The rookie NYPD cop who went viral after giving her boss a raunchy lap dance at their Christmas party last year is once again breaking the internet after posting racy photos as the Batman villainess Harley Quinn. Vera Mekuli, 27, dressed as the Joker's girlfriend and posted the photos on social media with the message, "Trouble never looked so fine."
The officer, who started work in February 2021, was caught on camera last year rubbing Lieutenant Nick McGarry in the crotch as she gave her a raunchy lap dance. McGarry was demoted from his rank following that while Mekuli only apologized for her actions.
Her Arresting Photoshoot
Almost a year after raging a storm in her department and on social media Mekuli once again is melting Instagram with sizzling snaps dressed like DC comics bad girl Harley Quinn. In the photoshoot, Mekuli is seen standing next to her black Subaru WRX STI while donning harlequin makeup, fishnet stockings, and a huge mallet to resemble the anti-hero.
In one photo, Mekuli, who is still assigned to the 44th Precinct in the Bronx, according to the New York Post, can be seen standing in front of the Subaru and staring back at the camera, and squatting down at the spoiler-equipped Subaru's rear in another.
"Trouble never looked so fine," read the caption Mekuli added to three photographs she posted to her Instagram profile.
Her fans went bonkers over the racy pictures.
"DEFINITELY representing NEW YORKS FINEST!!!" one gawker drooled.
"Best cop ever," another wrote.
However, the provocative photos did not go down well with everyone. "How this broad is still a cop is beyond me," wrote one user.
"People like her are turning the job into a joke. ... This is acceptable from a cop? This is back-up if someone is fighting for their life?" wrote another annoyed user.
Uncertainty surrounds the cop's intentions, including if she intends to launch a modeling career or an OnlyFans account, as some admirers urged her to join the adult content platform after she shared yet another racy image in the spring.
Her Instagram page has her Venmo and Cashapp information if any of her 23,000 followers wants to lend support and send her money. Connors said he usually charges $80 for 10 photos.
Making Her Fans Overheat
Mekuli made headlines last year at the 44th Precinct's annual holiday party when she gave a lap dance to married Lt. Nick McGarry and was recorded on camera. After that awful holiday party, Lt. Nick McGarry was demoted to the transit bureau for allowing the junior officer to pick on him.
Mekuli's annual salary is $42,500. She previously held a position as a Bronx real estate agent. She calls herself a "highly motivated and determined individual," on her LinkedIn profile page.
"I tend to go after what I want and I don't stop until I get it," she added. "If I am to fail. I pick myself up and try again!
"Success does not come without failure. I've learned at a very young age that success/wealth/opportunities isn't just given or handed to you, it is earned; earned by hard work and time you put in.
"I have tackled every task, every obstacle, that came before me. I like helping others and I always put others before myself.
Mekuli is a native of The Bronx. She graduated in 2018 from John Jay College where she studied criminal justice and police science after attending the David A. Stein Riverdale/Kingsbridge Academy.
Last year's party was held at Rory Dolan's, an Irish bar in Yonkers, New York, just north of The Bronx on Thursday. Admission was $75 with the promise of a DJ and open bar. At the party, Mekuli was seen rubbing her behind on McGarry's lap as he sat in a chair and grabbed hold of her thighs.
Another video shows the rookie officer facing McGarry and straddling the 44th precinct commander as he grips her by the waist. While McGarry was demoted to Transit District 12 in the Bronx after the tawdry video surfaced.
Mekuli later apologized and said that she did not know McGarry was married.
