I turned onto Winchester from Mayfield and had gone about 50ft on Winchester from  Mayfield when I flipped Officer Eden off while he was heading north into the intersection at a red light.

There were .2 miles in between us when I stopped at the Haverford Dr. intersection and that’s when he was able to turn around at the Sunoco to head back South in my direction.

It is about 430ft from Haverford Dr. to Beacon Ave. where Eden came flying up behind me and then had to slow down drastically to stay at pace with me heading south on Winchester.

It’s .2 miles from Beacon Ave. to Bluebell Dr. and another .2 miles from Bluebell Dr. to where Officer Eden activated his emergency lights to pull me over and where I came to a complete stop, in between 1848 and 1856 Winchester Rd. right in front of the green waist high post.

Within the .2 miles after Bluebell Dr., I was able to come to three complete stops and waited three seconds before I proceeded south on Winchester to go to work. (Stop signs on Winchester are located at Chickadee Ln., Meadow Wood blvd., and Golfway Ln.)

My vehicle is an 08 Honda Civic Si sedan with a 6-speed manual transmission. I stayed at 28mph in 3rd gear, between 2.5-2.7rpms

Officer Eden insists that his department can and will run stop signs with no emergency lights. He also admitted in the video to turning around because I flipped him off, but claims I then sped up to get away from him.

I was also fired because of this event.

Why would someone run from a cop, let alone speed away from one that they had watched turn around and head back into the direction that they were heading?
