    Would you a plan a trip to one of America’s unhappiest cities?

    Not every city is perfect, but if you’re planning a trip to one of the nation’s so called “unhappiest cities” don’t be sad. The U.S. National Bureau of Economic Research recently released a study called “Unhappiest Cities” which listed the country’s unhappiest and happiest metro areas with a population over one million. And the results are pretty surprising.

LAKELAND, Fla. (FOX 13) - The Polk state attorney sent a highly critical letter to Lakeland Police Chief Lisa Womack after a young police officer asked a woman to shake out her bra, twice, during a traffic stop.

It started as a traffic stop, but Officer Dustin Fetz asked her to shake out her bra so he could see if she was hiding any drugs. After shaking it once, he asked her to do it again.

"He asked me to get out of the car and asked me if I had anything on me. I said no. He said, 'Well, can you turn your pockets out and can you pull your bra out and shake it?' I did that and he asked me to do it again and just really flip out the underwire part and make sure that nothing else could be in there," Brugger said Thursday.

Dash-cam video released Thursday showed the incident, which State Attorney Jerry Hill called "highly questionable" and "demeaning." He said Chief Womack should be "alarmed" about deficiencies in training and supervision of traffic stops.

No drugs were found in the woman's bra, at which time the officer also asked to search her car -- a request the woman denied.

Chief Womack issued a statement this afternoon promising a full investigation.

"This department does not condone the alleged actions as have been reported in recent days and any officer proven to be involved in this type behavior will be dealt with accordingly, including possible termination," the statement said.

Officer Fetz has been put on administrative leave with pay for four days.
