Miami-Dade police officer Albert Coriat apparently thinks law enforcement agencies giving each other special treatment is more important than public safety.

Back on February 16th, Coriat, who is 40, popped an illegal U-turn on the Florida Turnpike near mile marker 59. An FHP trooper spotted the illegal maneuver and pulled Coriat over. Coriat told the trooper he was a Miami-Dade police officer and provided his badge and ID as proof.


He said he had consumed only two beers, but the trooper concluded that his blood shot eyes and alcohol-tinged breath suggested he had more.

According to CBS Miami, Coriat said that he was fine to drive and asked the trooper to let him go.

"The subject then stated not to arrest him because he was a police officer and we needed to stick together," reads the arrest report.

Coriat then failed a field sobriety test and later refused to provide a breath alcohol test. He was arrested. On the way to the holding facility Coriat threw up in the back of the cab. He then fell asleep still caked in his own vomit in the holding cell.

He stands charged of DUI.

The bigger picture needs to be looked at here.  Society is so hypocritical and pathetic as you all.   All of the opinions are biased and one sided....a side of "hatred to police"....no matter what.  I could have easily been DUI in my twenties.  Everyone on here could have easily been DUI driving home from a wedding.  This so called "trooper" surely could have blown over .08 at some time in his life....but he made it home behind the wheel.  MDPD has stopped countless drunk drivers....by coincidence...not because they were driving recklessly.....and simply have held on to the keys until a friend or family can come by and pick the driver and his car up.  This "trooper" even had the audacity to write all of his comments on the arrest form.....that is pure maliciousness.  Every article leaves the troopers name out....conveniently.  Don't matter....word gets around quick in our small world bud......
