bored cop syndrome
A popular term for a situation that occurs when a law enforcement officer has nothing to do and wants a little action by tailgating a driver who is obeying the law or by creating a response with the hope that the “victim” will do or say something interesting enough to escalate a non-event into one.
Whilst the term appears to fill a lexical void, it is obviously not a real medical syndrome.
