A small police department in Tennessee in the US has been rocked by allegations of wild sexual misconduct after a married female officer allegedly had affairs with six male officers while on duty, according to reports.
As the New York Post reports, Officer Maegan Hall and her colleagues allegedly engaged in wild sexual encounters that included sending her nude photos, removing her top at a hot tub party and even performing oral sex with two officers at the police station. La Vergne, Tennessee, as broadcast by WTVF television.
The pink slips led to Hall’s firing, as well as Chief Lewis Powell, Officer Juan Lugo, Chief Ty McGowan and Detective Seneca Shields, according to a December internal investigation.
Two other officers who allegedly had affairs with Hall — Patrick Magliocco and Larry Holladay — kept their positions but were suspended, according to the reports.
The extramarital dates took place in hotels and parties at other officers’ homes and on a boat. Hall was also accused of performing oral sex on Powell and Shields while on duty at the police station and at the police gym, according to the Dec. 28 internal report.
Officials began looking into the romanced officers’ personal lives when La Vergne Mayor Jason Cole received a tip that Hall was sleeping with several of her fellow officers and had a threesome with Magliocco and his wife.
When asked about that information, Magliocco admitted to having sex with Hall on “multiple occasions,” the report said, and admitted that he and Hall had even had sex while on duty.
Magliocco also said he had seen Hall and Holladay kiss while watching football at a party, and said Hall had kissed his own wife Amy after learning they had an “open marriage,” according to the document.
The officer said Hall’s husband witnessed the kiss and told officials he “really didn’t agree” with his wife having a threesome with the Maglioccos, but she continued to have a relationship with him.
When questioned, Powell later denied having sex with Hall, but said “everybody knows she has multiple partners,” as he named Holladay and McGowan to investigators.
After being caught lying about being at the gym with Hall, Powell admitted to the date during a subsequent interview, according to the report.
Powell then became involved in a domestic dispute with his wife, who, he told investigators, “beat me up,” adding that he would “probably lose his kids” after his wife found out about his affair.
Holladay admitted during questioning that he had sex with Hall “multiple” times, and McGowan revealed that he once went to Hall’s house with another woman.
After initially denying having sex with Powell and Magliocco, Hall later admitted to the relationships and also admitted to having sex with Lugo at a motel after they met at a Go Cart center – a charge Lugo initially denied before confessing in a second interrogation .
During questioning, Shields said “I have never had sex with Megan Hall” before admitting the act when pressed, the inquest heard.
Magliocco also noted that he had become concerned about Hall’s mental health and heavy drinking. The officer said Hall had once pulled the trigger on an empty gun “to hear what it sounded like” and said she suffered from mental illness.
One event often mentioned in the report was a Memorial Day party at a boathouse owned by another member of the department, to which several officers brought their children.
At one point during the party, a “drunk” Hall allegedly unwittingly consumed a large amount of Magliocco’s vodka in the hot tub, causing her shirt to come off, while other officers stopped the former officer from drinking and they helped cover her “to protect her,” according to Durham’s report.
Lugo, Powell and Shields were also fired for violating police procedure and giving false testimony during the investigation, along with McGowan.
Holladay, Magliocco and Patrolman Gavin Schoeberl were suspended, officials said.
Human Resources Director Andrew Patton, who wrote the report and conducted the investigation, sanctioned the eight officers for various charges including “sexual activity on duty, sexual harassment, conduct unbecoming an officer and lying during the investigation.”
It was also revealed that Hall and many of the male officers had shared lewd messages and nude images of their… exploits.
“Pornography and offensive images in the workplace are forms of sexual harassment. These items are offensive, inappropriate and can lead to a hostile work environment for other employees,” the report said.
