It’s not often that you hear of a random civilian pulling over a police officer for a moving violation. But then Claudia Castillo is not your ordinary motorist. In a series of YouTube clips, she chronicled her pursuit of a speeding Miami-Dade cop car and proceeded to tell the unidentified officer about his speeding.
As you’ll see in the videos, Castillo gives the officer a strong taste of his own medicine. “The reason I pulled you over today is because I saw you, since Miller Drive when you were first jumping onto the Palmetto, and you were pushing 90 miles an hour,” Castillo tells the officer as he made his way to her passenger-side window.
The best part of all of this might be the cop’s response, as he apologizes for and even asks Castillo if she wants his name or badge number.
If only all cops were this accountable.
