Marked Miami Police Car Pulled Over By FHP For Speeding & Reckless Driving

(CBS)   A City of Miami Police officer was pulled over by the Florida Highway Patrol after allegedly excessively speeding on the Turnpike.

According to the incident report, the FHP officer was traveling southbound on the Turnpike on October 11th at around 6:30 a.m. near mile marker 62 when a marked Miami Police cruiser passed her at a high rate of speed.

“Based on her observation of the driving pattern of the vehicle she conducted a traffic stop and detained the driver to determine why he was driving in that fashion,” said FHP Sgt. Mark Wysocky.

The trooper activated her emergency lights and attempted to pull over the car, but the report claims the car sped ahead weaving in and out of traffic. The trooper noted that at time, the car reached speeds in excess of 120 miles per hour.

When the trooper was finally able to pull the car over at mile marker 50.5. She approached the car with her gun drawn and noticed that the driver was a City of Miami police officer in full uniform. The officer, identified as Fausto Lopez, 35, told the trooper that en route to an off-duty detail and he had to be there by 7:00 a.m.

The officer was placed in handcuffs and detained in the back of the FHP cruiser while the trooper investigated. The officer was later released and cited for reckless driving.

City of Miami Police Det. Willie Moreno told CBS4’s Maggie Newland that the case is in the court’s hands right now.

Once the court process is completed, then the department will determine whether there were administrative violations and whether to take action.

  • What about giving that asshole a speeding ticket!!!!!…This jerk should be suspended….

    If that was a non cop driver, they’d be in jail & would have to post bail….I sure hope Popeye will be following up on this story….

  • To an “off-duty” engagement…
    Should be treated as any citizen in that situation – lose his license, sent to driving school, likely lose his job, his house, his marriage, and finally kill himself with a stolen pistol under a bridge.

  • I hope that female cop does not drink at bars, she might just get arrested by the speeding cop. What a twist.

  • I used to ask my dad hypothetical questions about whether things like this might happen. At that time, back in the 70’s, such a thing seemed very absurd. Seems like the real world has finally caught up with the wonderings of a child in the 70’s.

  • Don’t worry, this guy will be back back out on the streets “protecting” you right away. `You really think the courts will see this as a serious matter? Get real, this might as well be a practical joke for all the honest impact it will have, IMHO.

  • I was once involved in a high speed chase topping 140+ on the Palmetto Expressway, I was chasing someone.. Not a single cop ever pulled us over and no im not a cop.
