A Florida woman pulled over a cop she says was speeding to tell him to slow down. Now, according to CBS Miami, an investigation is underway.
The unnamed Miami police officer was pulled over by the concerned citizen in the video posted last Friday. The woman, YouTube user Claudi Castillo, posted three different videos. She had her phone recording her view from the steering wheel as she narrated.
She said the officer was going between 80 and 100 MPH as she was trying to catch up with him. She told CBS Miami, the reason she chased him down was because he drove so fast past her, it made her car shake.
In the first video, she said she caught up to him and honked and flashed her lights. She said she was unsure if he ignored her but he was still driving recklessly. She said he's doing between 80 and 100 MPH as she was trying to catch him and was concerned that he was endangering the public:
In video two, she says that she finally pulled up next to him and asked him to pull over. He pulls to the shoulder on a busy Miami highway and seems to be stopping. Then he continues on as she keeps talking.
"I'm sure he's a good guy but nobody is above the law," she said. ''You're the leader in the community, you need to be an example in the community."
She said she wasn't able to clip the video to show how reckless he was driving. Then he takes an exit and she's right behind him before the video cuts out again:
The final video shows the confrontation she had with the officer. She explained why she pulled him over.
“I pushed 80 to try to catch up with you and I was still, you know, eating your dust. You were leaving me behind and I was going 80 miles per hour. And, I just want to know what’s the emergency,” Castillo said.
The officer seemed stunned that he was going that fast.
“I don’t know how fast I was going, but I can tell you this. I’m on my way to work right now. I don’t believe I was speeding but you're entitled to your opinion,” the officer replied.
He then apologized and said he would be sure to slow down:
