Back in October we posted a video of Florida Highway Patrol Trooper D.J. Watts engaging in a high-speed pursuit of off-duty Miami Police Officer Fausto Lopez. That incident occurred on October 11, 2011. Following the incident of Watts Vs Lopez a Florida Highway Patrol car was covered in fecal matter on November 5, 2011 . Some news sites are speculating that this was retaliation by local law enforcement on Florida Highway Patrol for pulling over a Miami cop. The Florida Highway Patrol car was parked at the residence of Trooper Joe Sanchez in Miami, Fl. Unfortunately there were no witnesses or arrest made.

On October 11, 2011, Florida Highway Patrol Trooper D. J. Watts engages in a high-speed pursuit of off-duty Miami Police Officer Fausto Lopez and removes Officer Lopez from his vehicle at gunpoint.
