The video is unsettling to watch, but its not that big of a deal that men where present during the strip search. Those guys could have been gay and the women could have been lesbians.

I highly doubt they performed the strip search because they wanted to see her naked.

Back in 2004, Haley Owen Hooper was pulled over by Sevier County deputies looking for the owner of the car she was driving. She says they searched the car without her permission. When she refused to perform a field sobriety test, they took her into custody.
“They arrested me for nothing,” said Hooper, “…I mean, they weren’t even looking for me.”
A female nurse at the Sevier County jail strip searched Hooper. When she refused to provide a urine sample, deputies obtained a warrant for bodily fluids. She offered to give blood but was told by one of the deputies, “in a black cowboy hat,” according to her, that the judge wanted urine. Next step: a male guard stripped her in front of several other male guards. She was held down and a catheter was forced into her.

Her lawsuit says that she “was half-naked, bleeding, and had several male and female strangers watching and participating in the violation of her rights.
