Close Call: Cop almost caught breaking the Law

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Caught on tape..what looks like a cop texting and driving.

If police catch you texting behind the wheel, you get a ticket. So how can they get away with it?

A 19 Action News viewer shot the video on I-90 so we asked the safety director about it.

"It's prohibited conduct unless there's an emergency. Absent an emergency situation. If we can identify who may have been doing it, there's some accountability. There was to be some," said Martin Flask, Cleveland Safety Director.

The dirver of the car may never be I.D'd because of the glare on the window.
