Florida deputy who pulled over driver given ultimate excuse: 'That’s the reason why I’m speeding'

A Florida police officer who pulled over a speeding driver earlier this week thought he was making a routine traffic stop.

Deputy Robert Pounds was in for a huge surprise when he stopped a man going 63 miles per hour in a 45 mph zone. It led to the officer doing something he'd never done in his 26-year career: deliver a baby.

The man Pounds pulled over was Wilfrid Jean-Louis, who was rushing his pregnant wife, Fabienne Gorges, to the hospital, according to Today. The mom-to-be was screaming in the passenger seat when Jean-Louis stopped his car.
