Creeper Cop Busted For Illegally Obtaining Info About Woman, Adding Her On Facebook

Sometimes it’s cute to hear stories about men who do everything in their power to find out more about the women they like…That is, if they pursue the ladies without seeming like Edward Cullen.
But one police officer unfortunately gave off stalky vampire vibes when he used the New Jersey motor vehicle data base to dig up personal information about a female motorist, who he did not stop, issue a ticket, or even talk to. No, he merely wanted her digits and what not, so he violated the system to contact her and add her on Facebook.
Here’s what went down with Officer Jeffrey M. Tyther, a 14-year veteran of the township force:
Tyther was on duty in a marked police cruiser when he saw the motorist pass him. He pulled up behind her, then pulled next to her and waved at her. At no time did Tyther or the other motorist stop their vehicles or speak, Laughlin said.
Tyther used the motorist’s personal information to find her on Facebook. He attempted to “friend” her within a few days of seeing her on the road. When she didn’t respond to the friend request Tyther emailed her, identifying himself as the officer who waved at her earlier that week, [a spokesperson] said. The woman told a co-worker about the incident and the co-worker contacted police.
Hey, that chick needs to lighten up. I mean, who wouldn’t want to be friends with a terrifying, creepy, stalker, rando-cop on Facebook?! …Right?
