Nashville police officer fired over OnlyFans video showing 'traffic stop'

Published

on

WARNING: This story contains explicit details.

The Metropolitan Nashville Police Department (MNPD) in Tennessee recently fired a police officer who allegedly appeared in an OnlyFans video in uniform.

The video, which was obtained by local outlet WTVF, appears to show the officer engaging in sexual activity with a woman during a fake traffic stop. The officer’s face is deliberately hidden in the video.

The amateur video was shot from the perspective of a man in the front passenger seat and shows the officer pulling up in a white car. After seeing the squad car, the woman in the driver’s seat is quoted as saying, “I’m not going to get a ticket. … I’m going to show him my t–s.”

According to WTVF, the Nashville officer identified himself as “Officer Johnson of PD” in the video. He tells the woman in the video that she had been speeding and asks for her license and registration.

The woman then exposes her breasts to the officer, who acts unimpressed.

“Ma’am, it’s 2024. I can see t–s on the internet any time,” the officer says before the woman offers to let him grope her. The rest of the video shows the officer and woman touching each other in a sexual manner, according to WTVF.

19 state attorneys general challenge blue states' 'radical' climate policies impacting others

Alabama is spearheading a coalition of 18 Republican-led states in a federal lawsuit against five Democrat-run states, alleging the latter are trying to coerce the former into complying with strict climate-conscious policies that could imperil their residents’ access to affordable energy.

The filing was made at the U.S. Supreme Court on Wednesday as the plaintiffs argued that Democrat-led states California, Connecticut, Minnesota, New Jersey and Rhode Island are essentially forcing residents of politically opposed states to feel repercussions of their restrictions and, therefore, are dictating national energy policy.

“California and New Jersey and the defendant states are trying to make national energy policy through state laws,” said Kansas Attorney General Kris Kobach, one state official who is party to the lawsuit. “And if the Supreme Court does not step in, they may succeed.” 

“If the defendant states’ laws have their desired effects, fossil fuel energy companies across the nation will either be hit with massive damages or have to change their policies directly. And, those defendant states will affect the availability of cheap, affordable energy in our states,” he said.

“One state does not have the right to control policy in another state.”

GOP STATE AGS PRESS SUPREME COURT TO TAKE UP HAWAII CLIMATE CHANGE CASE THEY CALL A ‘GRAVE THREAT’

Of criticisms that it may not be apropos to escalate such a case immediately to the Supreme Court, Kobach said this is a rare instance where it is needed. He said the high bench has always had jurisdiction over interstate quarrels and that the “opposing interests” in this filing are especially stark.

Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall, who is leading the charge, told Fox News Digital he has the right to take the complaint directly to the Supreme Court because it has original jurisdiction over state action. He pointed to other cases in which one state takes legal action against another and makes its plea to the high court.

“When you have two sovereigns that are making claims against one another, it is the appropriate venue for those claims to be heard,” he said.

Marshall said the crux of the matter is essentially that defendant states are crafting climate policies that will have an undue effect on Alabama and its fellow plaintiff states.

“I think one of the things that is so most objectionable is the fact they are using common law claims, plus the statutory Deceptive Trade Practices Act claims, as a vehicle to engage in climate policy,” he said.

“I think, broadly, the issue is how does this affect the constituents of our individual states? And so the legitimate question is: Why should we care in Alabama how California chooses to operate in the state courts themselves?”

“Well, if California prevails, they’re really going to be able to do two things. They’re going to be able to impose a tax on carbon because that’s what [legal] ‘damages’ truly are in these cases,” Marshall said.

He expressed hope the Supreme Court would agree that energy and climate policy is a federal issue and not one the states can dictate in a way that could affect others.

BILLIONAIRE-FUELED ROCKEFELLER FUND COORDINATED CLIMATE LAWSUITS WITH DEM STATE AG: INTERNAL DOCUMENTS

The legal complaint reads in part: “Defendant States want a global carbon tax on the traditional energy industry” … “In their view, a small gas station in rural Alabama could owe damages to the people of Minnesota simply for selling a gallon of gas.”

The complaint cited API v. Minnesota, a case brought against energy firms for alleged harm caused by their contributions to global warming, among other things.

It also referenced a case from 1981 brought against West Virginia by bordering states who took issue with a policy that required Mountaineer natural gas producers to meet local needs before exporting their valuable energy source.

Kobach said this current multiparty lawsuit is one of a few qualified cases that should be heard first and ultimately by the Supreme Court:

“A relatively small number of cases can go directly to the Supreme Court because they are complex between one state and another or one group of states and another group of states,” Kobach said, adding that the high bench has at times declined to hear such cases.

Asked about what plaintiff states’ resources might be if New Jersey, California and the others are permitted to continue crafting policy with alleged wider-reaching effects than statutorily permitted, Kobach said Kansas, for example, has limited recourse.

“The second course of action would be [to] seek legislation in Congress, preempting what the defendant states have done, but that is a difficult process,” he said.

“It takes a long time, and it may come too late, depending on what happens in these defendant states.”

