MIAMI, FL -- A motorist in Miami took the law into her own hands by pulling over a police officer she accused of speeding.

In the video posted Friday by Claudia Castillo to YouTube, the footage chronicled her pursuit of a police squad car as he maneuvered through traffic.

In the first clip of the video, she says she honked at the police officer to try and get him to stop.

Eventually she was able to get the officer to pull over.

"The reason I pulled you over today," the woman said to the officer, "is because I saw you, since Miller Drive when you were first jumping onto the Palmetto, and you were pushing 90 miles an hour."

"Ok," the officer responded.

"I pushed 80 (mph) to try and catch up with you and you were still eating your dust, you were leaving me behind," she said. "I just want to know what's the emergency?"

"I don't know how fast I was going, but I can tell you this I'm on the way to work right now," the officer replied. "I don't believe I was speeding."

The officer apologized for allegedly speeding.

"It's just that I think that we all should set an example," the female driver added.
