From Reuters: "Witnesses reported seeing two State Police cars escorting dozens of Ferraris, Lamborghinis and Porsches at speeds exceeding 100 miles per hour on March 30, and weaving across the highway's three lanes, according to a report published on Sunday by the Star-Ledger newspaper.
"We will not tolerate any conduct by a member of the State Police that puts the public in jeopardy, as this unauthorized caravan had the potential to do," New Jersey Attorney General Jeffrey Chiesa said in a statement. "We are thoroughly investigating this incident, and those responsible will face serious discipline.""
