Claudia Castillo posted video of herself pulling over a cop for speeding a week ago on YouTube. The video shortly thereafter racked up over a million views. In response to the controversial video, which has more down-votes than up-votes and people commenting on both sides, the Miami Fraternal Order of Police union president chose to respond by attacking her for her own poor driving history and by posting Castillo's personal information online, including her phone number which he said people should "feel free to call."

From CBS Miami:
The Miami Fraternal Order of Police union president has taken to social media to call out the driver who pulled over a cop because he was apparently speeding.

[...]On Monday, Castillo walked into the Miami-Dade Police internal affairs division in Miami Gardens afternoon to file a complaint. Her complaint turned into a formal internal affairs investigation of Fonticiella.

But now those thousands of views may have just turned into as many phone calls.

Thatís because Miami FOP Union President Javier Ortiz posted Castilloís phone number on his social media accounts.

Ortiz also posted several photos of Castillo, including a few of her driving a boat with a beer in hand.

One of the pictures was captioned: "Nobody is above the law Except me when I'm driving."

Castillo now says she is being harassed non-stop by phone and email.

While her actions may have been controversial, spreading her personal information online and pushing people to harass her is not an appropriate response.
