State trooper arrests police officer

Monday, October 31, 2011

From the Miami Herald:
A Miami Police officer was arrested at gunpoint and charged with reckless driving after allegedly leading the Florida Highway Patrol on a seven-minute chase in his squad car at speeds that reached 120 mph on Florida’s Turnpike in Broward County earlier this month.

A highway patrol trooper pulled out her gun to arrest Fausto López, 35, after he reportedly ignored repeated warnings to stop.

Watts ordered López to step out of the vehicle, handcuffed and detained him. As he was getting out of his vehicle, López explained to Watts that he was driving so quickly because he was late to his off-duty job, which started at 7 a.m.

López could not be reached for comment. As of Saturday, he was still assigned to regular duty at the Miami Police Department, said Cmdr. Delrish Moss, "because at this point it’s a traffic offense."

López was released, but was criminally charged with reckless driving, which is considered a second-degree misdemeanor.

Like a fucking boss. Simple.

It's nice to know that they're not above the law.
