After being barred from every branch of LA Fitness and suspended from her role on a radio show, Dani Mathers probably thought things couldn’t get much worse, but it looks like she was sorely mistaken.
The Playboy model and former Playmate of the Year, who recently hit headlines for posting an image of a naked woman on Snapchat, has now learned that police in L.A are investigating the matter.
Dani, who has apologised for her actions and insisted that the image was meant for a friend and not her Snapchat followers, has – understandably – received little sympathy following her major social media faux pas.
Commenting on their decision to revoke Dani’s gym membership, Jill Greuling, the executive vice president of LA Fitness said; “Her behaviour is appalling and puts every member at risk of losing their privacy.”
“Our written rules are very clear: cellphone usage and photography are prohibited in the locker rooms. This is not only our rule, but common decency,” she added.
While the LAPD intends to pursue an investigation into the ‘illegal distribution’ of the image, they are unable to proceed until the woman at the centre of the image presents herself to authorities.
According to The Independent, police in LA are urging the woman to contact police, saying: “Without a victim, we can’t go forward.”
With LAPD eager to pursue their line of enquiry, defence attorney Lou Shapiro has asserted that the Mather's actions have far-reaching implications.
"A judge could take a dim view of the action and really want to see her punished," he told the LA Times this week.
