After Being Caught, Police Officer Applies Fine to Himself for Speeding

The police chief of the little city of Oklahoma stated that he issued a fine against himself for speeding. Justin Burch was caught after a video captured him speeding without a doubt.

Justin Burch posted an apology on his Facebook page saying he was “wrong for driving at 75 and 80 mph”.

The officer admitted not being sure if he would have issued a fine against himself if there isn’t a video proving it. He also said he had a “reason to be in a hurry”. Despite that, he accepted being charged for his mistake. The fine value? US$300.00
