VIDEO: Fla. Trooper's 100 mph Wrong Way Pursuit

A Florida Highway Patrol trooper resigned to avoid termination after an internal investigation found he had violated numerous agency policies during a wrong-way pursuit on a Pinellas County interstate.

Trooper Tim Nichols "posed a threat to public safety," according to the investigation as reported by Bay News 9.

The pursuit began at 4 a.m. on Sept. 17, 2011, after Nichols clocked a white car speeding at 120 mph in a 65 mph zone heading south on I-275 in St. Petersburg.

After the violator exited at 38th Ave. N., Nichols continued to pursue the car through a residential neighborhood. The chase reached speeds of 73 mph on narrow streets and the trooper ran eight stop signs. Nichols then followed the car south on a northbound exit ramp at I-275 and 22nd Ave. N. A commander then ordered Nichols to halt the pursuit.

The investigation also found that Nichols unholstered his weapon around a group of nurses.
