A woman who police reportedly used as a decoy to protect Jamie Lynn Spears as she arrived at Los Angeles International Airport last September is suing the airport’s police department for damages, suggesting that she was used as a decoy without her consent!
Adessa Eskeridge and her attorney, R.J. Molligan, claim Adessa was "not given any details as to the nature of the task or the potential danger involved. She simple followed the instructions of the police as most good citizens would do."
In her filing, they allege that the LAX police "did not want to subject Ms. Spears to the pushing, shoving, humiliation and possible physical injury that come with the paparazzi, but instead decided that Ms. Eskeridge was not important enough to give the same protections to."
Adessa’s attorney claims she was "never informed that upon deplaning, she would be mobbed by the paparazzi, that she would be in fear of her well-being, that her picture would be taken and that video of her would be all over the internet."
And lastly, the woman says she has "suffered and continues to suffer great humiliation" as a result of that day.
Adessa and her attorney are calling the incident a "false arrest" and say she is willing to consider a "fair and reasonable settlement that fully compensates her for the humiliation, fear and harassment that she has been subjected to at the hands of LAX-PD."
