Wendell Hunt was investigated for sexual harassment and had a history of sexual misbehavior in the department, according to personnel reports released Tuesday. A police dispatcher who was dating another police officer filed an Internal Affairs complaint against Hunt, alleging he called her constantly to talk about sex and ask for dates, including a vacation to Las Vegas, the reports stated. He would also visit her at work and wait for her in the parking lot, she claimed, according to the reports. The woman said Hunt called her hundreds of times over a span of about 21 months, with 70 to 75 percent of the calls being sexual in nature.
