Turns out that not even police chiefs are immune to speeding tickets. You just don’t expect them to give one to themselves!
Police Chief Justin Burch did just that, though. It seems like he only gave himself the speeding ticket after being caught on video, though!
Burch posted an apology on the police department’s Facebook page, saying he was “wrong in traveling at 75 to 80 mph”, which was clearly above the speed limit.
He made good on writing himself a $300 speeding ticket and plans to pay it in full in order to be held accountable for his actions. While he swears he had a “reason for being in a hurry” he did apologize!
We’re still betting this never would have happened if he wouldn’t have been caught on the video, though, but who wouldn’t?
