A SoCal woman is suing the Los Angeles Police Department for $2.5 million after getting arrested and spending 13 days in jail in a case of mistaken identity while trying to board a plane from LAX to Mexico last April.

Bethany K. Farber was detained by TSA and later arrested over a Texas warrant issued for another Bethany Farber.

The two women look nothing alike, but police arrested the blonde Farber and ignored her pleas to check her passport.

According to Farber’s lawyers, law enforcement never checked basic information such as date of birth, middle name etc.

Ms. Farber’s lawyers allege their client was put in a cold cell and was sexually harassed at the Lynwood women’s jail.

“Her family hired attorneys in Texas and LA and finally were able to show through Farber’s cell phone GPS that Farber was in California on the day prosecutors alleged the crime took place in Texas,” FOX LA reported.

“The fact no one checked her middle name, her birth date. No information representing her person … they didn’t even check basic information that Bethany was not the other Bethany Farber,” attorney Rodney Biggs said.
