A female NYPD officer alleges that her female superior officer yanked her ponytail inside of their Queens precinct, causing injury, in a bid to warn her, in the latest scandal to rock New York’s finest.
Officer Christine Meisner says that Sgt. Nakia Middleton-House told her: ‘You put your hair in a bun or a perp might do this,’ according to the New York Post.
The incident occurred at the 109th Precinct station house in Flushing on January 11, according to the report.
Meisner, 29, said in her complaint that the hair pulling aggravated a previous neck injury that Middleton-House, 48, knew about. Following the yanking, Meisner needed medical attention.

Officer Christine Meisner has been with the NYPD since 2017
This isn’t the first time that Middleton-House has stepped out of line. In 2018, she was punished after using a police database for non-official business, records show.
The punishment was ‘unrelated to the performance of her duties or official business of the department.’ Middleton-House lost 10 vacation days following an investigation.
Her case was published in an article by ProPublica as an example of the NYPD using loss of vacation days as a favored method of punishment.
The sergeant is a 17-year veteran of the NYPD while Meisner joined the force in 2017. In 2020, Middleton-House attempted to start a side-hustle business selling fake eyelashes named Bossy Blinkz. The company’s website is no longer active.
Public records show that Middleton-House made $160,000 last year. She has been at the 109th precinct since September 2022. Previously, the sergeant was at the 104th precinct and 70th precinct.

The incident comes a month after two NYPD rookies were found to have gotten frisky in an academy bathroom.
Javon Latibeaudiere, 26, and Madelin Ramirez Solano, 21, are said to be in an ongoing relationship but they brought it with them to work, as fellow recruits caught them in a stall.
The pair have been in the police academy since July, with Latibeaudiere having previously served in the Marines.
The NYPD said in a statement at the time: ‘The two officers are suspended. The matter is under internal review.’

Recruits are supposed to spend six months training at the Queens facility, meaning Latibeaudiere and Solano were a month from finishing the program
According to the New York Post, NYPD vets have had enough of some of the shenanigans on display from the new recruits.
One anonymous cop said: ‘These recruits don’t fear or care about getting caught breaking the rules.’
Another derisively stated: ‘This is what we’re recruiting now.’
Meanwhile, Vera Mekuli, 27, the rookie cop who gave her boss a lap dance at a Christmas party in 2021, shows no signs of concentrating on her work.
Mekuli shared pictures showing her dressed up as the Joker’s girlfriend with the caption: ‘Trouble never looked so fine,’ in December.
She posed for the shots wearing makeup to resemble the character and an oversized mallet – which the character often uses to attack her opponent.

Vera Mekuli, 27, posted the photos for her over 24,000 followers on Instagram cosplaying as the Joker’s famous girlfriend with the caption: ‘Trouble never looked so fine.’
Mekuli, who joined the force in February, 2021, first turned heads later that December when she was recorded in a black and white mini skirt and midriff top grinding against the crotch of NYPD Lieutenant Nick McGarry, a supervisor in the 44th Precinct in the Bronx, during a holiday party for the stationhouse
Mekuli, who is still assigned to the 44th Precinct in the Bronx, according to the Post – also wore fishnet stockings while she posed next to a black Subaru WRX STI.
Lt. Nick McGarry was demoted to the transit bureau for allowing the junior officer to grind on him after that infamous holiday party.
Mekuli earns $42,500 a year. Previously she has worked as a real estate agent in The Bronx.
She describes herself as a ‘highly motivated and determined individual,’ on her LinkedIn page.
