A woman who sued police when they changed her out of her vomit-covered clothes has lost her case.
Cheryl Pile was arrested for being drunk and disorderly in the UK three years ago, and police said she "emptied the contents of her stomach all over herself" at Liverpool Police Station, BBC News reported.
Pile claimed her human rights were breached when four female officers forced her to wear clean clothes.
The court ruled the change was an act of decency, as opposed to leaving her to marinate in bodily fluids overnight.
The judge ruled the four officers didn't use "more force than necessary" to change her, and her claim had only been brought to "establish the liberty of inebriated English subjects to be allowed to lie undisturbed overnight in their own vomit-soaked clothing".
Pile also claimed it was a breach of her privacy to have a CCTV camera monitoring her while she lay in the cell. The judge said considering the state she was in, she was "fortunate" to have someone keeping an eye on her - she ended up falling over and banging her head and had to be taken to hospital.
Pile was ultimately fined £60 for her crimes.
