ORLANDO COP INVOLVED IN RECKLESS DRIVING INCIDENT
ORLANDO: An Orlando police officer faced legal trouble when he was accused of reckless driving and was pulled over by a Seminole County deputy for speeding. The situation took a surprising turn when the officer decided to flee from the confrontation, leaving authorities shocked.
Deputy Hill captured the intense encounter on his body camera, providing crucial evidence for the case. When attempting to stop Officer Alexander Shaouni, the deputy questioned the reason for the traffic stop.
Shaouni exclaimed in disbelief, “What! I’m going to work, my man. Why are you trying to pull me over as I’m going into work?”
The deputy responded, “Because you’re going 80 in a 45-mph zone.”
Shaouni, visibly frustrated, replied, “What does it look like I am dressed for?”
Ignoring the officer’s question, Deputy Hill requested to see Shaouni’s driver’s license, to which Shaouni defiantly refused with a simple “no.”
Shaouni promptly returned to his police car and sped away with his emergency lights activated. The seriousness of the situation became apparent when Deputy Hill later disclosed that Shaouni was not using any lights when he initially observed him driving at 80 miles per hour in a 45-mph zone.
The deputy explained the difficulty he faced in catching up, saying, “I had to go over 100 miles per hour to catch up with him.”
Video footage of the incident showed the Orlando police cruiser maneuvering around another vehicle before the deputy could position his patrol car in front of Shaouni to initiate a traffic stop.
Following the incident, Shaouni has been suspended from duty while a comprehensive investigation into the allegations of reckless driving is conducted.
