Evangelina Paredes – Evangelina Parades, the woman asked by a Stickney Illinois law enforcement officer for a date after he ticketed, reveals how he went about tracking her down.
She tells the Inquister that she found a note on her car from Officer Chris Collins a couple days after he gave her a speeding ticket. He used the law enforcement’s data base to find out where she lived in Chicago.
The note he left read, “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… 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… I did cost you $132 — least I can do is buy you dinner,” Collins wrote.
Now not only is Paredes rejecting the offer but is suing Collins for abusing his position as an authority figure and violating her privacy.
In the suit, that is seeking unspecified damages, the paper work reads, “The letter caused plaintiff to suffer great fear and anxiety… Plaintiff could not believe that a police officer would use his access to her personal information to find her home and stalk her… (Collins used his) 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.”
