A former Tennessee cop who was fired for engaging in sexual relationships with six other officers on the job has settled her federal civil lawsuit against her former employer for an eyewatering sum.

Maegan Hall, 28, was dismissed from her job in January 2023 after it emerged that she had sexual relationships with several officers in the suburban-Nashville department - some of whom have been fired, while others were suspended.

Hall responded with a federal lawsuit, alleging she was groomed and abused by her superiors, including Police Chief Burrel "Chip" Davis and Sgt. Lewis Powell, a 15-year police veteran.

Per WKRN, the rookie cop settled her lawsuit with the city of La Vergne for a whopping $500,000. This includes court fees, attorneys costs 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."

Late last year, La Vergne launched an internal inquiry after a whistleblower came forward to report that a female officer was engaging in "intimate relationships" with several male colleagues on police property.

During the investigation, it was revealed that Hall was having sex with a number of other officers - including officer Lewis Powell.

In her interview as part of the investigation, Hall said she had played games of "strip Uno", exchanged foot fetish pictures and engaged in "wife swapping" with colleagues.

In one interview concerning 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 talking about her affair with Powell, she admitted they had carried out sex acts on police property. She said: "I just gave him a blowj*b 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 originally denied the relationship, but later confessed - alleging in the lawsuit that the then-police chief had told her to lie.

The investigation led to Hall, Powell, Patrol Officer Juan Lugo, Detective Seneca Shields, Sgt. Ty McGowan and Police Chief Burrel Davis being fired. McGowan was the source of the original whistleblower tip that La Vergne Mayor Jason Cole's office received.

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

Hall is now claiming that she had been "sexually groomed" by her "predator" superiors and had tried to take her own life.

She filed the lawsuit earlier this year, alleging that: "Sgt. Powell positioned himself as a reliable source of companionship and advice regarding Ms. Hall's career and her marriage."

The suit stated: "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."
