MANHATTAN – He puts the ‘fine’ in New York’s Finest. A ‘hot cop’ on-duty serving-and-protecting at Monday’s star-studded Met Gala set hearts ablaze as a TikTok of the Upper East Side police officer garnered more than half a million views from swooning fans of the good-looking lawman.

“So everyone is posting about the Met Gala but can we talk about the hottest policeman on earth?,” Upper East Side resident Edenavy captioned her TikTok of the strikingly handsome cop stationed outside The Mark Hotel on East 77th Street, where some celebrities were staying ahead of the Met Gala on Monday.

Edenavy says The Mark is one of her favorite places in the neighborhood, so she went to have a drink on Monday despite all the commotion caused by fashion’s biggest night out— and that’s when it happened. 

“People were waiting for celebrities, and I saw him,” the married 25-year-old real estate broker told Upper East Site

“Like, what? He is the real celebrity,” Edenavy added.

Immediately, video of the ‘hot cop’ spread like wildfire, getting more than 37,000 likes and more than six-hundred comments— including from the officer’s family and friends as well as quite a number of smitten women. 

“How come he didn’t walk down the carpet?” asked Roxieemma.

“Everyone has a cat stuck in a tree all of a sudden,” said Maribel Garcia.

“I’m about to commit a crime,” Rachel wrote.

The NYPD officer’s jaw-dropping good looks and model-like features had some comparing him to a Greek god and ‘every princesses hero’ in a Dinsey movie.

“He needs a horse and a wind machine for that hair,” reads one comment. 

They were half right— he’s not a god, but Upper East Site has learned the hunky officer is a proud Greek American.

Some people weren’t buying it, accusing the ‘hot cop’ of being a plant— a model or actor paid to be in an NYPD uniform specifically for the A-list event.

“I wouldn’t be surprised if they put a male model in a police uniform just for aesthetics,” said Johanna Falzone, “that seems very on-brand for this type of event!”

Upper East Site has identified the ‘Hottest Policeman on Earth’ as NYPD Officer Panagiotis Koutsoulidakis– who goes by Officer Kouts– and serves the in the 19th Precinct covering our beloved Upper East Side. 

He’s not just eye candy either, last fall, Officer Kouts was among three UES cops commended by then-Police Commissioner Dermot Shea for their actions after encountering a man with a gun at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer— the officers de-escalated the situation and no injuries were reported in the incident, police said at the time.

Unfortunately for his admirers, we’ve learned that Officer Kouts is married, so committing crimes will not make for a good introduction.

“Sorry to break the bad news ladies, he is happily married to a friend of mine,” said Angeliki Chris. 

With his new found celebrity status due to her TikTok, we asked Edenavy whether Officer Kouts should be invited to the Met Gala next year.

“Definitely!” the 25-year-old Upper East Sider said. “I’m here for it supporting him.”
