Traffic cameras often catch people trying to bend the rules by turning on red but what footage from one camera showed came as a bit of a surprise for one officer.

In surveillance video, a cruiser can be seen making a left turn when the light changed red.

What’s shocking is the officer who found the footage just happened to be the one who made that turn.

“Realized that the vehicle did look familiar and I was hoping it wasn’t mine, but I walked out and confirmed it was mine out here in the parking lot,” Officer Tim Glover said. 

Glover said he could have covered it up but he wanted to take the high road instead by issuing himself the citation.

He said he hopes his decision will help to show people that most cops are honest and will do the right thing.
