Lovett Had Affair "Numerous Times" With Fellow Officer

Posted: Updated:

The ink is barely dry on Chief Willie Lovett's retirement papers, and more details about the allegations which apparently led to his departure are now coming to light.


News 3 filed an open records request as soon as the Chief's announcement was made, and the documents are starting to pour in.

According to her husband, Sgt Laprentice Mayes' statement, the woman involved is Officer Trina Mayes.

Mayes claims his wife admitted to having an affair quote "numerous times" with Chief Lovett.

And when Sgt Mayes told his Captain, Cedric Phillips, about her claims, Mayes claims Phillips told him she was lying, she is dangerous, and he would be better off with someone else.

Laprentice Mayes goes on to say his wife told him Captain Phillips asked her if she would do anything to get promoted.

He says she replied, what, and Captain Phillips says have sex with him.

Mayes did not have sex with Phillips according to the statement, and did not get promoted.

When trina mayes asked Captain Phillips about being passed over, Phillips allegedly started using profanity towards her and told her to keep her mouth closed.

Laprentice then says Phillips called him and said Trina should stop being vocal about not being promoted because when they come out again she will "get it".

For background, Laprentice and Trina Mayes had a well publicized domestic incident last year.

Both were suspended.

Trina Mayes was a domestic violence detective when the incident happened.

We also just received Trina Mayes' complaint, the same one her lawyers sent to the city.

It states in part that she suffered "injuries" because of the conduct of the chief, police department and city officials.

The claims include, harassment, sexual and otherwise, failure to promote based on gender, including refusal of sexual advances, defamation, assault, battery, invasion of privacy, and conspiracy.

The document says Mayes plans to pursue legal action, and gives the city until October 11 to make a settlement offer.

While Chief Willie Lovett is gone, both Captain Cedric Phillips, Laprentice and Trina Mayes remain on the force.

We have even more documents and details to dig through and will continue investigating for you in the days ahead.
