The Random Pixels Losers Corner welcomes...

...Miami police officer Fausto Lopez.

Watch as Lopez, in the video above, is led away from his police car in handcuffs by a Florida Highway Patrol trooper after being stopped for driving 120 mph last October 11th at 6:30 in the morning.

From CBS Miami:
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.

Screen grab from an FHP dashboard camera shows Miami police officer Fausto Lopez under arrest on Oct. 11, 2011.
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.
We thought we'd pretty much heard it all, but this one takes the cake.

Driving like a dumb-ass and passing a state trooper at 120 mph.

Don't they give intelligence tests to Miami cops?

Congratulations Ofc. Lopez. You're the newest inductee into the Random Pixels Losers Corner!


  1. When the Miami PD FOP gets done with her, the trooper will be forever banished to north Florida where she'll patrol a lonely stretch of US 301 on the midnight shift for the rest of her career.

  2. Misuse of power on both sides.

  3. How on earth did the female trooper misuse her power? She's doing her job and that's commendable. He should have been arrested for fleeing instead of just getting a ticket.

  4. Great job by the FHP officer. She was 110% correct in pulling over and cuffing the MDPD officer. No one is above the law.

  5. All I can say is that the MPD officer did break the law, and the FHP officer had the right to do what she did.

    However, I do hope that the FHP officer does not get caught doing something wrong herself. Because when you do the "by the book" thing, you're going to irritate other people and they'll come back to haunt you when the opportunity arises.
