Cop resigns after being accused of texting naked selfies to a woman he met ...

A Pennsylvania police officer has resigned after a woman accused him of sending her a series of nude selfies months after she was stopped for drunk driving. 

Ohio Township police Officer Dominic DeJulio, 30, submitted his resignation from the force on Friday, effective immediately, the New York Post reported. 

His resignation came the day after he was suspended from the police department, following Allegheny County prosecutors' decision to withdraw the drunk driving case against DeJulio's alleged selfie recipient, Michelle Benninger. 

The nude selfie saga began on August 25 at about 1am, when Benninger, 40, of Monroeville, Pennsylvania, was pulled over at a sobriety checkpoint in Emsworth, Pennsylvania, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

An unnamed officer had Benninger pull her car over, reportedly noting that she was slurring her speech and smelled of alcohol. An almost empty bottle of Corona was on the floor of the passenger seat next to her. 

DeJulio was called on to perform a field sobriety test, which indicated that Benninger was under the influence, according to his criminal complaint.  

A test would ultimately reveal that her blood-alcohol content was 0.117 — in Pennsylvania, the legal limit is a BAC of 0.08.    

Nearly two months later, on October 19, Benninger encountered DeJulio again, when she waved her preliminary hearing over the drunk driving charge. 

Benninger claimed that that day, DeJulio escorted her back to her car and admitted that he had 'drunk texted' her a few days beforehand.
