The Galena Park Police Department strikes back!!
Former GPPD cop Corrie Long grabbed a lot of attention when she made claims she was unjustly fired because an ex-boyfriend and fellow cop gave the chief the nude pictures she had sent him.
Long told reporters police chief Robert Pruett and another supervisor made lewd comments about the pictures, asked her embarrassing questions and pressured her to quit. She also said they ignored another cop's affair with a teenager who worked in the GPPD offices.

Now the three have filed a defamation suit against her and her attorney, saying the charges are false and hurting their reputations.
The suit says Long was fired for "multiple policy violations" by an interim chief, rehired by Pruett "and later resigned after at least two more serious disciplinary infractions involving both policy violations and lack of clear and mature judgment."
Long filed an EEOC complaint against the department, which contained the allegations the new suit says are false.
