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.
