Beyonce Ticketed For Texting While Driving
Where’s Oprah with one of her ratings-winning lectures when you need her?
Earlier this year, Jay-Z treated wife Beyonce to driving lessons to help her pass her road test, but looks like he may have forgotten to stress one important road rule: texting while driving is against the law.
Star Magazine snoops report that the pop singer was pulled over in Brooklyn June 23 after an NYPD official caught the beauty texting away as she weaved her way in and out of traffic.
In an effort to get out of the situation, the Texas native tried to use her celebrity status to charm her way out of the situation — to no avail.
“Beyoncé was really embarrassed because she only recently got her driver’s license. She tried to charm that cop and told him she had no idea that texting while driving was against the law. He had no idea who she was. He just slapped her with the ticket, which was worth more than $100!” a spywitness chuckles.
What a summer “Sasha Fierce” is having when it comes to automobiles
