The disgraced former Tennessee police officer -who slept with over half the sworn officers on her department’s roster- reportedly could not figure out why women in her agency had such a bad reputation, internal documents show.
In a series of recorded interviews with La Vergne Police Department Director of Human Resources Andrew Patton, former LVPD Officer Meagan Hall admitted to multiple sexual encounters with her fellow officers, including a threesome that caused serious friction between her and her husband.
According to agency policy, any inter-agency relationships that turn sexual in nature must be reported.
Hall admitted to a series of sexual encounters, including several that took place on duty.
The interviews also involved Chief Burrel “Chip” Davis, who sat in on the second series of interviews with Patton.
While Davis was forthcoming about a threesome between Officer Patrick “PMag” Magliocco and his wife (an incident which her husband walked in on and was greatly upset by), she initially lied about having a sexual encounter with Sergeant Lewis Powell.
In a later series of interviews, Hall admitted to an ongoing sexual relationship with Powell, including a “blowjob in the substation.”
“So, we’ve had sex a lot,” she said. “He’s just been there for mere, I was there for him, because his wife doesn’t want to have sex with him. Me and my husband were kinda on the verge of a divorce…And I just cracked and then it just kind of got out of hand.”
At one point, Davis admitted to asking another officer for money in order to get a hotel room for her and Powell.
Another sergeant, Sergeant Henry Ty McGowan, had a more interpersonal relationship with Davis- one that eventually soured.
“I mean, we’ve been close forever,” she said of McGowan. “He- on multiple times, would say, ‘You know, use me. You know if you ever want to have sex, use me.’”
Eventually, Powell and McGowan spoke to one another, with one admitting to denying anything had ever happened.
McGowan also reportedly had an inappropriate relationship with Hall and a female officer (identified as “V”) before they were officially hired, playing “strip Uno” and sending a photo of his penis to her.
“So, what part of the process were you in with us at that point,” Patton asked. “The hiring process, what part were you in?”
“I think it was the psych eval,” Hall replied. “I think we’re celebrating that we just finished the psych and if so, we weren’t officially hired but we were like…close.”
At times, Hall apparently would even partake in sex with her fellow officers when she wasn’t really “into it,” reportedly doing so because they looked after one another emotionally.
One such encounter, which is difficult to precisely pin on a single officer (many are mentioned in this time frame, and she frequently bounces back and forth between topics), she even stated that “A lot of times I would end up just doing it to get him to stop asking.”
“There was one time where I did, and I was just kind of ready for him to finish so we could get it over with,” she stated. “After, he was like, ‘I could tell you really weren’t into that. You must really care about me, thank you for letting me finish.’”
During the interviews, Hall seems confused as to why she is in so much trouble and begins to cry.
“Oh God,” she said as she began to sob in the first interview. “I cry whenever I’m frustrated, I’m sorry.”
“It’s okay,” Patton replied. “There’s some Kleenex right behind that candy bowl there.”
“Why is it that females have a bad rep in this department?” she cried.
“I don’t know,” Patton said. “I’m trying to put the pieces of the puzzle together.”
“Is this what people think of me?” Hall continued. “Do I have to come back? I don’t want to work in an environment like this if they’re thinking that about me.”
“I understand that,” Patton replied.
“I love this job so much,” Hall sobbed.
In a later discussion with Chief Davis, Hall admitted she was not thinking clearly but did not appear to be willing to shoulder much of the blame.
“I got stupid,” she said to her chief. “I got desperate. I guess guys are guys and they’ll stick their dick in anything.”
Davis went on to explain how inconvenient the entire scandal was.
“We’re supposed to be wrapping gifts right now,” he told her. “We’re supposed to be eating cookies, drinking cocoa and all that kind of stuff. It’s right here at Christmas time but yet, we’re dealing with a scandal in the department and we shouldn’t be doing that.”
“You know, I should be winding down to be off work, but now I have to give up days off to deal with this because this is important to me,” he continued. “You know, I feel bad because this happened on my watch.”
Patton interjected, telling Hall that she needed to continue acting like a police officer as soon as she left the interview room, noting that other agencies would not be so lenient as to let her continue working during an investigation.
Hall would later be fired, along with four of the six officers she was involved with. Two would be suspended.
