A Wisconsin police officer has resigned after it was revealed last month that he had sex 98 times while on duty and spent four to six hours per work day on personal calls using his Hudson Police Department phone, the Hudson Star-Observer reports. Back in April, a woman filed a complaint against officer John Worden, claiming the two had been seeing each other romantically for weeks while Worden was on duty. According to WSAU, the relationship had ended and the woman was thinking about filing a restraining order against Worden. The police department launched an internal investigation into Worden, who claimed the woman was stalking him. The investigation revealed something quite different.
In addition to nearly 100 instances of on-the-job sex—which the woman claimed regularly happened inside Worden's police SUV—and improper use of his department phone, the investigation found Worden falsified his work logs 146 times, lied to his supervisor, and didn't meet performance expectations (the department's, not the woman's). This behavior apparently affected his police work, as Worden only made 27 arrests and gave 25 tickets in the entirety of 2015 while earning $63,000. Worden resigned May 3 after eight years with the department and believes he'll never work in law enforcement again. "I screwed up," he tells the Star-Observer. "It's ruined my life." But he says it's unfair that someone went to the media with the details of his resignation. (Read more police misconduct stories.)
