A New York police detective says she's about to file a lawsuit alleging the head of the Bronx detectives is creating a hostile work environment—by comparing her to the female human protagonist of the Twilight series and himself to her werewolf sweetie. "I believe there's something wrong with him," Dawn DelValle-Sanchez tells the Daily News, basing her judgment on messages such as "Do werewolves kill humans just like vampires?"

Michael Gabriel has also been getting handsy, as allegedly line-crossing 51-year-olds have been known to. Not so age-appropriate was a text reading "I ask for ur forgiveness and another chance (Think Bella forgiving Jacob)." DelValle-Sanchez, who says she's acting through the courts rather than the department because she doesn't think her complaint would be taken "seriously," has a simple goal: "I just want to come to work and be left alone."
