Stinnet, Texas – Stinnet (TX) Police Chief Jason Collier was recently placed on administrative leave after a woman, claiming to be his mistress, outed him on Facebook.
Cecily Steinmetz, a 39-year-old Amarillo woman, said that she was unknowingly his mistress, writing in a January 26th Facebook post that “Chief Jason Collier is living a double/triple life. I was his girlfriend until yesterday. He lied to me and presented me with fake annulment documents when I found out he was married. I also found out about a 2nd girlfriend, Kristi, last night. He has lied to us, our children, and asked us both to marry him.”
Steinmetz posted several photographs with Collier in her post.
Heavy.com reported on the viral Facebook post and that Collier is a married father of four.
Steinmetz added, “He is a poor representative of your town. He would also visit me in Amarillo when he was on shift.” Steinmetz said she and Collier returned from vacation in Taos, New Mexico, on Saturday, January 23, and had told another one of his girlfriends he was on a work assignment in Portland, Oregon.
In the comments on Steinmetz’s post, a third woman came forward to say she was also dating Collier, and other women have said they have had similar experiences with him.
