Man pulls Cop over for Speeding

A YouTube video of an Accomack County Sheriff's deputy speeding has become the talk of the Eastern Shore. The driver who videotaped the deputy later confronted him.
"I'm coming for you," the driver says on tape. "You can't run baby."
What could be considered a dangerous way to prove a point has become an internet favorite.
"I was in shock that someone was stupid enough to actually do that," said Accomack resident Elizabeth Walraven.
The video, shot earlier this month, has had more than 20,000 hits. The driver films himself chasing down the deputy he believed was speeding.
"I just got you on video blowing by me at 90 miles per hour," the driver said to the deputy. At one point the driver's speedometer hit 90 heading down Highway 13. "He was holding his cell being a commentator," said Accomack County resident BJ Bundick. "That is ridiculous. It was irresponsible on his side."
Accomack County Sheriff Larry Giddens says Deputy Jason Campbell was simply caught on tape making a mistake. He tells WAVY.com the young officer wasn't responding to a call and shouldn't have been speeding. The sheriff says Campbell has been disciplined. He wouldn't tell us Deputy Campbell's punishment.
"You're scared aren't you," the driver yelled at the deputy during the chase. The identity of the 20-year-old cameraman remains a mystery. The 8-minute video shows him honking and getting the deputy to pull over. He then confronts the officer and the deputy lets the driver go.
