Chicago resident Evangelina Paredes was issued a speeding ticket in Stickney, Illinois and, then, drove away. Unbeknownst to her, it was love at first sight for issuing police officer Chris Collins. The smitten cop illegally used Department of Motor Vehicle records to locate Paredes’ home address and, then, went to her house.
Collins left the following note on her car:
“It’s Chris … that ugly bald Stickney cop who gave you a ticket. I know this may seem crazy and you’re probably right, but truth is I have not stopped thinking about you since. 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.”
Collins added he’d understand if Paredes never called — but said he wanted to make it up to her for giving her a speeding ticket. “I did cost you $132 — least I can do is buy you dinner.”
Paredes is now suing the officer claiming she was fearful that a policeman could stalk her. The officer told a local news outlet that he had no bad intentions. He just wanted a date.
