Singer Michelle Williams received a strict warning from Los Angeles police on Thursday (31Mar11) after she was caught using her cell phone while driving.
The former Destiny's Child star was on her way to TV news station Ktla for an interview when she was spotted chatting on her phone by cops who pulled her over.
Williams made light of the situation in a series of posts on Twitter.com, writing, "Omg (oh my god)!!! Pulled over by the LA Sheriff's (sic)!!! Ooops!!! Well my mug shot should be cute, IF it comes to that!!! Lol (laugh out loud)!!!!"
Williams managed to escape any legal action after the officers recognised her and let her off with a scolding, but she has taken the safety warning seriously and urged her fans to take note.
She later tweeted, "No talking on ur phone while driving!!! That is a No No!!!!"
