UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
NORTHERN DISTRICT OF INDIANA
SOUTH BEND DIVISION
AUBREY ANN COY,
KOSCIUSKO COUNTY, KOSCIUSKO
COUNTY SHERIFF’S DEPARTMENT
JAIL, and KOSCIUSKO COUNTY
Cause No. 3:17-cv-241
OPINION AND ORDER
Aubrey Ann Coy, a pro se plaintiff, has filed a complaint and a petition for leave
to proceed in forma pauperis. (DE 1; DE 2.) Before allowing the case to proceed, I must
review the complaint under 28 U.S.C. § 1915(e)(2)(B)(I) and dismiss it if the action is
frivolous or malicious. Ms. Coy’s complaint makes the following allegations:
I was incarcerated during October 2014-May 2014 & was held in a
holding cell up front in the Jail. An unseen electrical current
continuously went through me & a wicked light of some sort shocked
me very hard. These unseen voices kept telling me there is No
Death[.] Then they said I was Brutally Raped & Lived Through it
while they were shocking me. A Burning Substance went through my
body, A Bunch of Singing Went up through my body[.] During all this
& There is much more that happened in that cell they had (the
mysterious voices around me said I was going to get married[.] The
electricity Was so harsh I continuously had to go to the bathroom. I
have heard from Jail ministry that men & women are raped in IRAQ
or IRAN to get married & this happened to me. No one would help &
they left me that cell. I witnessed numerous men being abused and
going through some sort of force unseen that was causing them to
masturbate uncontrollably[.] a guard (A huge guard) robbed ahold of
this poor (little boy) And slammed his head into the cement. *Note -
I will state - I do not now where this wicked power or electricity of
sort is coming from...But this is where the worst of it happened...So I
am Not 100% Saying They are fully responsible... Something else is
Going on[.] Another white male was uncontrollably shaking like I was
and I could tell he was under something similar to me. The Jail
Commander said he was there for alcohol. They gave him No Blanket.
Another Black male was So under something similar to me but had
sweat & white stuff all over him & he could hardly Breath. They fed
us with 2 meals of Bologna & small bowl of Cereal. I was also ganged
up on in population several times. They Still threaten to arrest me if
I say anything or don’t pay child support that is inaccurate.
(DE 1 at 2-3.)
I note with great regret that Ms. Coy appears to be suffering from some sort of
delusions. The Seventh Circuit has stated that complaints that appear to be the product
of delusions can be dismissed. See Gladney v. Pendleton Corr. Facility, 302 F.3d 773, 774
(7th Cir. 2002); see also Felton v. City of Chicago, 827 F.3d 632, 635 (7th Cir. 2016) (stating
that allegations are frivolous if they are “clearly baseless,” “fanciful,” “fantastic,”
“delusional,” “irrational,” or “wholly incredible”) (citation omitted). Unfortunately, Ms.
Coy’s claims fall into this category.
Accordingly, this case is DISMISSED pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915(e)(2)(B)(I),
and the motion to proceed in forma pauperis (DE 2) is DENIED.
ENTERED: May 15, 2017.
