Iowa State Trooper Didn't Ticket Fellow Trooper For Speeding (Video)

Iowa State Patrol Capt. Ken Clary was given a $110 speeding ticket on Jan. 9 for a November speeding incident in which a fellow trooper let him go.

Clary was off duty when he was allegedly caught driving 92 mph in a 70 mph zone at around 7:30 a.m. by Trooper Bryan Guill on Nov. 24, 2014.

According to Sgt. Scott Bright, a spokesman for the Iowa State Patrol, Guill didn't make a written report of the stop, which was recorded on his patrol car's dashcam (video below).

Clary got out of the van he was driving, apologized and shook hands with Guill, who let him go.

Even though he was off duty, Clary was wearing his uniform while driving the vehicle, which is owned by Special Olympics Iowa, noted

"I don't know what speed he was going because there was no initial report of it," Bright told the Des Moines Register.

The news site brought the speeding video to the attention of the Iowa State Patrol via an inquiry.

It's not clear how the Iowa State Patrol decided Clary was going 22 mph over the speed limit. Iowa residents can lose their licenses if they go 25 mph over the speed limit.

Iowa State Patrol claims administrative action has been taken, but the law enforcement agency says it does not have to reveal details because personnel matters are not under Iowa's open records law.
