Police in the Florida Keys were shocked when a maroon Mitsubishi roared up to 127 mph on the Overseas Highway over the weekend. Officers were even more shocked when they finally stopped the car on Stock Island and found three small children inside. The driver, Robert Rioseco, was drunk, police say. Miami New Times has the story.

Regular readers of True Crime will note that bloodied faces aren’t all that uncommon in Miami-Dade mugshots. Rarely, however, do we see other bodily fluids make cameos.
