An Arizona woman was recently “arrested” while naked and in her own home after a police officer “illegally” entered her house, the woman said. Police in Chandler, a city just outside of Phoenix, received a phone call about an argument between Esmeralda Rossi and her estranged husband. Rossi told ABC15, “My daughter came to the shower and said there are two officers at the door. So I just grabbed the towel.” Rossi answered the door and told police to wait while she got a cellphone. Rossi claims officer Doug Rose then got aggressive. “I turned to go into my living room, and I probably get about five steps in; and all of a sudden, I just hear boots running in after me, telling me, ‘Stop or I’ll arrest you,’” she told the local news station. At that moment, she began recording the incident. The arrest was also caught on tape by Officer David Selvidge, via the body camera he was wearing. The footage was key in police clearing him of any wrongdoing. Rossi plans to sue the city saying she felt helpless, violated and molested by the incident. Records show that Rossi was never charged with a crime, and an investigation determined that Officer Rose didn’t properly document the incident. The Chandler Police Department is currently investigating the incident.
