San Francisco Cop’s 100 MPH Ride Video Probed
(SAN FRANCISCO) — San Francisco police are investigating a video posted on Facebook by one of its police sergeants showing what could have been the officer and his friends traveling through the city’s Broadway Tunnel at 100 mph.
The video, posted in September, was removed Wednesday along with the Facebook page of a police sergeant whose legal name is Carl T. The video showed a driver stepping on the gas from the Larkin Street stop at the Russian Hill side of the tunnel, zooming through it toward Chinatown at almost 100 miles per hour in an 35 miles per hour zone.
San Francisco police were still confirming whether or not Sgt. T was the driver, whether he was on duty at the time, and driving under the influence.
“This case is still under review … Any time we have a possible violation or any type of misconduct by our staff it is protocol to refer the matter to administrative investigation,” Officer Carlos Manfredi, spokesperson from the San Francisco Police Department told ABC News. “We have no further results on the investigation yet and Sgt. T is still on staff.”
The “SFist” blog carried the news of the video in September and extracted comments from T’s Facebook post which gathered 31 likes and 19 comments. Carl T’s posting read, “Broadway tunnel. 100 Miles per hour in the Lambo.”
Carl T. recently made news for legally changing his last name from Tannenbaum to T so his entire name would not be put on his badge.
