New Jersey Police Superintendent Rick Fuentes

Last week, New Jersey State Police New Jersey State Police Superintendent Rick Fuentes got stopped for speeding on the Garden State Parkway in New Jersey.

A state trooper pulled him over for speeding in Paramus, N.J..  Fuentes was driving an unmarked State Police-issued Chevy Tahoe.

No surprises here…once he realized who he’d pulled over, the trooper didn’t give Fuentes a ticket.

Fuentes must have realized how bad this looked so he contacted the State Police Office of Professional Standards to report the stop and was later issued a speeding ticket.  He’s supposed to be on the receiving end of “disciplinary action” in the form of a written reprimand – basically a slap on the wrist.  I often wonder – if this is one incident we all found out about, how many times does this happen that we NEVER find out about?

Here’s the story.
