We’re all deserving of love and companionship, but this New Jersey State Trooper just went about it the wrong way.

A state trooper in New Jersey was arrested and suspended after he was charged with pulling over women to ask them out on dates and then trying to cover it up.

The trooper, identified as 37-year-old Marquice Prather, was arrested last Friday for third-degree tampering with public records and fourth-degree falsifying or tampering with records.
State police began looking into the three-year veteran after several women complained about his conduct.

Investigators found that Prather showed a pattern of stopping women between the ages of 20 and 35 to ask them to go on dates or for their phone numbers.

Investigators said Prather would turn off his wireless microphone during the stops and falsely report it had malfunctioned. They also said he manipulated data to conceal that he was targeting a high number of women drivers.

The trooper joined the police force in 2013 and makes an annual salary of $60,749, state payroll records showed. He was assigned to the division’s Holmdel barracks, which patrols the Garden State Parkway.
If convicted of charges, Prather could face three to five years in state prison and would have to pay a fine as high as $15,000.
