A Miami police officer was on the receiving end of “What’s the emergency?” when a woman following him convinced him to pull over after trailing him at speeds up to 90 miles per hour as he zig-zagged in out and out traffic.
According to the Miami Herald, the series of three videos uploaded to YouTube came from a woman identifying herself as Claudia Castillo who documented her pursuit of the cop with her cell phone.
After noting several times that she was barely able to keep up with Miami-Dade police officer by driving 80, she finally got close enough to get his attention by flashing her lights and he pulled over.
In the video, the officer is seen approaching her open passenger-side window, where he was told, “The reason I pulled you over today is because I saw you, since Miller Drive when you were first jumping onto the Palmetto, and you were pushing 90 miles an hour.”
“Really?” the officer responded before adding, “OK.”
“You passed me like I was standing still,” the woman replied.
After explaining how long she had been chasing him, she asked, “I just wanted to know: what’s the emergency?”
“Um, I don’t know how fast I was going,” the officer stated. “But I can tell you this, I’m on my way to work right now. I don’t believe I was speeding. But like I said, you’re entitled to your opinion.”
He then asked Castillo if everything was fine with her, to which she replied, “Yeah, I’m fine. You were just speeding.”
“I apologize and I’ll be sure to slow down then,” he said.
She then lectured him on leadership in the community and setting an example, before declining the abashed officer’s name and badge number in exchange for a promise to be more careful in the future.
According to the Herald, rival paper Sun Sentinel won a Pulitzer Prize in 2013 after it used electronic-tolling data to show off-duty cops in squad cars driving at 130 mph down highways.
Internet blown away by Giuliani’s ‘pants-sh*tting panic’ freak out on CNN’s Cuomo
Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani received harsh reviews of his Thursday evening appearance on CNN with anchor Chris Cuomo.
Many people worried about Giuliani's mental health after watching the interview.
Here is some of what people were saying about Trump's defense attorney.
WATCH: GOP congressman hides in an elevator as veterans try to confront him about his support for Trump
On Thursday, Common Defense, an activist group of combat veterans, followed Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) through a hallway and demanded to know why he isn't doing something about President Donald Trump's lawless conduct.
Crenshaw — himself a former Navy SEAL — tried to shoo them away, and eventually ducked into an elevator to get away from them.
"How can you let a criminal like Donald Trump run roughshod over our democracy and shred everything that you and I fought for?" demanded one of the protesters on a video uploaded by the group. "Like c'mon man. Like how can you just sit there idly by and not do your duty? We need your leadership right now. You cannot be complicit in this man's crimes. It is immoral. It's laid out clearly in the Mueller report."
Rudy Giuliani goes completely off the rails in bellowing interview with CNN’s Cuomo
On Thursday night, following reports that the whistleblower in the intelligence community was complaining about a call President Donald Trump made to the Ukraine, CNN's Chris Cuomo hosted Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani, who recently tried to recruit Ukrainian officials to dig up dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden and his son. And things went off the rails quickly.
"I don't know the answer as to why it was released but I find nothing wrong in what he did," said Giuliani.
"You don't even know what he did," said Cuomo.
"I find a lot wrong in what you are covering up and what you continue to cover up and what your network continues to cover up," said Giuliani. "Go look. Go look at Joe Biden January of 2018. Bribery 100 percent."
