Vineland Cop Sues Police Chief for Allegedly Requesting Sexual Favors
A Vineland police officer has filed a lawsuit against the department's chief for allegedly refusing to promote him unless the chief could first sleep with his wife or daughter.
In a report, Ronald DeMarchi of the Vineland Police Department states that his work environment was hostile, and claims Chief Rudy Beu had made several sexual comments about his wife and daughter.
According to NJ.com, the first incident occurred in 2017 at McFadden’s Sports Bar where Beu asked DeMarchi what "assets" he had to support his promotion while gesturing at his wife. The officer claims this was the first of many incidents involving his family. When Beu discovered Demarchi’s intentions to file, he warned him to proceed with caution.
Demarchi has requested a jury trial.
