Not everybody is happy about making it on TV.

A Woodridge woman filed a lawsuit claiming she was humiliated on Biography Channel’s “Female Forces,” after a video of her February 2008 arrest was aired on the cable channel without her consent.

“This is the last thing I wanted … and I was just shocked,” Eran Best told the Chicago Tribune.

What’s worse, Best found out from family and friends that she was on the show, where she was seen being mocked by the officers. Personal information such as her name and address were also shown on the officers’ computer screen.

The arrest came after Best was pulled over for an expired license plate in early 2008. In the lawsuit, Best claims her arrest was sensationalized by the two female Naperville officers starring in the show.

The woman also said the officers forced her to stand in the cold as they searched her car and ordered her to take a field sobriety test.

Take a look at a preview of the show's next episode involving the arrest of a Naperville woman.
