Playmate Sues Cops and Cabby Over Bad Ride

9/22/2006 1:32 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Playboy Playmate Stephanie AdamsA former Playboy Playmate is set to file suit today against the NYPD and a New York City cab driver for allegedly roughing her up and leaving her in permanent pain, according to the New York Post.

Stephanie Adams, once crowned Miss November, is alleging the NYPD and the cab driver's company assaulted her and seeks unspecified damages. Adams says she hailed a cab driven by Eric Darko on the evening of May 25. According to the Post, the ride went sour when Adams asked Darko to drop her off closer to her apartment, which was apparently out of Darko's way. According to a Taxi and Limousine Commission (TLC) report, "The driver became very upset and cursed at her."

From there, Adams called 911 but the cabby told officers who arrived on the scene that Adams had a gun and was threatening to shoot him. According to the suit, the cops were leering at her skintight outfit before wrestling her to the ground and they "put pressure" on her back.

Darko also told the TLC he was afraid because Adams had "vampire teeth." The NYPD says the officer "responded appropriately."

We, are not amused.    

This story is absolute bullsh*t! First cabbies named Dark-O don't pick up Nig-O's in New York! Never happened, never will. And if it did happen, she's fortunate that the cops didn't smoke her for carrying a gun!

Riiiighhhttttt - and of course, she was just sweetness and light BEFORE the guy started cussing - she would NEVER try to come off like the African Queen, right? She was just spewing sugar, and the cops picked on her because she was "hot" in her skin tight outfit - and, of course, because she was BLACK.

what a bunch of losers    

WOW #8. Your superior intellect is showing in your outstanding grasp of the English language and perfect use of grammar. I am so impressed by you! Please spew more drivel so that my day is complete.

OMG you are indeed an idiot, as well as posters #1, 2, 3 and 4. Poster #5, while your intention is honorable, your speech is so terrible and your spelling so horrible that without meaning to, you have really shown yourself to be uneducated. I feel bad for you for this because our educational system has let you down.

I have to learn to stop reading the comments section because clearly they don't screen. Comments 1-4 are obviously from the same pimple-faced loser geek who's unemployed or in college and has nothing better to do than to write stupid comments and then jerk off with excitement when people respond to it. Hey lame ass, get a life (or at least a job). You're just mad because a girl as hot as her (or any other girl for that matter) wouldn't even look your way. Now go watch your "Jack-Ass" DVDs and get off the computer, freak!!!

Go Away    

Well thanks for pointing that out #8. I'll be sure to bring that up at our next hate on everyone meeting. Come on guys... She didn't have a gun and she's not trying to get publicity.... maybe. They just wanted to tackle her because she's a playmate wearing a skintight outfit...

i don't think the article mentioned race as a factor. how did that come up? aaaand...i think that if she had a gun she wouldn't be filing the suit. maybe...just maybe...she's telling the truth. go figure.
