MIAMI, FL – Buckle up for Miami Speed, starring Claudia Castillo, with special appearance by Miami-Dade officer Lead Foot Copper pulled over by Castillo who caught him speeding.
Castillo: "The reason I pulled you over today and asking you to have a conversation is because I saw you since Miller Drive and you were pushing 90 miles an hour.”
Officer: “Really? OK.”
Claudio Castillo says she became Citizen Cop Castillo after a squad car passed her at a really, really high rate of speed.
She says it whipped passed her fast enough to shake her car. That’s when she started up her video camera and followed him.
Castillo signaled him and got him to pull over. He apparently thought she had an emergency, but that changed when she started grilling him.
Castillo: "You were leaving me behind, and I was going 80 miles an hour. And I just wanted to know what's the emergency?"
Officer: "I don't know how fast I was going, but I can tell you I’m on the way to work. I don't believe I was speeding."
Officer Lead Foot apologized, but the Miami-Dade police are investigating, so he may have some explaining to do.
Meantime, Officer Claudia continues to patrol the mean streets of Miami to make sure Miami speed doesn’t turn into a vice.
