LATEST: Arnold Schwarzenegger has escaped a police fine for illegally driving his motorbike without a license, because police didn't witness his antics.

The Governor's failings were exposed after a motorbike ride with his 12-year-old son Patrick ended with a collision on Sunday (08JAN06).

Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) spokesman OFFICER JASON LEE, says, "The LAPD does not issue a motorist a citation unless that person is observed by the officer, committing a traffic violation."

The 58-year-old TERMINATOR star says of his error, "I just never really got one. I never thought about it."
