U.S. Marines Accused Of Throwing Brazilian Prostitute Out Of Vehicle
More international shenanigans
Americans sure know how to treat a lady, of the night.
Fresh off the embarrassment of 10 Secret Service agents hiring prostitutes in Columbia, it is now being revealed that last November marines on a U.S. Embassy security team kicked a Brazilian prostitute out a moving car.
According to Daily Mail, the story goes:
Four U.S. Embassy officials had visited a nightclub in the centre of Brasilia where they had hired a group of prostitutes.
One of the Americans and at least one woman left the club by taxi, but [Romilda Ferreira] and another women got into an official U.S. Embassy van with the other three men.
As they pulled away there was a discussion about how much the women were to be paid, and one of the marines pushed Ms. Ferreira out of the car, where she ended up being run over by the vehicle.
Ferreira suffered broken collar bone, two broken ribs and a punctured lung.
Brazilian officials have not been able to question the men involved because they were removed from the country before charges could be filed.
The incident came to light during U.S. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta's visit to Brazil where he was questioned about it. He told reporters two of the marines had their ranks reduced and the embassy staff member was removed from his post. He also said the embassy tracked Ms. Ferreira down and paid for her medical expenses.
Ferreira still plans to sue the embassy.
