The Miami police chief is cracking down on 36 officers for driving off-duty at speeds sometimes exceeding 100 mph, the Sun Sentinel reports.

In the first wave of disciplinary action, which will also include some firings, Police Chief Manuel Orosa suspended officer Fausto Lopez for leading a state trooper on a notorious high-speed chase through Broward County in October.

The incident, in which the trooper arrested the officer, was captured on video and became a YouTube sensation.

The incident also prompted a Sun Sentinel probe into high-speed driving by officers that in turn led to internal investigations at a dozen South Florida departments.
