A Florida police officer is being punished for handcuffing and ticketing a doctor who was speeding to deliver a baby.

    1. C'mon — what's not to like?

      Hoof it over to Facebook to join the weird news herd.

Doctor Anthony Chidiac was driving his motorcycle ten miles over the speed limit last March when he was pulled over in Fort Lauderdale.

According to police records, when the doctor said he was on his way to a delivery, the officer replied, “What are you delivering, pizza?”

The doctor delivered the baby 15 minutes after he got out of the handcuffs and was ticketed.

The officer has agreed to a 16-day unpaid suspension rather than being fired. A citizen board will review the case April eleventh.
