Yesse says the worst night of her life happened in May 2020, when she claims she was wrongfully arrested. She says that after asking police officers for help because she discovered her car windshield had been smashed, she was taken to the police station, stripped, and had blood drawn forcibly from her arm after being arrested for double DUI and hit-and-run – which she insists she did not do.
Yesse’s lawyer, Benjamin Taylor, says Yesse was wrongly arrested – and that he is committed to sharing the truth of Yesse’s story.

“Yesse was truly a victim, and when she reached out for help, for the Scottsdale police department to help her, they just kept questioning her and questioning her when she had evidence, concrete evidence, that night that she had been at the bar,” Taylor tells Dr. Phil on Thursday’s episode. “They could have gone back to the bar and interviewed witnesses there. She had friends that she was with. They talked to the friends; the friends verified her story, and they still didn’t believe Yesse.”
Hear why Taylor says he filed a lawsuit and why he claims the police were very “egregious in their manner” in the video above.
