Oceana Co. responds to hijab removal lawsuit
The Oceana County Sheriff's Department says it didn't violate a Muslim woman's rights when they forced her to remove her hijab at the county jail following an arrest in May.
Fatme Dakroub, who is a U.S. citizen currently living in the United Arab Emirates, filed the federal lawsuit, claiming Oceana County Sheriff's Department deputies forced her to remove her hijab despite her objections.
She claims she was in Oceana County visiting family on May 15, 2015 and rented a Jeep at the dunes. She says she was stopped for speeding by an Oceana County Sheriff's deputy and arrested.
