Former Nashville Cop Arrested for Appearing in OnlyFans Clip

NASHVILLE, Tenn.—Former Metropolitan Nashville Police Department (MNPD) officer Sean Herman was recently arrested at his home weeks after it was revealed that he appeared in a viral OnlyFans clip in full uniform and while on duty. He faces two felony official misconduct charges for participating in the production of the OnlyFans clip, an MNPD statement notes.

MNPD Chief John Drake took action and fired Herman, 33, on May 9, the department statement adds. His bond was set at $3,000. Herman served on the MNPD for three years.

Tennessee defines "official misconduct" as an offense wherein a public official "commits an act relating to the public servant's office or employment that constitutes an unauthorized exercise of official power; commits an act under color of office or employment that exceeds the public servant's official power; refrains from performing a duty that is imposed by law or that is clearly inherent in the nature of the public servant's office or employment; violates a law relating to the public servant's office or employment; or receives any benefit not otherwise authorized by law." Penalties for these violations are resolved by a criminal case, says the statute. If found guilty, Herman could face prison and the inability to serve in a public office in the future.

The police department's Specialized Investigations Division reportedly "discovered the video and identified him as the person in an MNPD uniform, seen in the video from the chest down, who took part in a mock traffic stop in an OnlyFans skit during which he groped the exposed breast of the female driver."

According to detectives, the video was produced on the evening of April 26, 2024, in a warehouse parking lot near Madison, a suburban neighborhood of Nashville.

News Channel 5, a local affiliate of Scripps Media, reported on the viral OnlyFans video and noted that the clip appeared to be staged.

Other news outlets have circulated the video, which clearly shows a watermark for the OnlyFans creator calling herself "Jordinswetof" or "Jordin." A third person, the cameraman, can also be heard speaking in the video.

"I'm not going to get a ticket ... I'm going to show him my tits," Jordin tells the cameraman in the clip as Herman approaches the driver's side of the vehicle as if it was a real traffic stop.

Herman's face is cut off from the shoulders up, and he refers to himself as "Officer Johnson" when he introduces himself to Jordin and asks if she knows why she is being pulled over. He asks for Jordin's license and registration after informing her that she was going 65 miles per hour through a 45-mile-per-hour speed limit zone.

Jordin replies by telling him she has neither on her person and proceeds to offer to show him her breasts to resolve the matter.

"Ma'am, it's 2024. I can see tits on the internet any time," Herman says. Jordin responds, "Well, what if you touched them?" Herman does so. Jordin also appears in a photo with Herman on her OnlyFans page promoting the traffic stop clip.

AVN reached out to Jordin for comment on the controversy, and she explained, "The clip was originally intended to be a Twitter promo for views. I do a lot of public flashing, so I thought this would be a fun risqué video with a fan from Reddit who happened to be a local [police] officer.

"The original clip actually sort of went 'baby' viral before the news picked it up," she continued. "I had like 15 million views on Twitter, and I caught wind that it had been reported to MNPD, so I pulled it down. Once I heard he was terminated, two days later, we saw the news articles, and it went way more viral."

Jordin explained that the cameraman was her husband and that she felt Herman's initial firing was an overreaction. She disclosed, "It was a skit drawn up by my husband and I, and everything that took place was consensual, on private property."

Like several adult content creators, she expressed that she intended to do a "fan" collaboration with Herman. "The video wasn’t designed to be something to sell," she said. "The officer originally reached out to film a scene, but we had to get him verified and waivered prior, so this was a fun little prelude to that.

"The sex scene never happened, but I’m working on that," she added. "[I] really hope to get that with him at some point."

Jordin noted that she actually paid a month's worth of salary to Herman after he was fired as a means to help him. She said she "was really sad" to hear about the virality of the video, his firing, and the charges of felony official misconduct brought against him. "He's a really nice guy," she asserted, characterizing his arrest as an "absolute overreach."

"[It] seems really petty to further punish a guy for this," Jordin concluded. 

Note: AVN mistakenly overlooked previous information reported by News Channel 5 in Nashville that Herman was on a "Last Chance Agreement." This is due to a personnel history of misconduct on the MNPD, including accusations of sexual harassment and creating an offensive work environment for a female coworker.

According to his records, Herman sent sexually charged texts to a coworker in hope of having sex with her. He reportedly shared nude photos with his coworkers while in uniform at a restaurant, among other accusations. News Channel 5's Levi Ismail says Herman was instructed to undergo safe workplace training last year and keep out of trouble for two years.

He also had a record of accidents in vehicles due to "poor decisions." He also admitted to having an OnlyFans account that he only posted on once or twice prior. Herman told investigators that he didn't see any reason to disclose that on his background investigation.
