Head of Arizona state troopers got warning for going 90 mph

PHOENIX (AP) -- The head of Arizona's public safety department has apologized after it was revealed he was pulled over for driving over 90 mph on a state highway nearly two months ago.

Col. Frank Milstead said on Twitter on Wednesday that the incident was regrettable and one “for which I will reflect and learn.”

A report by AZFamily.com found that Milstead was driving 90 mph and weaving through traffic without using his turn signals. He was let off with a warning after showing the Yavapai County Sheriff's Office deputy his department ID.

Milstead said police give out warnings in “at least a third” of all traffic stops."
