This shouldn't be too shocking.

I have seen cops drive like maniacs.

The other day I was Cut OFF by a cop in my town.

I was coming to a red light, and the cruiser had his green going straight across me when all of sudden he changed his mind, made a right turn, and came straight into my lane and headed straight towards me.

I actually had to stop 10 meters before the red light, so HE wouldn't hit ME loll..

He then got into his correct lane, and he just looked straight ahead, even though I was looking at him with the WTH face!
