North Carolina: Woman kicked out of ladies’ bathroom by police after being mistaken for transgender

Charlotte, NC | A North Carolinian woman was brutally ejected from a ladies’ bathroom yesterday after nearby police officers were alerted by local citizens that a transgender was using a public women’s bathroom.

Linda Hovensky, a 54-year-old resident of Charlotte, was tased multiple times by police officers as she was forced outside of the ladies washroom with her pants down and in front of a large crowd.

“I was taking a crap when police officers started yelling at me and telling me to open the door but I wasn’t finished, so they kicked the door open and grabbed me with my pants down and rushed me outside” recalls the victim, visibly traumatized by the latest events.

“I tried to fight them to at least put my pants back on, that’s when they threw me on the floor and started kicking the life out of me and tased me I don’t know how many times,” she told local reporters in tears.

A “visible threat” to police officers

The woman represented a visible threat to police officers on the scene, explains Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department spokesman, Allan Jones.

“If the lady had not refused to come out peacefully out of the washroom and had explained calmly that she was, in fact, a woman and was in her own right to be there, there would not have been no escalation of violence,” Jones told reporters.

“The woman threatened police officers and that is what made things difficult for her and the agents that intervened” said Jones, during the press conference.

“She was hysterical and represented a possible threat to our officers who followed all proper procedures in this case,” he adds.

Kept in jail for five hours

Miss Hovensky was jailed for a period of over five hours at the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department because she was unable to identify herself before a friend was able to bring proof of her identity to police headquarters.

“The idiot cops left my purse on the scene and left me to rot in jail for five hours because they thought I was a man? I’m going to sue the hell out of them, you can be sure about that” she told local reporters, visibly angered by the whole affair.

Gov. Pat McCrory signed the Public Facilities Privacy and Security Act, also known as House Bill 2 or HB2 in 2016.

The law bans people from using bathrooms that don’t match the sex indicated on their birth certificates, which opponents argue is discriminatory toward the transgender community.

    an abominable law. The citizens who were so traumatized by this person going about her own business should be sued, as should the local authorities, for violation of her civil liberties. Abhorrent behavior: is this what they wanted in passing this ridiculous law?

  3. Who cares what she was I think they need a little of there own KARMA…. DICK FUCKS


  4. She is going to be a very rich lady, thanks to the IGNORANT Mecklenberg/Charlotte Police. Even if She was a Tran, She did not deserve this. This is Just one of the reasons I would NEVER live in the South………….

  5. Str8s have to have someone, somegroup or somrthing to collectively hate. They’re not concerned about morality, respect or citizenry. Most cops being NAZI thinking scumbags will attack, beat and kill without so much as a blink. This lady was lucky she lived through the experirnce. Remember Earl Garner? Killed NYPD over some cigerettes.
