DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - The Iowa State Patrol says it didn’t reduce the speed on a citation given to a high-ranking officer.

Capt. Ken Clary was cited for driving 92 in a 70-mph zone this month, following an investigation into a November off-duty incident in which he was pulled over and quickly let go by a trooper.

Video doesn’t show the speed clocked on radar and no police report was filed. A patrol spokesman had said he didn’t know whether Clary’s speed was reduced on the citation, which can be done at an officer’s discretion. That’s significant because the penalty for driving 25 over the limit is a license suspension.

Responding to earlier inquiries, Patrol Maj. Todd Misel said Tuesday the radar clocked Clary at 92 and the $208 ticket he signed wasn’t reduced.
