Star Trek - Actor Levar Burton Rear-ended By Cop Car

Star Trek: The Next Generation star Levar Burton was rear-ended by a cop car on Monday (28May12) as officers pulled him over for a moving violation.
The actor and former Reading Rainbow host was driving in Van Nuys, California when he allegedly failed to yield to a pedestrian in a cross walk, prompting police to signal their sirens.
However, because Burton stopped so suddenly, the driver of the police vehicle was unable to brake in time, causing a minor collision, according to Tmz.com.
Mortified by the incident, law enforcement officials decided to write up the star's ticket and Burton walked away with minimal vehicular damage.
