    Playboy Playmate sues cabbie, police

    NEW YORK - A Playboy Playmate has sued a taxi driver, police and the city, claiming that officers roughed her up based on the cabbie's false accusation that she was armed and dangerous.

    "It was a nightmare," Stephanie Adams, 35, said at a news conference Friday announcing the lawsuit, which seeks unspecified damages.

    The city had no immediate response. The cab driver, 40-year-old Eric Darko, denied any wrongdoing.

    "She thinks she's got a case, but I didn't do nothing," Darko said when reached by telephone.

    The lawsuit stems from a May 25 incident that began when Adams -- Miss November 1992 -- caught Darko's cab to take to her apartment. After they argued over where to drop her off, he cursed her out, called 911 and made the false report that she had a gun, Adams alleges.

    Adams said she made her own 911 call after Darko pushed a rear car door into her as she tried to get out.

    A few moments later, plainclothes police officers surrounded Adams on the street with guns drawn, grabbed her purse and pushed her to the ground, she said. When they searched her bag and realized she was unarmed, they let her go without an apology.

    "It was not necessary for them to throw her down to the ground," said Adams' attorney, Sanford Rubenstein.

    The complaint filed in state Supreme Court in Manhattan accuses police of assault and claims Adams "suffered great pain, distress, mental shock, mental anguish and psychological trauma."

    Adams also complained to the city Taxi & Limousine Commission, which has suspended Darko's taxi license. A TLC investigator reported that the driver told him he called 911 after she flashed her "vampire teeth" and threatened to shoot him.

    Darko denied making the vampire remark. He accused Adams of causing the ruckus by refusing to pay him a $9 fare, then warning him she had a gun.

    "I didn't start anything with her," he said.

    So she can pose naked in a magizine with world wide publication so that people everywhere can sexually gratify themselves with her image, but a police encounter causes her mental anguish and trauma?

    I'm guessing she's not in such high demand as she once was and has to do something to make money.

    PsychoTherapy Clothing announced today the signing of Playboy Playmate Centerfold Stephanie Adams as featured Spokeswoman for the company’s new Gay and Lesbian t-shirt line.

    (PRWEB) January 31, 2006 -- PsychoTherapy Clothing announced today the signing of Playboy Playmate Centerfold Stephanie Adams as featured Spokeswoman for the company’s new Gay and Lesbian t-shirt line.

    "PsychoTherapy Clothing has chosen Stephanie Adams to represent our brand because of her pioneering spirit and outspoken voice”; states company President Keith Knight. Stephanie was the first Playboy Playmate Centerfold to come out of the closet as a lesbian and she is a prominent fixture in the New York City Gay and Lesbian community. She is also an accomplished author, astrologist and painter.

    Stephanie was on the cover of last year’s Village Voice gay pride edition and has been featured in and on the cover of various publications including Bazaar, Cosmopolitan, ELLE, She Magazine, Curve, GO NYC, Next, The Weekly News, DIVA, The Advocate, New York Observer, Time Out New York, The Daily News, The New York Post, New York Newsday and many more.

    About Psycho Therapy Clothing:

    Psycho Therapy Clothing designs fun, sexy, cool and crazy t-shirts that allow people to express to the world their individual obsessions, sexual preference and state of mind. The front of each “Gender Therapy” shirt offers a common gay/lesbian term, while on the back is featured a dictionary style definition. This unique wearable “coming out” therapy enables people to get out of the closet and on to the street--expressing not only their good taste, but also who they are.

    Launched in July 2005, Psycho Therapy Clothing is the brainchild of New York based filmmaker Keith Knight. As a member of the Directors Guild of America (DGA), he worked on films with stars like Brad Pitt, Denzel Washington, Steve Martin, Anthony Hopkins, Goldie Hawn, Richard Gere and Winona Ryder. Many of the quirks of these A-list celebrities helped inspire him to form the company.“ At about $20 a shirt I thought this was a more cost-effective way to work out inner demons,” jokes Knight of his collection. “The high price of therapy these days had me thinking that I could help people with their psychological issues and their wardrobes at the same time.” The shirts can also be sent anonymously to people who just don’t get the hint.

    The interactive website also features a “Free Advice” section, a photo gallery of the beautiful “Psycho Girls”, and a chance to submit shirt ideas. Next month will feature the launch of new S&M themed shirts as well as a line of custom designed hospital scrubs.

    Shirt prices start at $19 and are offered in XS, S, M, L, XL. Each high quality 100% cotton shirt is offered in women’s, men’s and children’s sizes of either the classic T or tank. Psycho Therapy Clothing is cleverly packaged in an oversized prescription bottle making it the perfect gift to give to someone…in person or anonymously.
