A COLORADO police officer claims she was booted from the force after her colleagues discovered her OnlyFans account.
Melissa Williams, a 28-year police veteran, was forced to “retire” from the Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office in Colorado after more than 11 years on the job.

Williams, 46, said she began posting her explicit content on OnlyFans in May 2020 as a means of spicing up her sex life with her husband and unwild from her dangerous and challenging job.
“My personal sex life was entirely separate and never affected my ability to do my job,” the ex-cop told Jam Press.
She discovered that several of her colleagues had signed up to her page to “investigate her conduct,” and they shared her images around the entire local force and jail staff.
“I was in shock and panicking because I never wanted these two parts of my life to collide,” she said.
Williams’ boss caught wind of the act via an anonymous tip and filed a complaint against her.
“Then I was angry and embarrassed because the notice went on to say how five colleagues of mine – all in lower and higher ranks than me – had obtained access to my paid account to access my private content so they could investigate my conduct.
“I didn’t feel that was professional or necessary. It felt like they all just wanted to see me naked.”
After her alluring content found its way to her colleagues, Williams discovered her images were shared widely around local forces and the jail staff.
“It was all being treated like hot gossip. That’s when I had to take time off with stress because I wasn’t sleeping, I couldn’t eat, it was so frustrating and upsetting.
“I didn’t consider my OnlyFans page to be a work matter. A lot of the material my husband and I shared is stuff we’d taken in our private sex life over the years.”
The model continued: “I was working up to 60-hour weeks, so mostly my husband ran the page and shared my pictures, and then sometimes we’d have fun dressing me up and taking photos especially to share.
“It was a fun way to relax and be creative together after a stressful week in a stressful job.
“I was never in uniform in any of my images. I used a fake persona – most of my fans think I’m a stay-at-home mom. It felt like my bosses were policing my bedroom.”
The situation wreaked Williams’ mental health, and she eventually spent 12 weeks with a doctor who recommended that she not return to her old job.
During her time off, a severance package of $30,000 was put together by her lawyer and the local force.
Williams explained that being a police officer was her “life’s dream from the age of 14.”
“Being a police officer was fulfilling, exciting work. I loved my job – but how could I go back to work in an environment like that? It was hard being a woman in the force. People have always been jealous of me because I am successful, attractive and confident.”
In response to Williams’ claims, the Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office said they began an investigation into the ex-cop after receiving a complaint from a member of the public alleging she was “posing on a pornographic website and, in doing so, was bringing discredit to the Sheriff’s Office.”
They added: “Prior to the completion of that investigation, Ms. Williams sought to negotiate a severance and elected to resign her employment.”
The sheriff’s office denied Williams’ allegation about her termination, saying she “not fired, nor was she forced” out of the force.
“Ms. Williams’ allegations appear to be nothing more than an effort to manufacture a “newsworthy” story to drive traffic to her website,” the Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office said.

Known by the alias Lexi Bella on OnlyFans, Williams’ saucy snaps have helped her pocket $4,000 a month.
Williams sees her firing as a “blessing in disguise,” as she “can sleep at night now and I feel 10 years younger without the stresses of police work.
“My family are glad they don’t have to worry about me not coming home,” she said.
Her kids, who are 15 and 12, don’t know about her modeling work, but Williams says if they were to find out, then she’d be open with them and hopes they’d be supportive too.
“Starting the page was never about money for me. It was always about sharing an intimate part of my marriage because that’s what my husband and I like to do.
“If you ask me, all of this could have been handled with a professional conversation. Instead, I felt I was a really good police officer and felt pushed out of a really good career because of prudishness.”
