INDIANAPOLIS Two Indianapolis police officers face a federal lawsuit alleging they violated a woman's constitutional rights by making her remove a sticker from her minivan that read "unmarked police car."

The Indianapolis Star reports ( ) the American Civil Liberties Union of Indiana filed the lawsuit on behalf of 56-year-old Pamela Konchinsky of Franklin.

It alleges she pulled into an Indianapolis parking garage June 17 when the officers told her to remain in her car and grilled her about the sticker taped to her minivan's back window.

The suit says Konchinsky told the officers the "unmarked police car" sticker was a joke, but they asked her to remove it because someone might think she was impersonating a police officer.

Indianapolis corporation counsel Samantha DeWester says the office doesn't comment on pending litigation.
