Woman pulls over officer she says was speeding

MIAMI, Fla.  (WCMH)– A woman in Florida recorded herself pulling over a police officer that she says was doing more than 100 mph.

According to WPTV, Claudia Castillo was driving in the Miami-Dade area when she began to record herself following a police officer that was allegedly speeding.

“He passed me with so much speed, so much force, my car shook,” Castillo told WSVN. “It scared the daylights out of me. I mean, he woke me up.”

Castillo then said on the video she had trouble keeping up with him when she reached speeds of 80 mph, and that he ignored her when she honked and flashed her lights.

WPTV reports the officer does eventually pull over and Castillo tells him on the video, “The reason I pulled you over today is because I saw you, since Miller Drive when you were first jumping onto the Palmetto [Expressway], and you were pushing 90 mph.”

The officer tells Castillo that he was on his way to work and that he didn’t believe he was speeding. Castillo posted the video to YouTube but told WSVN she didn’t do it to cast a bad light on law enforcement or the officer. “They’re not bad guys, but they are held to certain principles,” she said.

In the video the officer does apologize and tells Castillo he’ll slow down.
