MILFORD - The Milford Police Department says it has suspended one of its officers after a dash camera recording showed him responding to calls at more than 100 mph.

Officer James Kiely will be suspended for five days without pay, according to the department. He has also been banned from driving police vehicles for nine months.

Police Chief Keith Mello says the recordings were all made in 2008.

The move comes after a lawsuit over a crash when a speeding officer returning from a call hit a car in Orange, killing two teens.

The officer involved in that case, Jason Anderson, was fired and charged with manslaughter.
