On september 2011 I was charged with DUI. Apon arrival at the jail I was told to strip down naked to be searched. A male officer was present (as well as female) and I didn't feel comfortable getting naked in front of the male. I asked for another female officer and was told no. The female officer pepper sprayed me in the face and slammed me on the ground ripping my clothes off. I was crying and having a panic attack.She peppered sprayed me a 2nd time then she drug me to the shower laughing. Told me this shower was gonna burn. She threatened to strap me down naked in a chair. A male officer advised the female to stop and place me in a room. When I attempted my phone call, an officer (male) would allow me to pick up the telephone and then he would intentionally hang it up. I have photos

Are you saying that this occurred about 18 months ago? Tennessee has a one year statute of limitations.
If the date was a typo and this occurred in 2012, then you'll need a video or objective witnesses to what happened and also an expert regarding what force is necessary versus excessive. Civil rights cases are difficult cases.
