Jones said she repeatedly told police officers in Indianapolis and Henry County, Tenn., that they had the wrong woman. She was arrested April 24 in the 2600 block of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Street in Indianapolis and two weeks later was extradited to Tennessee.
A Tennessee judge ordered her released May 17, the lawsuit says, based on differences in the two women's names, Social Security numbers and birth dates.
"Lord have mercy," Jones said Monday, recalling the ride back to Indiana on a Greyhound bus paid for by Tennessee authorities. "I was just angry. I was just so relieved to get back home."
This one is a little hard to understand. How do you confuse the name "Venus D. Jones" with "Venus LeDue?" Not surprisingly, Ms. Jones is suing IPD and the Indianapolis Police Department in federal court for violating her constitutional rights.
