Lisa Steed for civil rights violations. Steed has been accused of arresting people for DUI who were sober. Two judges have found Steed lied on the witness stand and a 2010 memo suggesting she was falsifying arrest reports has emerged.  While the vast majority of law enforcement officers are hard-working and dedicated to protecting the public from drunk drivers, this officer may have used her discretion to abuse innocent citizens....
