Oops! Police chief cited for speeding

Even the city's top cop can have a lead foot.

Spokane Police Chief Anne Kirkpatrick was ticked for speeding on Saturday as she hunted for a picnic spot along the Spokane River.

The chief was cited for driving 43 mph in a 30 mph zone in the 2900 block of Upriver Drive by Spokane County Sheriff's Deputy Jeff Thurman.
That's a $154 fine.

Kirkpatrick apologized for the mishap in an interview with KHQ news. Check that out here.

I posted the ticket, but policy prevents me from redacting personal information, so that didn't work out.
