-via CBS Miami:
Fausto Lopez, the Miami police officer who made headlines after he was pulled over on the Florida Turnpike by a Florida Highway Patrol officer for speeding has been fired.

Lopez was fired by Miami Police on Thursday. This comes more than a month after an internal investigation into the matter determined that he should be terminated.

The internal probe found that Officer Lopez showed a “practice and pattern” of reckless speeding. Lopez routinely clocked speeds of more than 100 miles per hour while off duty between September and November 2011, according to the report.

  1. My guess is that of those 20-30 times he was going that fast, the time he got stopped by the FHP trooper that started all this was not the first time that he passed or was in the area of another law enforcement officer.
    I see officers going super fast quite often. I'm sure other officers and troopers saw this guy and no one did anything about it because he was one of them.
