‘Hot Cop’ Viral Photo Removed Amid Complaint Against Officer

GAINESVILLE (CBSMiami/AP) — The Gainesville Police Department has removed a widely-shared Facebook photo of three officers who had been praised for their good looks amid an investigation into a complaint against one of the men.

Gainesville police say in a statement that several people have brought information to the department’s attention regarding a complaint against Officer Michael Hamill, the bearded officer at the center of the group selfie.

The department hasn’t disclosed the nature of the complaint, but The Gainesville Sun reports screen shots sent to the newspaper show anti-Semitic posts on Hamill’s personal Facebook page. The Sun reports the posts were made in 2011 and 2013.

Hamill’s selfie produced more than 100,000 comments after it was posted to the Gainesville police Facebook page on Sunday.

The post received so much attention, the police department announced it would create a calendar featuring more of their attractive boys in blue and the funds raised would go to Hurricane Irma recovery in Florida.

No word now on where the calendar plans stand.
