Video: Woman pulls over police officer, accuses him of speeding

A woman pulled over a police officer in Miami, accusing him of speeding -- and she got it all on video.

Claudia Castillo shared three videos Friday on YouTube chronicling her pursuit and confrontation with the officer.

“The reason I pulled you over today and I’m asking you to have come over and have a conversation,” Castillo is heard saying to the officer who pulled over, walked to her car and is seen standing at her car window. “Is because you were pushing 90 miles per hour.”

She said the officer passed her like she was standing still. She said she had to accelerate to 80 mph to catch up with him.

He said he pulled over after noticing her and thought she was having an emergency.

“I don’t know how fast I was going,” the officer said. “I don’t believe I was speeding but, like I said, you’re entitled to your opinion.”

The officer offered his name and badge number as he apologized. He said he was on his way to work.

“I apologize and I’ll be sure to slow down ma’am,” he said.
