Former Raiderette & Police Officer Sues Vacaville

A former Oakland Raiders cheerleader who became a Vacaville police officer is suing the city, saying she was sexually harassed by fellow officers.

Thirty-five-year-old Nicole Rosenstiel says officers joked about her looks and made snide comments about the fact that she used to be a cheerleader.

A sergeant allegedly asked during a shift change for a show of hands from officers who wanted to see Rosenstiel naked.

The lawsuit was filed Monday in U.S. District Court in Sacramento.

Vacaville city spokesman Mark Mazzaferro said the complaint is without merit, and the city intends to fight it in court.

Rosenstiel, who is being represented by Oakland civil rights lawyer John Burris, has been on unpaid leave since 2009. Her lawsuit seeks $1.5 million in damages.
