The city of Los Angeles and its airport police force are facing legal action from a decoy they allegedly ordered to help protect Britney Spears'
sister Jamie Lynn
Cops at Los Angeles International Airport tried to divert paparazzi from following Jamie Lynn on September 11th by flanking impromptu doppelganger Adessa Eskridge
and escorting her to baggage claim. Eskridge, who was flying on the same plane as Spears, claims authorities told her, "You're going to help us with something" as she disembarked the aircraft, according to her lawyer, Chuck Vernon.
He alleges the eight cops treated his client as though she was being taken into custody, before leading her into a scrum of paparazzi who proceeded to swamp her. Spears was able to leave the airport undetected by the media, reports TMZ.
Eskridge has filed a claim for money from the city. Vernon has vowed to file a lawsuit citing false arrest and negligent infliction of emotional distress if the claim is rejected.
