at least for the time being.

  • It’s not you – they ARE getting worse. And why shouldn’t they? If they commit a crime – they give the offender a paid vacation (suspension with pay) investigate themselves and find they are innocent of wrongdoing – end of story – and after the nice little paid time off, they go back on the prowl, in surplus military armored vehicles, wearing military tactical equipment including body armor, automatic fire riot guns, etc. – all given to them by the Feds as surplus – and resume shooting or beating to death anyone or anything they please with no penalty. The Government even provides Trained Killers with raging cases of PTSD as fodder for their recruiting drives. Yes, the Military Trains Killers – DUH – I happen to be one of them. Add to this the States and the Federal Government turning a blind eye to the whole deal – and what could possible go wrong with this scenario? Word Up.

  • Can you say lawsuit!

  • Get money!

  • That is what they call in police jargon, a PC= pu**y check.

  • OMG

  • Sue them til their balls fall off …

  • Mikey Karr this too

  • It is time we the people start hitting these police harder and harder this is total indecent they probably went back to the station bragging that they arrested an naked woman and laughed about it just like those grammar school bullies used to do to their victims, everyone of those cops should be made to march nude through the town square at noon. and be broadcast on the evening news uncensored.

  • It’s debtor’s prison for you young wench! …for failing to pay the Crown’s duly appointed carrier for all transport upon the King’s highway!

  • I usually enjoy, well, maybe ‘enjoy’ isn’t the correct word, but, I am generally interested by the articles posted here, and often share them and reference the articles in other conversations. However, I have noticed recently a recycling of old stories, like this one from November LAST YEAR, and am left wondering the purpose of this. I read the article, and it doesn’t appear to contain any new information, it is simply a repost of the original November 2014 article. While I am all for keeping the public informed, and holding the police accountable for their actions, I am left wondering if The Free Thought Project is, in fact, stirring things up for clicks, or is the motivation more nefarious…to keep the tensions alive and the hatred burning. Just something I’ve noticed that makes me go hmmmmmm……

  • hopefully she’ll get enough to buy her own home. and hopefully she’ll be smart enuff to purchase outside fla.

  • Joe Anthony

  • This is ridiculous they wouldn’t let this woman put on clothes what a bastard should be put behind a desk till he quits or retires.

  • That is messed up

  • What are police but regular people in uniform? They’re not a special genetic breed; just regular folks. So, think about the implications – anyone wearing a badge, essentially!

  • They’re just following up from the days at the ‘camps; you know, when Hitler was doing his part [what’s the bet he had a deal with the then president of the US]

  • James

    If that was my wife. I would personally make those officers “squeal like a pig”

  • vegas jack

    You do this to one of my loved ones officers, you best keep an eye open 24/7…
