Texas police chief, Jason Collier, has now been arrested following the wild accusations made against him that he tricked more than twenty women into marrying, getting engaged to, and dating him.
Read on to find out why he's now facing criminal charges...
Now, the mind-blowing story of Jason Collier has been spreading online like an out of control wildfire in the last few weeks.
Collier is (or should we say, was) the police chief of the Stinnett, Texas Police Department, and his outrageous story has caused an internet minefield after his now ex-girlfriend, Cecily Steinmetz, publically accused him of living a double/triple life.
People just couldn't believe what they were hearing...

Supposed to be sleeping, but got stuck in the #JasonCollier story... Popcorn anyone?— OK (@alltidok) January 28, 2021
So, it all started when Jason was busted by his ex-girlfriend, Cecily, a few weeks ago.
She wrote on Facebook:
"Chief Jason Collier is living a double/triple life. I was his girlfriend until yesterday. He lied to me and presented me with fake annual documents when I found out he was married. I also found out about a 2nd girlfriend, Kristi, last night. He has lied to us, our children, and asked us both to marry him. He is a poor representative of your town. He would also visit me in Amarillo when he was on shift. We just returned from vacation in Taos on Sunday - meanwhile, his other GF was told he was on a work assignment in Portland, OR."
At that moment in time, it was believed that Collier was simply 2-timing both women...
But then, it emerged that he was actually married... with children.
After the story started gaining traction online, more and more women started coming forward claiming to be the girlfriends of Jason...
And soon enough, around fifteen women claimed to be his girlfriend, according to social media.
And of course, everyone has been asking the same thing...
That Jason Collier thread on fb is a novel or movie in the making. What a fool playing all those women.— Bexx (@bexxillustrates) January 28, 2021
Who are all of the women who Collier tricked?!
While the exact number of women and the fine details are currently unknown...
One amazing lady on social media has decided to break things down for us to give us an idea of who Collier was stringing along.
So, just to quickly recap...
Cecily was the first of Collier's girlfriends and she was the one who came forward and exposed him for who he is.
The second girlfriend identified was Kirsti Shaffer...
Who came forward and claimed to be with Collier in December... and she also claimed that she was engaged to him.
Then Cecily found out about his current wife, Opal.
She has not made any statements or come forward, and has requested privacy during this difficult time.
And it didn't stop there...
Cecily's post was shared over 96,000 times on Facebook, and more and more women have come forward with stories.
A woman named Heather Owen came forward and explained that Collier was her boyfriend who had promised to propose to her and "move to Wyoming" with her.
And as of right now...
This is the list of the women we so far know about, all thanks to graphic designer Christy Jedigoddess!
And as you can see...

There's a lot of them.
Collier has fallen completely off the radar since his antics were unveiled and is yet to speak out about his new online fame...

But it seems that the Stinnett Police Department decided to take action immediately by placing Collier on leave indefinitely while they investigate what has gone on.
A statement was issued by the department shortly after Cecily's original post.
The City of Stinnett is aware of the current situation surrounding the Chief of Police Jason Collier," City Manager Durk Downs wrote in a statement on Facebook the following day.
"The city is taking this seriously and will be looking into any violations of city policy."
But now, another twist in the tale has emerged.
Not only has Collier officially lost his job, but he's now been arrested and faces charges for tampering with government records with intent to defraud: namely, a fake marriage annulment, according to KAMR.
Sgt. Cindy Barkley of the Texas Department of Public Safety explained:
"Collier allegedly sent a text message to the victim with a fraudulent government record attached. The document was a fraudulent marriage annulment."
She then said he'd been charged with tampering with a government document with the intent to defraud — a state jail felony, and his bond was set at $10,000.
So it's safe to say that things really aren't looking good for Collier at the moment!
Make sure to stay posted for updates... because we're sure there will be many!
