2 U-Haul employees sue the Orange County Sheriff's Office


ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. - Two U-Haul employees are suing the Orange County Sheriff’s Office on claims of civil rights violations and false imprisonment.

Wendy Ford and Melanie Nieves claim at least 15 deputies stormed the U-Haul facility on South Kirkman Road last year as part of an investigation, but never showed a search warrant.

When the woman questioned the deputies, they said they were arrested for resisting an officer without violence.

The charges were later dropped by the state attorney’s office.

A Sheriff’s Office spokesman has no comment on the suit.
