More Stormy Weather for Dallas Police Sergeant Stormy Magiera, Who's Been Arrested

Collin County
The woman you see at right, in a mugshot posted to the Collin County website, is Sergeant Stormy Magiera, a Dallas Police officer since September 2000. According to an email dispatched by the DPD this morning, Magiera was detained by Garland Police and arrested by Murphy PD on a warrant out of Murphy. The charge: "Assault Causes Bodily Injury-Family Violence," a Class A misdemeanor for which bond has been set at $1,500.

If the name sounds familiar, that's because it is; Magiera, as a matter of fact, has been on administrative leave for a month, following a 1 a.m. incident on December 28 at the intersection of Forest and Audelia. As DPD described it at the time in a media release that still lives in my in-box:
While at the light the officer was approached by a suspect with a knife demanding money. The officer and suspect became involved in a struggle. The officer fired their weapon at the suspect and the suspect fled on foot. It is unknown if the suspect was struck by gunfire. The officer sustained minor injuries in the struggle.
But only a few days ago it was revealed that perhaps Magiera wasn't being entirely truthful about the incident -- and that the man with whom Magiera got into the tussle escaped with her Sig Sauer .357, which was later recovered. The officer, a November recipient of the department's Medal of Valor after she helped rescue residents of a burning South Dallas apartment in 2011, has denied any wrongdoing; as she told The News, "You either love me or you hate me, and there's no in between. And I'm OK with that." But now she will be the subject of yet another Internal Affairs investigation for reasons that remain unclear; several messages have been left for Murphy PD.

We first wrote about Magiera two years ago, after the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit ruled that her discrimination suit against the city could go forward. The suit stemmed from a 2005 incident that resulted in her claiming sexual harassment and retaliation, including her being removed as a field training officer because, said one supervisor, "she lacked the proper temperament."

I am so disgusted by all of these comments. I have known Stormy over 20 years and these accusations about her character make me sick. None of you bloggers know the truth, Stormy is an EXCELLENT police officer!

Sad... a lot for one person to handle. Hope she gets help.

jeeps, FOF, your inbox likes it rough, letting a press release stick around like that for a straight month--considering tamer releases prolly come in each day.

If Stormy wasn't apparently lying, this saga would be the makings of a damn good noir.

This makes me laugh. I got pulled over once, and had a warrant(for a speeding ticket that I thought was taken care of) that I didn't know about. The cop said, "how do you not know you have a warrant out for your arrest?"--with a stupid smirk. He had my car towed, even though it was on a public street and out of the way. I'm sure her brethren treated her better.

I'd let her handcuff me.

If we judge by her history of 'problems' on the DPD force, this woman is a ticking bomb, waiting to explode, possibly by 'unloading' on a civilian.  At that point, her record may quite well put the city and PD in a huge liability lawsuit as well as a probably less costly criminal lawsuit...

"You either love me or you hate me, and there's no in between."

OK, I hate you.

Some of us do know her, and know the poor life choices she's made. Accusations of other people she knows nothing about. Throwing her title of officer around to serve her own needs and those of her friends and fellow co-workers.

This is kharma... good ridance.

Stormy, please stop posting about yourself in the third person. You have a history of that.

i had a similar thing happen to me in watauga several years ago.  pulled over for zipping through a yellow and was informed i had a warrant out for a speeding ticket 3 years earlier.  a ticket that i had paid and taken defensive driving for.  i was told if i didn't have a copy of the receipt on my, jail it was.  grrr.  i was always hoping any arrest i was going to have would at least be for something more interesting than a speeding ticket.

Do you even personally know her?

Ever notice that someone who is generally liked never says "you either love me or hate me"?

the officer's only redeeming quality while we were processing is that he said he was sorry he had to book me. I think he honestly felt that way, it was a 25 min ride to downtown from where he arrested me. Cops can be pricks, they have to be amped up and ready all the time, but some do have the ability to flip a switch.

When I hear someone say that, I tend to take that statement as, "Im a bitch" and you either like bitches or you dont

Rhynes is going to be upset to find out Stormy was in jail and he couldn't help her.
