A Florida mother was surprised to discover that local police officers had adopted some new investigative tactics in their war on drugs.

Zoe Brugger was forced to 'shake out her bra' to confirm she was not carrying narcotics, after she was pulled over for a broken tail light.

According to CNN.com, Brugger was ordered (twice) to: "Lift up her shirt, pull her bra away from her chest and shake"

"I felt humiliated. I wish I had known my rights." Brugger told CNN -- adding that she was on her way home to care for her two-week-old son.

The dash cam footage (above) of Lakeland police officer Dustin Fetz's demands is fairly unequivocal about what happened, and a report of the incident in a local newspaper prompted State Attorney Jerry Hill to get involved.

"First of all, it's just plain inappropriate. Let's get that out of the way. It's just wrong," he said to ABC News.

Adding that officers had no right to even search Zoe, her boyfriend, or their car because they did not have probable cause.

NY Daily News reported that the State's Attorney sent a letter to the Lakeland Police Department ordering an investigation and a review of how officers are trained.

The police department said in a statement that it didn't condone the officer's conduct, and Chief Lisa Womack was looking into the incident. However Dustin Fetz is back on patrol, after just a four-day suspension.
