A suburban Chicago cop could be in trouble for mixing business with pleasure, after a woman says he gave her a speeding ticket...then tracked her down to ask her out.
FOX News Radio's Steve Rappoport reports:
Chris Collins may be one of Stickney, Illinois' finest, but not exactly one of the smoothest. A woman suing the officer claims he tracked her down for a date after giving her a speeding ticket in October.
Evangelina Paredes alleges she found a note on her car two days later saying, "It's Chris, that ugly, bald Stickney cop who gave you that ticket. I did cost you $132, least I could do is buy you dinner."
The lawsuit, seeking unspecified damages, also accuses Collins of abusing his police powers. Collins tells FOX he just wanted a date and meant no harm.
