"No wonder you people get shot."

That's what a 62-year-old driver told a Palm Beach County Sheriff's deputy after he handed her a ticket for going 51 in a 20 mph school zone, 31 mph over the limit.

The sheriff's office posted the encounter on Twitter as well as its YouTube channel.

The incident happened September 1 near Hagen Ranch Road and Boynton Beach Boulevard near Hagen Ranch Elementary.

Here's how the encounter played out as the deputy walked to the driver's car to hand over the citation.

Deputy: Ma'am, ma'am.

Driver: What

Deputy: You are being cited for speeding. This explains what your options are. Drive safe.

Driver: You know what? No wonder you people get shot. You're absolute "a**holes"

Deputy: OK, thank you ma'am. I appreciate that.

Driver: You're welcome. Have a nice day.

Deputy: Drive safe.

The deputy then calmly returned to his car.

Palm Beach County Sheriff Ric Bradshaw said the driver's behavior left him disappointed and angry.

"This is a deputy trying to make sure that children are safe and don't get killed in a school zone. He was doing his job. And I think it's totally unacceptable for somebody to talk to a deputy or any law enforcement officer like that, when that's what they are trying to do to protect our children,” Sheriff Bradshaw said.

According to the citation the ticket cost $606.
