Watch the Florida Highway Patrol chase down a speeding Miami cop in his own squad car

You're a Miami police officer, so high-speed blasts down the highway probably aren't anything new to you. Therefore, it makes perfect sense that when you're late to your off-duty moonlighting gig, you'd run your marked, Miami-Dade Police cruiser up to 120 miles per hour through traffic and do whatever it took to clock in on time, right?

For officer Fausto Lopez, this also means leading an on-duty Florida Highway Patrol police officer on a five-minute chase down the turnpike when she wanted to pull him over for reckless driving. And since it's hard to get to work in handcuffs, we imagine Lopez didn't make it to his gig at the appointed hour.

There are two videos of the tense incident after the jump, the first is an ABC News report, the second is priceless dash-cam footage of the pursuit. As Lopez is being cuffed, he apparently says, "Oh man, I can't believe this." He's not the only one. Lopez is apparently only been charged with one count of reckless driving.

If the NY state troopers local to Long Island weren't in bed with the Suffolk Sheiriffs, I wouldn't be surprised if this happened here. Cops shouldn't feel above the law, and I've even seen Suffolk, Nassau, Suffolk Sheriffs and State Troopers on the phone while driving. Special treatment pisses me off.
