Another Young Woman Comes Forward About Maypearl Police Chief

MAYPEARL (CBSDFW.COM) - Brittanie Lyon says she first met Maypearl Police Chief Kevin Coffey four years ago, when he was a sergeant and she was 18.

"Hey, why don't you come down? We'll have lunch," she remembers him asking.

Invitations to meet, she said, turned into inappropriate comments.

"Oh, 'Your boobs are so big' and, 'you have a nice body' and 'your butt's getting bigger'. I mean, 'I have messages where he'd say I want to smack that a**."

Coffey is now under investigation by the Texas Rangers and the Ellis County District Attorney's Office for similar allegations by a 16-year-old girl.

Lyon says news of the investigation Monday caught her off guard. "I'm just in shock. I don't understand," she said.

She showed us messages she said he sent her on Facebook starting in 2011.

"I told him you had amazing boobs," read one.

Lyon says, when she got in trouble, Coffey let her perform community service hours in the police department.

"I've done ride-alongs with him in the cop car, pulling people over for speeding," she said.

She says he only put his hands on her once. "He was massaging (my shoulders) and then it went down to my arms… He was like, 'If you undo your bra strap, I can massage right here in the middle of your back'. And I said, 'No, I'm tired. I'm just gonna go home," she said.

Lyon says she ignored a string of half a dozen messages over the span of a month.

"I need a big brittanie hug" read one.

Lyon says Coffey persisted, eventually writing "ANSWER YOUR PHONE!!!!!"

"I told him some of the comments made me uncomfortable, and he laughed it off. He said, 'I'm just kidding with you'."

Lyon says at one point Coffey cut off all communication. "He blocked me from his Facebook. He blocked me from the Maypearl Police Department page," she said.

She says she didn't understand what happened.

"I looked up to him," she said.

Now she wonders if it was all part of his pattern. Court records show investigators believe Coffey may have been communicating with at least six underage girls. They raided his home and office over the weekend looking for evidence he was soliciting minors and abusing his power.

Coffey is now on administrative leave.

The Ellis County District Attorney is asking anyone who may have had questionable contact with Chief Coffey to come forward.

CBS11 tried reaching him at home, but his son said he was sleeping.

His Facebook and Twitter accounts appear to have been taken down.
