Description

MIAMI - Several police officers are under investigation after cellphone video caught them heading to a bakery on Coral Way with their emergency overhead lights flashing. The incident happened last week. Five police cars from three different agencies were first spotted southbound on Interstate 95 approaching the Rickenbacker Causeway with their emergency lights flashing. However, Local 10 News has learned there was no pursuit or emergency. Shortly before 8 a.m., the officers got off I-95 and headed toward busy Coral Way. At the intersection of Southwest 25th Road and Southwest Third Avenue, one of the officers blocked oncoming traffic so all the officers could proceed together with their emergency lights flashing. The two Miccosukee police officers, two Miami-Dade police offices and one Miami police officer ended up at Karlo Bakery, where they all had breakfast. "It was poor judgment on their behalf," Miami-Dade police Maj. Nancy Perez told Local 10 News. "They understand and their supervisors will be taking action." Perez is only speaking on behalf of the Miami-Dade officers involved. Miami police spokesman Freddie Cruz said internal affairs is looking into the incident and wouldn't comment further. The Miccosukee Police Department had no comment.
