VIDEO Purdue University President Mitch Daniels Pulled Over for Speeding


WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind.  — Even the president of Purdue University isn’t above the law, especially when it comes to following the speed limit.


A dashboard camera video shows Purdue President Mitch Daniels getting pulled over by Purdue University police last week.

Just before 8 a.m. on Oct. 20, an officer pulled Daniels over on McCormick Road for allegedly driving 42 miles per hour in a 20 mph zone.

In the video, Daniels can be heard apologizing to the officer and explaining his reason for breaking the law.

“I left my phone here,” said Daniels. “I got a call coming in at 8 o’clock. I know it. I’m sorry.”

Daniels was given a verbal warning and let go.

According to Purdue police, officers use their own discretion when writing speeding tickets. Traffic volume, pedestrian traffic, weather conditions and location of the offense are all factors taken into consideration.
