IA Probe: Speeding Miami Cop Should Be Fired

July 17, 2012  | 

VIDEO: Fla. Trooper Arrests Miami Cop at Gunpoint

The Miami Police Officer who was pulled over and held at gunpoint by a Florida Highway Patrol trooper for exceeding 100 mph while off duty should lose his job, an internal investigation found.

Officer Fausto Lopez showed a "practice and pattern" of reckless speeding while off-duty in his take-home patrol car, consistently clocking in dangerous speeds over 100 miles per hour between September and November, reports the Miami Herald.

Officer Lopez was pulled over Oct. 11. He pleaded no contest, paid $3,300 in fines, and accepted 100 hours of community service.
