A police officer in Haines City, Florida who was scanning video footage of traffic violations Tuesday came across his patrol car running a red light.
According to WTSP-TV, Haines City Police Officer Tim Glover saw his car in the Sept. 8 video. He remembered he got lunch and was turning left at an intersection when the light quickly turned from yellow to red. Up until Glover saw the video, he said he was unaware of the violation.
“I realized that the vehicle did look familiar, and I was hoping it wasn’t mine, but I walked out and confirmed it was mine out in the parking lot,” he said.
He informed his boss about the infraction and was given a $160 ticket.
“I’ve always been taught that if you’ve done something wrong, to take responsibility for what you’ve done and accept your punishment,” Glover said. “In this part, it was paying the fine and getting my letter of reprimand.”
