DailyMail- A New Mexico cop is accused of sparing a woman DUI charges after he started dating her following a traffic stop, according to reports.
State Police Officer Marvin Goke arrested the woman, Angela Torres, 34, on May 2, 2014, after she was seen swerving through a street in Albuquerque in her Lexus.
Dash cam footage of the incident shows Torres wearing a denim mini-skirt during the stop and telling Goke: 'Yeah, I…had a bad breakup so I have a lot on my mind right now.'
However, eight months after the arrest, all charges against Torres were dropped when Goke failed to show up for a court appearance.
Then two months ago, an internal complaint was filed against Goke.
He has now been placed on administrative leave as the complaint is investigated.
While State Police will not comment on the basis of the complaint, local station KRQE are reporting that Goke is in a relationship with Torres and has been for some time.
Facebook photos show the pair seemingly 'loved up'.
Torres has commented on one of the photos saying: 'My guy!'
Other comments from friends speak about what a nice couple the two make.
Credit where credit is due. It's never right into enter into a relationship with someone based solely on an ulterior motive. However, if you are going to do so, the most commendable, for lack of a better word, reason to do so is to free yourself from the burdens of a DUI charge. Hey, most of the time women try to find a rich guy so they can help themselves to his money. This women isn't trying to take his money, she was just trying to protect her own. DUI's are expensive as shit. Luckily I don't have one despite some very questionable decision making in my past. However, if I did I might very well think about bending over backwards for a guy with a tribal tattoo just to have it expunged from my record. Maybe it's not the most noble affair, but it's certainly a profitable one.
Let's say we were going to give these two the benefit of the doubt. A cop meeting his soulmate after pulling her drunk ass over after a night on the town isn't exactly straight out of a romantic comedy, but hey, fate works in mysterious ways. Who am I to say they aren't perfect for each other? If they are perfect for each other who can blame this cop for failing to show up to court? First, I didn't know you could be free of a DUI just because the arresting officer didn't show up to court. I feel like cops refuse to show up to court like 95% of the time, but maybe that's just because I get stupid moving violations that they can't be bothered to acknowledge. Second of all, men will do anything to avoid the wrath of their significant other. Can you imagine how long you would be sleeping on the couch if you did your job and showed up to court, thus taking thousands upon thousands of dollars out of your girlfriend's wallet and leaving her without a license? Jesus Christ, that's the equivalent of Officer Goke arresting himself. Where do you think that money is coming from? The drunk that met the love of her life during a roadside sobriety test? Something tells me she's not swimming in benjamins. Who do you think is driving her around when she loses her license? It's certainly not her dumb ass friend that sat shotgun while she used the curb to turn her car into a low rider. Marvin Goke may have let this woman off because she was she girlfriend, but if we are being honest, he only did it for his own happiness. Fucking men...One day we will learn that some pussy is better left patrolled, but it probably won't be until after we penetrate it.
