BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — A Boston Police officer is off the job after prosecutors say he wrote a fake citation and sent it to a driver along with a threatening note.
Officer Christopher Curtis, hired in 2017, is suspended from the department without pay. He's charged with making a false report, witness intimidation, misleading an investigation, among other charges.
According to court documents, Curtis tailgated a man on I-93 north of Boston in his private vehicle, honking and partially forcing the alleged victim off the road.
Later, the alleged victim got a citation in the mail, demanding $790 in fines—along with the handwritten note pictured above.
"I have a 6 min video of you driving like an ASS HAT, and pulled up next to you and took your picture. Try fighting this...I DARE YOU!" the note read. "Hope it was worth it. SEE YOU in COURT."
The man who recieved the ticket did choose to fight it in court, but no record could be found of the state issuing the citation. Investigators determined the citation came from Curtis's ticketbook.
Officer Curtis allegedly told internal BPD investigators it wasn't him.
The ticket was marked to be from State Police, but the victim described Curtis's Toyota Tundra, and cell phone records show Curtis was in the area at the time.
