    RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — A college student who says she fled in terror when undercover officers who thought she had illegally bought beer swarmed her SUV has reached a $212,500 settlement with the state of Virginia.

    Attorney General Mark R. Herring announced the settlement Wednesday night with Elizabeth Daly, who had filed a $40 million federal lawsuit against agents with the state Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control. The lawsuit said Daly had bought a carton of sparkling water at a supermarket in April 2013, which the agents mistook for beer. She said that the badges around the agents' necks were not clearly visible, and that the agents did not identify themselves as officers.

    The agents banged on the sport utility vehicle and demanded that she open the window and not start the engine. One tried to break the window with a flashlight, and after another officer pulled a gun, one of Daly's two passengers shouted that the badges were fake and implored the driver to "go, go, go," according to the lawsuit.

    Buying illegal sparkling water. Cops are next pursuing the guy using illegal teardrops for his eyes. It also had too much sparkle in it.

    The amount of force necessary for an alcohol bust operation is not a group of guys beating on a vehicle and drawing guns. It should have been one officer clearly identified calmly knocking on the window to speak with them and figuring out what the situation is.

    Saw a deal on the news this morning where EPA and DHS impounded a women's car because it was "Not compliant with EPA regulations." This stuff is crazy.

    it was a range rover not fixed up for the US Market. And you have federal departments using swat teams to do this. Tell me something is not going VERY wrong.
