Corporal Steed made a career of pulling over drivers who she claimed were driving drunk or under the influence.
There was only one problem. Some of the drivers Ms. Steed arrested had not been drinking, or at least not enough to be reasonably impaired, according to the lawsuit, brought by a group of Utah lawyers on behalf of two plaintiffs. “They would pass the sobriety test with flying colors. But Steed would say they were still impaired and arrest them.” Lawyers involved in the case said that they have spoken with more than 40 people who also claimed they were falsely arrested by Ms. Steed.