Kobach said the current suit is not the first of its kind. The Supreme Court previously upheld California’s sow housing law that plaintiffs said led to an avoidable spike in the cost of bacon and other pork products outside California.

Efforts to reach representatives for the defendant states in the case were unsuccessful.

Catholic monk comes out as transgender with diocese's permission

A Catholic monk in Kentucky has come out publicly as a transgender man and claims to be the first person in his position to do so. 

Brother Christian Matson, 39, a Catholic hermit in the Diocese of Lexington in Kentucky, made the declaration on Sunday, the diocese announced Tuesday. Hermits are a small subset of religious persons who mostly spend their lives engaged in quiet prayer.

“On Pentecost Sunday, Brother Christian Matson, a professed hermit in the Diocese of Lexington, has made it public that he is a transgender person,” the diocese said. Pentecost Sunday is the day on which the Holy Spirit descended upon early Christians, the Bible teaches. 

Matson converted to Catholicism in 2010, four years after transitioning while in college, Matson told Religion News Service (RNS) last week ahead of the pending announcement. In 2022, Matson took vows as a hermit under Bishop John Stowe of the Diocese of Lexington in Kentucky. Stowe was aware of Matson being trans, according to the outlet.

Matson, who is also a Benedictine oblate, had a defiant message to those who are critical of transgender people in the church.

“You’ve got to deal with us, because God has called us into this church,” Matson told RNS. “It’s not your church to kick us out of — this is God’s church, and God has called us and engrafted us into it.”

“If I don’t say anything and allow the church to continue to make decisions based on incorrect information, then I’m not serving the church.” Matson was raised in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.).

Matson claims to be the first openly transgender person in his position in the Catholic Church, although RNS was not able to confirm the claim. 

Last month, the Vatican published a document that discussed the Catholic Church’s view on transgender individuals.

The declaration, called “Infinite Dignity,” was approved by Pope Francis and said that God created men and women as biologically different beings, and that no one should try to alter that plan or “make oneself God.” The document describes gender-affirming surgery as violating God’s gift of human dignity and as attempting to play God on the surgeon’s table during a “sex-change intervention.”

A 2019 Vatican document rejected “calls for public recognition of the right to choose one’s gender” in its instructional letter, while in 2021, the Diocese of Marquette in Michigan instructed priests to refuse transgender people asking to be baptized or confirmed until they have “repented,” according to RNS.

“It was suddenly becoming a lot more difficult in the church to be trans,” Matson told RNS.

Some dioceses in the U.S. have issued stern guidelines in effect forbidding acknowledgment of gender transitions. However, some parishes have welcomed trans people.

Matson decided he wanted to dedicate his life to his faith, but a 2000 Vatican document that, according to a Catholic News Service report from the time, stated that anyone who had undergone “sex-change” was ineligible to marry, be ordained or enter religious life.

Matson then sought the advice of a canon lawyer, and after a decade of trying to find a suitable religious order to serve as well as studying in the U.K., he connected with Bishop John Stowe of the Diocese of Lexington in Kentucky, who had been calling for a more tolerant approach to LGBTQ+ people. During that time, Matson also co-founded a nonprofit in New York City called the Catholic Artist Connection.

Stowe expressed his openness to accepting Matson as a hermit because he was a sincere person who wanted to serve the church, Stowe said of Matson, per RNS. 

“Hermits are a rarely used form of religious life … but they can be either male or female,” Stowe said. Because there’s no pursuit of priesthood or engagement in sacramental ministry, and because the hermit is a relatively quiet and secluded type of vocation, I didn’t see any harm in letting him live this vocation.”

“It was an enormous relief,” Matson said. “I was in tears. I felt my hope revive.”

In 2022, Matson took his first vows as a diocesan hermit under Stowe’s direction and then renewed the vows in 2023. 

“I became Catholic after I transitioned because of the Catholic understanding — the sacramental understanding — of the body, of creation, of the desirability of the visible unity of the church and primarily because of the Eucharist,” Watson told RNS. 

The Diocese of Lexington’s statement went on to say that “Brother Christian has long sought to consecrate his life to Christ in the Church by living the evangelical counsels of poverty, chastity and obedience.”

“He has consistently been accompanied by a competent spiritual director and has undergone formation in the Benedictine tradition,” the statement continues. “He does not seek ordination, but has professed a rule of life that allows him to support himself financially by continuing his work in the arts and to live a life of contemplation in a private hermitage.”

Fani Willis’ ex-staffer testifies she was fired after blowing whistle on DA’s spending

A fourth Georgia state Senate investigation committee hearing as part of its probe into alleged misconduct by District Attorney Fani Willis concluded Thursday afternoon.

The Senate Special Committee on Investigations, chaired by Republican state Sen. Bill Cowsert, considered sworn testimony from witness Amanda Timpson, who served as Willis’ director of juvenile diversion programs but says she was demoted and eventually fired. Cowsert says her termination was after she became a whistleblower and complained about the misuse of funds.

