Police chief gets caught speeding, writes himself a ticket 

People drive too fast for all sorts of reasons, but sharing them with law enforcement seldom results in evading consequences.

As such, a police chief in Sperry, Oklahoma who was caught on camera "going at least 20 miles an hour over the posted speed limit" didn't even try to talk himself out of the situation, notes KTUL.

Not only did he give himself a hefty $300 fine, but he also announced his wrongdoing via Facebook.

On Saturday, he wrote, "I am writing to inform everyone that I, Chief Burch, was breaking the law by speeding on 103rd St N. A citizen made a complaint about it and I acknowledge that I was wrong in traveling at 75 and 80 mph. I did have a reason for being in a hurry, but my speeds were not reasonable."

Burch continued, "I am holding myself accountable just as anyone else would have to be. I have written myself a citation and will be paying it just like every other citizen. I regret my actions and I sincerely apologize."
