Ariz. law­maker brags about driv­ing 140 MPH in video

Yuma Sun - - NEWS -

PHOENIX — An Ari­zona state law­maker told a sher­iff’s deputy he some­times drives as fast as 140 miles per hour af­ter he was pulled over for speed­ing.

Body cam­era footage first pub­lished by KLPZ shows state Rep. Paul Mosley telling a deputy he some­times drives “130, 140, 120” miles to get home fast to his wife. The news out­let said Mosley was al­legedly driv­ing 97 miles per hour on State Route 95 in La Paz County.

Mosley also told the of­fi­cer he had leg­isla­tive im­mu­nity. But the in­ci­dent is be­ing re­viewed by Cochise County At­tor­ney Brian McIn­tyre af­ter a re­fer­ral from the La Paz County At­tor­ney’s Of­fice.

Mosley, a Repub­li­can, is run­ning for re-elec­tion. The Ari­zona Fra­ter­nal Or­der of Po­lice with­drew its en­dorse­ment, say­ing po­ten­tially lethal speed­ing isn’t a joke.