Timpson testified that she was subject to “overwhelming retaliation” and “pushback” after notifying her direct boss that Willis’ office was knowingly misusing federal grant funds, which is illegal. 

Timpson helped to write and apply for a competitive federal grant focused on programming to help at-risk youth and grant prevention. She testified that when Willis took office in 2021, her new supervisor, Michael Cuffee, told her that he planned to use the funds to purchase “computers, travel and swag” as part of the office’s “rebranding” upon Willis’ administration.

When Timpson told her boss that those purchases were not permitted under the grant, he persisted in his plans for the purchases, she said. He also told Timpson that Willis requires all her staff to refer to her as “madame” and that the swag and other purchases were Willis’ “vision,” Timpson testified.

Timpson said that after serving in the previous district attorney’s administration, she was required to interview again with Willis’ administration to keep her job in December 2020. Nathan Wade, who roughly a year later would be hired as a special prosecutor, was on Timpson’s interview panel, along with Willis and her communications official, Jeff DiSantis.

Timpson said she wanted Willis to be aware of the misuse of funds to “protect” her and “protect the integrity of the grants.” She said that after Willis was made aware of Timpson’s warnings, she was demoted to the position of file clerk. 

“I thought that I was going to ultimately retire from the DA’s office, and it made a place that I used to be proud of working at hell for me, essentially,” Timpson said. 

Timpson testified that after she escalated her claims of retaliation to the Office of Diversity and Civil Rights Compliance, she was eventually terminated and escorted out of the building by seven armed investigators. 

Timpson also testified that Willis made “completely slanderous and libelous statements” about her employment history, making it difficult to secure her next job.

“[I]t made my life extremely hard and my family’s life extremely hard. And just, you know, for me, it’s I’m here today to fight for my reputation, to fight for the youth of Fulton County, but also for the truth,” she said.

Amanda Timpson

Amanda Timpson, former Director of Juvenile Diversion and a member of Fani Willis executive leadership team, testified Thursday before the Georgia senate.

Timpson also said Willis’ office was the recipient of a federal Justice Assistant Grant intended to fun the DA’s summer program called the Junior DA Program. Those funds were allocated specifically to help Fulton County youth in middle and high school grades. 

But Timpson testified that the first summer program under Willis’ administration included students from other states, relatives of government officials, and one of Willis’ family members. 

“It was essentially a summer program for the most privileged youth in and around the country. There were elected officials’ grand kids there, Fani’s niece, or what she represented as her niece from Florida attended. We went and picked up the niece every morning from her office,” Timpson testified. 

“This was not a crime prevention program for at-risk youth in Fulton County,” Timpson said, recalling that a child of a Dekalb County judge was also in attendance.

EMBATTLED DA FANI WILLIS WINS GEORGIA PRIMARY ELECTION

Georgia’s GOP-controlled Senate voted in January to form a special committee to investigate Willis amid the revelations of her romantic affair with Wade.

Willis is spearheading the 2020 election interference case against former President Trump. She has been a lighting rod of criticism since the allegations that she had an “improper” affair with special prosecutor Nathan Wade, whom she hired to help prosecute the case. 

She is not expected to testify on Thursday and has previously called the committee “unlawful,” though the committee has subpoena power to compel her testimony.

Previous state Senate committee hearings revealed that oversight of Willis’ $36 million budget was “like the Wild West, very little control,” Cowsert said.

At that hearing earlier this month, Fulton County Commissioner Robb Pitts and Fulton County Chief Financial Officer Sharon Whittmore testified that Willis has broad discretion over those taxpayer dollars, including whether to hire a special prosecutor and how much they should be paid.

“You don’t know how much of that is spent on professional services, who is hired, how much they’re paid per hour, what their total compensation is. Yet you’re being asked to provide $36.6 million a year that you know encompasses a number of those types of independent contractors that you know you’re funding with no oversight or control, right?” Cowsart asked Whittmore at one point. 

Pitts also testified that Willis did not have to get any pre-approval for hiring an independent special counsel to assist with her activities.

Ashleigh Merchant, lawyer for Trump co-defendant Michael Roman, testified at the committee’s first hearing that Willis was awarded a $780,000 increase in the DA’s budget on Sept. 15 2021, through the end of that year, with the next year not to exceed $5 million.

The budget increase was just a few months before Wade was hired in November 2021, and roughly eight months before the special grand jury in this case was impaneled in May 2022.

She said that the DA claimed this money was to hire extra people to help with the backlog of homicide cases the office was seeing at that time.

Merchant testified that when she made open records requests to confirm that her office hired new employees and not special contractors, her request was denied by the DA’s office. 

Willis won her primary election on Tuesday by a sweeping margin over her Democratic challenger.

“Tonight they delivered a strong and a powerful message,” Willis said in her acceptance speech. “They want a district attorney that believes everyone deserves to be safe. And everyone is entitled to some dignity. And it’s a message that’s pissing folks off. But there is no one above the law in this country. Nor is there anyone beneath it.”

Fox News Digital reached out to Willis’ office for comment on Timpson’s testimony.
