The controversy surfaced following an investigation into the department, revealing sexual activities among officers on duty and on city premises. 

Mayor Jason Cole initiated an internal investigation after learning about these relationships.

WSMV4 obtained interview transcripts with Hall, detailing her involvement in a "girls gone wild" party, strip UNO, and a hot tub party.

Five officers, during the investigation, admitted to having sexual relationships with Hall, who had been with the department for less than two years.

As a result, Hall and three officers were fired, and police sergeant Henry "Ty" McGowan was also dismissed, while others were suspended.

Hall then sued the city of La Vergne, former Police Chief Burrel “Chip” Davis, and former sergeants McGowan and Lewis Powell.

She accused them of grooming and exploiting her sexually from her start at the department, and later making her a scapegoat.

WSMV, an NBC affiliate in Nashville, reported that Hall filed a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, accusing Chief Davis of fostering a permissive environment.

In her lawsuit, Hall described herself as a "vulnerable and optimistic 24-year-old woman" when joining the police force. 

She alleged that her supervisors and the Chief of Police groomed her for sexual exploitation, using their positions to manipulate and abuse her. 

The Daily Mail obtained a 51-page lawsuit where Hall called her colleagues "predators."

The lawsuit states: "Where Ms. Hall sought role models at her new job, she instead found predators."

"They colluded in using their authority to systematically disarm her resistance and entrap her in degrading and abusive sexual relationships, even sharing tips on the best ways to manipulate and exploit her."

Hall claimed her first sexual encounter in the department was with Sgt. Lewis Powell, who took advantage of her strained marriage to initiate a sexual relationship.

"Sgt. Powell learned that Ms. Hall was going through the process of buying a home with her husband and that this process was extremely taxing on their relationship," the lawsuit reads. 

"Sgt. Powell positioned himself as a reliable source of companionship and advice regarding Ms. Hall's career and her marriage."

"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."

Powell countered Hall's lawsuit, asserting the relationships were consensual and accusing Hall of lying.

He claimed Hall persistently flirted and pressured him into sexual relations.

Investigations found Hall had sexual relations with male officers and shared intimate photos and videos. 

In an interview with News Channel 5, Hall spoke of her depression and feeling trapped in her job, accusing her supervisors of exploiting her mental health for their benefit and sexual gratification. 

She felt isolated and blamed for becoming a victim.

Hall's lawsuit against the city and the individuals involved is still ongoing, as reported by the Daily Star.
