The woman, who accused a high-ranking police chief in early 2016 for having extra-marital relationships with multiple women in the NYPD, including her, has filed a $100 million lawsuit against the department, alleging that she was coerced into an abusive sexual relationship with him.

Tabatha Foster, a  retired NYPD officer, claimed that Assistant Chief Jeffrey Maddrey tirelessly pursued her while she was his subordinate at Brooklyn’s 75th Precinct and manipulated her into having a years-long affair that included sex on-duty, which soon morphed into mental and physical abuse.

According to The New York Post, Foster claimed that despite his voracious actions, Maddrey rose through the ranks through what she referred to as “white-shirt immunity,” which is an implicit policy that defends high-ranking officials and is secretly endorsed by department brass, the suit stated.

Court documents also indicate that Maddrey began victimizing Foster back in 2009 while she was pregnant, telling her both on and off-duty how much he “wanted her.”

The woman, who said she suffered abuse as a child and has PTSD as a result, asserts that Maddrey “used knowledge of her marital problems and the traumas she suffered as a child including the sexual abuse pretending to be her savior.”

Maddrey then “co-opted her into an unwanted ‘supervisor-subordinate’ sexual relationship,” the documents revealed.

The relationship proceeded after Maddrey was promoted and was assigned to PSA 3 in Brooklyn back in 2011, where he would frequently drive to her house in a patrol vehicle for sex.

After she had discovered that he was having sex with other women, she confronted him, and he threatened to distribute a myriad of nude photos that she had sent him at his request.

During a fight back in December 2015, the man — who was promoted to commanding officer of Brooklyn North — purportedly brought Foster — who had retired on disability — into a shaded park, where he threw her to the ground and choked her.

Foster claims that she pulled a firearm on Maddrey, who eventually persuaded her to put it down. When it was in a safe location, he proceeded to choke her, then he grabbed the gun and stripped it.

Shortly after that altercation, Foster posted a hefty rant on Facebook, revealing their affair and accused him of “chasing pregnant, married girls around the department.”

The tirade, which was first reported by Post, led to an NYPD Internal Affairs investigation, and Maddrey defended himself.

No action has been taken against the man.

In addition to Maddrey, the suit also cites Police Commissioner James O’Neill, and former Commissioners Bill Bratton and Ray Kelly, for being “fully aware [that] sexual harassment is a serious problem especially in the ranks of Captain and above, they are rarely if ever disciplined aka ‘White Shirt Immunity.’”
