Fausto Lopez, Infamous Speeding Cop, Fired by Miami Police
Lopez's arrest made national headlines and caused something of a bizarre feud between the FHP and the MPD.
FHP trooper Donna Jane Watts clocked Lopez speeding at 120 mph back in October 2011. Watts followed the squad car for seven minutes before Lopez eventually pulled over. She feared perhaps that the car had been stolen and arrested Lopez at gunpoint. Lopez said that he was late for an off-duty job.
Lopez was sentenced to 100 hours of community service earlier this year for the crime.
Now, following an internal investigation, he's out of a job.
The investigation found that Lopez had a habit of speeding more than 100 mph while off duty between September and November 2011.
