LA VERGNE, TENNESSEE: Maegan Hall was fired from the La Vergne Police Department after it was discovered through an internal investigation that she had engaged in oral sex while on the job, exposed herself in a bikini at a "girls gone wild" hot tub party, and tormented another officer for a "three way" with his wife.

Hall, 26, was on her last chance, as reported by the Daily Mail, after she caused her bosses thousands of dollars' worth of damage and even put herself in the hospital in a string of "preventable" car accidents. Documents released as a result of a freedom of information request reveal that the first of Hall's three accidents occurred in November 2021, nine months after she enrolled. The report states, "While responding she traveled on Floyd Mayfield and crossed over the dip at Sand Hill at a high rate of speed. She failed to slow down going through the intersection. This resulted in functional damage to her patrol car of $1,000." The summer of 2022 saw a raise in Hall's salary from $39,624 to $53,069, but following the third and most devastating accident on October 21, she was placed on suspension for four days.

This time, when Hall was leaving the police station to attend to an assault, she pulled out over several lanes of traffic and directly into the path of a van. The report states, "Both vehicles ended in the center median with substantial damage to the van and Officer Hall's patrol vehicle. Officer Hall was injured in the crash and taken to Stonecrest Medical Center."

Hall would receive a final warning and risk termination if she experienced another "preventable" crash in the following year. But a few months later, a whistleblower came forward to claim that a female cop was engaging in "intimate relationships" with male coworkers at wild parties, luxurious hotels, and even on police property. As a result, her flamboyant two-year police career was ended.

Hall, a petite blonde who was raised in a rural part of Tennessee, dreamed of being an actress but ultimately discovered that she had a transitory calling in law enforcement. An internal investigation revealed that Hall had flings with Patrol Officer Juan Lugo and potentially also Sgt Ty McGowan, as well as oral sex with Sgt Lewis Powell and Detective Seneca Shields while on the duty. All of these officers were fired.

Detective Shields protested, "I have never had sex with Maegan Hall," in an attempt to mislead investigator Andrew Patton, the chief of human resources for the police department. He confessed to having oral sex in a police gym when the question was broadened to cover sexual actions before going back to his desk to finish his shift.

Hall acknowledged having additional "booty calls" with Lugo and McGowan, who it later turned out was the source of the initial report from a whistleblower that Mayor Cole's office had received. Despite discussing the extramarital affairs of his coworkers, McGowan kept his own liaisons with Hall a secret and acted "rude, and extremely verbally aggressive" when questioned about them.

Police Chief Burrel 'Chip' Davis stated after his officers' scandalous shenanigans made national headlines, "The actions of a few do not represent the department as a whole." La Vergne, a community of 39,000 people located 20 miles to the southeast of Nashville, lost around 12% of its police force overnight as a result of the slew of firings and disciplinary measures.
