Flirty policeman forged fine notices after love let-down
thinkSPAIN , Wednesday, March 16, 2016

A POLICE officer found to have been dishing out fake parking and traffic fines to a crush who rejected him has been sentenced to four years in jail.

David R was carrying out random breathalysing tests on November 21, 2012 in the province of Barcelona when he stopped the 27-year-old woman.

She showed up positive for alcohol consumption, but the officer said the test's 'margin for error' meant she may not have been drinking, and decided not to log the incident.

Normally, if there was any doubt, the driver would be taken to the police station for further testing to ascertain exactly how much alcohol he or she had drunk.

They are said to have been chatting and eventually swapped phone numbers, and after a few days exchanged WhatsApp messages to arrange to meet in a coffee shop at a retail centre.

But before they met, an inside source told the policeman that the woman already had a long-term boyfriend and that this was obvious from her Facebook page.

The furious police officer logged four tickets over the next few months for traffic and parking offences.

Each time, the woman appealed, saying that in all four cases she had never even been to the locations where she had committed the alleged offences.

She also lodged criminal action against the policeman.

As well as a four-and-a-half-year prison term, David R has been ordered to compensate the woman to the tune of €4,500, and her traffic fines have been scrapped.
