Fifth lawsuit filed against Hamilton County deputy
Another lawsuit has been filed against a Hamilton County deputy for a traffic stop that happened in April.
Channel 3 first reported the traffic stop involving Deputy Daniel Wilkey last month.
Court records show Deputy Wilkey pulled over a car with six minors inside for an alleged window tint violation.
The parents of two of the teens have now filed lawsuits in Hamilton County Circuit Court claiming Deputy Wilkey "groped" two of the females that were in the vehicle and strip-searched a male minor during the traffic stop.
The lawsuit also names a second Hamilton County deputy, Tyler McRae.
The latest lawsuit is asking for $11-million in damages.
In total, five lawsuits name Deputy Wilkey.
