  • The half-million settlement includes court costs, attorneys fees and expenses 
  • The La Vergne board voted 3-1 at a special meeting in favor of settling the lawsuit
  • The 28-year-old was fired in January 2023, six other cops were let go 

Tennessee cop-gone-wild Maegan Hall settled her lawsuit with the city of La Vergne for $500,000 after she was fired when an internal probe revealed her raunchy romps with six male officers.

The 28-year-old was fired in January 2023 after it was first discovered that she had sexual relationships with several cops in the department – some who have been terminated, others suspended. 

The rookie cop hit back in a federal lawsuit, claiming she was groomed and abused by lecherous superiors, including Police Chief Burrel ‘Chip’ Davis and Sgt. Lewis Powell, a 15-year law enforcement veteran.

The half-million settlement includes court costs, attorneys fees and expenses paid out by the city’s insurance. 

The La Vergne board voted 3-1 at a special meeting in favor of settling the lawsuit.

‘The agreement was negotiated between the attorneys representing the city and Hall,’ a statement from the board said.

‘The City denies any admission of liability and no taxpayer funds will be spent to settle this lawsuit.’

La Vergne launched an internal inquiry late last year after a whistleblower came forward to report that a female cop, Maegan Hall, was having ‘intimate relationships’ with multiple male colleagues and even on police property.

In the course of the investigation, it emerged that Hall was having sex with multiple fellow officers – including officer Lewis Powell – and they had carried out sex acts while on duty. 

When interviewed in the investigation, Hall said she had played games of ‘strip Uno’ exchanged foot fetish photos and played out wife swapping sessions with fellow officers. 

During one interview about the affairs, Hall said: ‘I got stupid, I got desperate, I guess, and guys are guys and they’ll stick their d**k in anything.’ 

While discussing her affair with Powell, she said at one point they had carried out sex acts on police property, she said: ‘I just gave him a blowjob in the substation.

‘Me and my husband were kind of on the verge of a divorce and I just cracked and then it just kind of got out of hand.’

Powell initially denied the relationship, but later admitted to it – claiming in the latest lawsuit that then-police chief Davis had told him to lie at first. 

The probe led to both Hall and Powell – as well as Patrol Officer Juan Lugo, Detective Seneca Shields, Sgt. Ty McGowan and, eventually even the police chief Davis – who initially led the inquiry – all losing their jobs. McGowan was the source of the original whistleblower tip received by La Vergne Mayor Jason Cole’s office.

Patrol Officer Patrick Magliocco, K-9 officer Larry Holladay and Patrol Officer Gavin Schoeberl, who traded naked pictures with Hall, were also suspended. 

In the aftermath, Hall claimed that she had been ‘sexually groomed’ by her ‘predator’ superiors and had tried to ‘kill herself.’   

She filed her own lawsuit earlier this year, claiming that: ‘Sgt. Powell positioned himself as a reliable source of companionship and advice regarding Ms. Hall’s career and her marriage.

The lawsuit said: ‘Sgt. Powell persisted in requests for sex despite Ms. Hall’s resistance. Eventually, Ms. Hall gave in to Sgt. Powell’s requests for sexual favors.’ 

But she said when she tried to stop that Powell threatened to kill himself. The lawsuit reads: ‘Sgt. Powell was crying and told Ms. Hall he drank an entire bottle of Jack Daniel’s whiskey. 

‘He threatened to kill himself, told Ms. Hall ‘you did this to me,’ and asserted that Ms. Hall was responsible for his imminent suicide.’

Hall said the ‘exploitative sexual relationship’ with Powell is what led to other sexual encounters involving other officers.

She also claimed in the suit that Police Chief Chip Davis was ‘no better than his subordinates, inviting Hall on lunch dates, asking her to come into his office to dance for him and questioning whether she preferred ‘dark, white or milk chocolate.”

It later emerged that Davis had shared explicit videos of Hall and made sexist comments on a secret burner phone he nicknamed ‘Ole Boy.’

Davis feigned surprise as he oversaw the internal inquiry into the scandal.

But then court filings obtained by DailyMail.com revealed that Davis knew all about the events before the inquiry and had even pestered one of his sergeants to send him video of Hall masturbating.

In the latest lawsuit, Powell accuses Davis of instructing him to lie about his relationship with Hall during the investigation and ‘deny that anything had even occurred at all’.

‘Throughout the year 2022, Officer Hall slept around with a number of other police officers,’ the lawsuit reads.

The suit also claims that Hall then had a mental breakdown and La Vergne Mayor, Jason Cole, found out she had been sleeping with multiple officers and decided to ‘get to the bottom of the situation and uncover every juicy detail.’

Hall told officers she was in an open marriage and tried to recruit her husband Jedidiah for swinging sessions, but he was not on board

DailyMail.com contacted the City of La Vergne for comment.

Powell is suing the city after claiming he was fired – while his white colleagues were allowed to stay on the force – because of his race. 

He is suing the city, the Mayor, Jason Cole, La Vergne HR Director Andrew Patton and former Police Chief Chip Davis for racial discrimination, claiming $3 million in damages as well as front and back pay. 

The complaint alleges that the city ‘terminated and defamed all the officers involved — except for those who were white and male — based at least partly on racial prejudice.’ 

The raft of firings and disciplinary measures triggered by Hall’s antics meant that La Vergne – population 39,000 – lost around 12 percent of its police manpower overnight. 

Petite Hall grew up in rural Tennessee dreaming of becoming an actress but eventually found her calling in law enforcement – a career that barely lasted two years.

Despite his wife’s infidelities, she and Jedidiah are still living together at their home in Manchester, 60 miles south of Nashville, their first marital property, which they bought a year ago.

The couple have been sweethearts since their college days and got married in November 2018.

‘I don’t know how he’s doing it, he’s more of a man than I am, but he’s trying to salvage his marriage,’ Jedidiah’s boss, Coffee County Sheriff Chad Partin, told DailyMail.com last month.
