Angelica, 26, confessed to newspaper Aftonbladet that she may have been driving too fast in Sigtuna, central Sweden, on Monday night when she was pulled over by what she thought was an undercover police car with flashing blue lights.
The man in the car told her she was driving too fast, but he told her they could skip the formalities and that she could drive on, wrote Aftonbladet.
However, this exchange didn’t seem to satisfy the infatuated inspector, who proceeded to follow the woman and pull her over again several minutes later, this time asking for her phone number “just in case something happened”, according to the paper.
The woman obliged, and was bewildered to receive a text after midnight from the passionate patrolman:
“Hello, I want to meet you in Upplands-Väsby tomorrow, what time suits you? Just so we can talk a little. And you can get a free coffee,” said the text, according to the paper.
“You got to keep your driving license and you got away without a fine. You were so cute in your blue jeans ;) Can you be in Väsby around 5pm if that works?” it continued.
”I didn’t know what to believe, I thought it was completely sick,” the woman told the paper, adding that she rang the man later, confirmed that he claimed to be a policeman, then told him that she would report him.
The man allegedly had no equipment, badge, or uniform to indicate he worked for the law enforcement.
The local police were left scratching their heads at the matter.
Mats Johnsson, the officer leading the investigation, claims the police are taking the matter seriously, and cannot yet say if the covetous cop was indeed an official officer.
“This is not good, whether it was actually a policeman or not,” he told Aftonbladet.
“It would be ludicrous if it turned out to be a colleague, but you just never know,” he said.
Meanwhile, the woman, who claims to have lost faith in the police, has begun to avoid the roads where the incident occurred, fearing another meeting with the man, reports the paper.
According to Aftonbladet , the “policeman” has since stopped answering his phone.
