Chicago suburb policeman, Chris Collins, is being accused of using his position to gain access to a woman’s information so that he could ask her on a date.
Collins gave Evangelina Paredes a ticket back on Oct. 22, but then later allegedly used the ticket to do some record searching to find out her home address. He then went there and left her a note on her car asking her on a date.
“It’s Chris … that ugly bald Stickney cop who gave you that ticket…I know this may seem crazy and you’re probably right, but truth is I have not stopped thinking about you since,” it continues. “I don’t expect a girl as attractive as you to … even go for a guy like me, but I’m taking a shot anyways.”
Ms Paredes did not find the note romantic, funny or remotely inviting. She is suing Collins, the police chief and the village of Stickney where Collins is employed and accuses Collins of, “authority and position as a police officer not to protect the public, but to attempt to manipulate the plaintiff into going out on a date with him.”
