Palm Beach Officer in Discrimination Lawsuit Was Swimsuit Model
Town of Palm Beach police officer Artemis Saridakis has filed a gender-discrimination and harassment lawsuit.
Turns out the 27-year-old Saridakis models swimsuits and other sexy outfits, reports Gossip Extra.
As it is with these kinds of things, Saridakis claims in her suit that her supervisor, Capt. Scott Duquette, said she slept her way through the department, called her a "hoochie," and allegedly also said Saridakis is "a whore who shakes her ass in nightclubs."
Saridakis is one among five other cops who have filed EEOC complaints for sexual and racial discrimination and harassment. She's the only female among them.
All five are represented by Stuart trial lawyer Willie Gary and may sue the town.
According to Gossip Extra, one of the other officers involved in the lawsuit, P.O. Jason Vega, was apparently demoted from sergeant when his bosses discovered he was running a dating service called youcompleteme.com from his desk while on-duty.
For her part, Saridakis once posted her modeling pics on Model Mayhem, a website where amateur models advertise themselves.
Some of her photos were taken on local beaches, including an apartment complex in Juno Beach.
Neither the attorney nor Saridakis have commented on the lawsuit.
