New York, Feb 28 (ANI): When American actress Jodie Foster was caught speeding by officers from the Beverly Hills Police Department, she did not accept the ticket they gave her quietly.
The incident was witnessed by a crew from truTV’s reality show “Speeders”, who ride with the highway patrols to film motorists getting caught speeding and then trying to talk their way out of a ticket.
Foster’s Prius was clocked as allegedly going 54 mph in a 35 mph zone, and when she was pulled over, she insisted she was not speeding.
“Foster refused to sign a waiver to appear on the show, so the camera crew ceased filming and returned to the police car,” the New York Post quoted a source as saying.
“But she grew quite agitated and angry, and kept insisting to the police officers that the radar gun must have made a mistake.
“She maintained to the officers that she was only going 30 mph at the time they pulled her over, and she kept interrupting and complaining that the process was taking too long,” the source said.
During Foster’s histrionics, the officer made a call to get his supervisor to the scene, “which just further annoyed her,” according to the source.
“Despite her numerous requests otherwise, the cops still issued her a citation,” the source added.
Beverly Hills Police spokesman Lt. Tony Lee added: “She was upset that she got pulled over, but she signed the ticket and went on her way.” (ANI)
