Lakeland had to pay to settle a case where an officer asked a woman to shake her bra during a traffic stop.

LAKELAND, Fla. -- The city of Lakeland has paid a $25,000 settlement to a woman ordered to shake out her bra during a traffic stop last year.

A public records request by The Ledger shows a check dated July 7 to 29-year-old Zoe Brugger.

Authorities say Brugger was pulled over by Lakeland police officer Dustin Fetz in May 2013 for a broken headlight. Silent video taken from the patrol car shows her being forced to shake out her bra multiple times in a search for drugs. The officer also searched her car over her objections. No drugs were found.

Fetz has not been reprimanded for the search itself, but he served a one-day suspension for not having his microphone on.

City officials say they're still waiting for an executed release, which will free them from a future lawsuit.
