Here are the top five stories in Miami today:

1. Miami Dade police officer, 26-year-old Donovan Williams Rojas, was off-duty when Monroe County deputies caught him speeding over 110 MPH off the Florida Keys on Sunday morning. Rojas was arrested for fleeing and driving under the influence. (WSVN)

2. Surging gas prices are causing a change in behavior for drivers. In the town of Davie, the line for Costco gas is so long, that it often backs up onto a busy State Road 84, leaving residents asking where the police are. Davie officials say they will not send officers out to clear the road or to write any tickets, so this may be a new reality. (WPLG Local 10)

3. Azealia Banks made a scene last weekend at her Wynwood Pride performance in Miami, tossing her microphone and storming off the stage after complaining about the event promoters’ alleged unprofessionalism. Banks posted in a Twitter thread, “Wynwood Pride was way too ghetto. I had to bounce,” and caused a stir online. (People)

4. The Salty Donut is opening its third South Florida location in Coconut Grove with a planned fall 2022 date. Exclusive new flavors for Coconut Grove include Caramel Apple and Double Chocolate Cookie. (Miami Herald)

5. A pair of warehouses converted to office spaces in Miami’s Wynwood Arts District has sold for $18.75 million, more than quadrupling in value. The buildings last traded for $4.6 million. (Subscription: South Florida Business Journal)
