It unfolded like a routine traffic stop: a car pulled over for speeding, followed by a stern lecture on responsible driving and traffic safety. The alleged offender questioned whether he was really speeding but, thinking it best to move on, apologized and promised to slow down.
Now for the twist: it was the police officer accused of speeding. And he was pulled over by a civilian.
The scene played out in three cellphone videos posted on YouTube Friday by someone named Claudia Castillo, who identified herself as the driver. Filmed from the driver’s seat, the videos chronicle her pursuit of a Miami-Dade police squad car and the unidentified officer at the wheel.
