Tennessee police officer fired for sex faces dismissal after ‘preventable’ traffic accidents: report

Fired Tennessee police officer Maegan Hall was already facing dismissal after she repeatedly crashed her patrol car during her two years on the force before the revelation of a wild sex scandal cut short her career.

Hall, 26, was threatened with dismissal from the La Vergne Police Department months before her eventual firing, as she cost the department thousands of dollars in damages due to a series of “preventable” car accidents, the Daily Mail reported. She also ended up in the hospital after some of these accidents.

The first car accident occurred in November 2021, just nine months after she joined the force. She then crashed again in July and October 2022. In one instance, Hall had responded to a gun threat call when she crossed “the decline at Sand Hill.”

A notice obtained by the Post showed a December warning about “neglect of equipment/property” and “violation of policy and/or procedure.” He received a pay raise from around $39,600 to $53,000 despite the incident.

The second notice resulted in a written warning about further team oversight, before a third warning related to a policy and procedure violation. The final accident resulted in a four-day suspension after she left the police station parking lot and crossed several lanes of traffic in the path of a pickup truck.”

“Both vehicles ended up in the center median with substantial damage to Officer Hall’s pickup truck and patrol vehicle,” the report stated. It also included a warning that if Hall was involved in “another preventable accident before 10/21/2023, she could be fired.”

But Hall’s career ended anyway after revelations of sexual escapades, including a “Girls Gone Wild”-style hot tub party, surfaced and identified Hall as the official woman at the center of it all.

Hall claimed to be in an “open marriage” and faced allegations of oral sex at police headquarters and secret dates at officers’ homes, hotels and parties, all of which were not reported to superior officers.

“This situation is unacceptable and as soon as it was brought to our attention, it was immediately investigated and action was taken against the individuals involved,” Mayor Jason Cole said in a statement provided to Fox News Digital.
