    A cop gave a pretty lady a ticket then later that day he tracked her down at work and asked her out. Some say that is creepy and some say its OK.

    I say he did wrong and used info he shouldn't have to find her.

    Improper (probably unlawful) use of state data base to track her down - should face at least suspension. My wife said it would definitely creep her out totally piss her off.

    I'm guessing his CO wouldn't be too happy about this. Nor would the DA, Mayor, ect. If I was the lady, I'd be calling the local paper, and hiring a lawyer. Shouldn't be too hard to get out of whatever ticket she got, at the very least.

    There is probably more to the story. She may have tried to flirt with the officer to get out of the ticket. He was probably smart enough to know that wasn't a good idea. His method of locating her later would be the problem. IMHO Ron

    Not a good idea. It compromises his integrity and his job.
    No two ways about it.
    His superiors need to be notified.

    As she should. That is completely in appropriate and the officer should be disciplined appropriately.

    Hey Maybe the guy was swept away by her charm and beauty, falling helplessly in love at first sight loosing all sense and control and tripped over his leg. LOL

    He is in trouble either way.

    Something is missing here. She had to have told him were she worked. There is no investigative tool that provides place of employment. His poor judgement comes in when he asked her out after taking action against her. It's a matter of force of coersion because of his authority over her. She definetly beat the ticket, but a far as a suit of some sort, she hasn't been harmed or damaged.

    Try mental duress, etc. The cop is toast in the court due to "color of authority" issues.

    It is totally inapropriate..PERIOD!!!! In MD, he may get charged criminally for misuse of the MVA database and he definately would be charged departmentally for "Conduct Unbecomming" She will get at least $50,000 in her suit, most likely the PD will offer her that to settle out of court.

    There are at least 2 former deputies in VA that are no longer employed because they did this. That is two different counties with the same result. It is a NO NO.

    Just wrong and he should be fired. He used information that he had no business using. Law enforcement and the ability to obatin information about another used for the wrong reason is truly an invasion of privacy.
