Three days after being arrested by NYPD Officer Carlos Becker for misdemeanor drunk driving on March 11th, 30-year-old Erica Noonan says she began receiving texts from the officer begging her to go on a date with him. When she finally did, she blacked out from drinking and woke up with a black eye in Becker's Long Island home.

Some of the texts have been released to the press:

Noonan finally went out on a date with Becker on March 24, eating at a sushi restaurant in Westchester and then going to a bar in the Bronx. After several tequila shots, Noonan blacked out. She woke up the next morning with her clothes on and a black eye.

“He was sitting on the couch watching TV,” Noonan told the Daily News. “I said, ‘What happened to my eye?’ and he was very nonchalant. He said, ‘You fell. Don’t you remember falling?’”

For obvious reasons, police officers are prohibited from socializing with people they arrest, no matter how much fun it might seem to party with perps in A.C. or watch TV while they pass out in the other room with a black eye. Becker has been stripped of his badge while the NYPD Internal Affairs Bureau investigates.
