911 Tapes Released in Case of College Student Assaulted by Liquor Cops

They thought her water was booze and jumped her like she was a terrorist


The voices of the women are panicked.

"Oh my God, oh my God, oh my God. We're really sorry," the caller says in a 911 recording released Thursday by the regional emergency communications center for the Charlottesville area.

The caller was one of three women confronted by plainclothes Alcoholic Beverage Control agents at about 10:15 p.m. April 11 outside the Harris Teeter store in the Barracks Road Shopping Center.

Agents suspected one of the women was underage and carrying a case of beer, ABC said. Instead, it was LaCroix sparkling water. The women said they didn't know the agents were officers. Six agents closed in at the height of the incident. One drew a gun.
