I have never seen anything like this out of the 1000s of police videos I've seen in all my life.
I've heard about these incidents before but it's the 1st time seeing one.

HOLLYWOOD, Fla. -- A city of Miami police officer was caught driving 120 mph and a Florida Highway Patrol trooper followed him for several minutes before issuing him a ticket, said FHP.

Fausto Lopez, 35, was charged with reckless driving.
According to the police report, Lopez was driving at a high rate of speed in a marked police car southbound on the Florida Turnpike near mile marker 62 at 6:28 a.m. on Oct. 11 when a FHP trooper saw him crossing over several lanes.

That FHP trooper followed him and tried pulling him over, but he first ignored her sirens, according to the report.

Dash cam video showed Lopez's car as the sirens and emergency lights of the trooper's car were activated.

The police report said Lopez slowed down to 78 mph before speeding up again.
Seven minutes and 12 miles after first seeing Lopez drive past, he pulled over. In the video, the trooper was seen drawing her gun before handcuffing Lopez.

"I never saw you," Lopez told the FHP trooper.

"How do you not see a car with blue lights in the dark," she asked him.

Lopez told the trooper that he was on his way to an off-duty job at a school in Coconut Grove.

"I had to get there by 7 a.m. and didn't think I was going to make it," he said.

Lopez also asked that the FHP trooper remove the handcuffs.

"Honestly, the handcuffs are not necessary, ma'am. I'm very cooperative," he told her.

"You know what you are to me? You are a criminal," she told him.
Lopez was eventually released and cited for a moving violation.

Their titles are not what I used in a search.

My power was out from that snow storm that day it was posted, long gone by the time my power came back on so I must have missed it. I don't visit the front page.

Mods feel free to delete at your leisure, no need to clutter the boards with duplicates any more than they are.
