Foster Caught Up In Tv Cop Show

Hollywood actress JODIE FOSTER found herself caught up in a reality TV programme when she was recently stopped for a driving offence in Los Angeles.
The Oscar-winner was pulled over by cops last weekend (21-22Feb09), after the officers suspected her of driving her Toyota Prius at over 54 miles per hour (86 kilometres per hour) in a 35 miles per hour (56 kilometres per hour) zone.
The officers from the Beverly Hills Police Department were taking part in U.S. reality show Speeders, which follows the activities of highway patrol officers.
And when one of the cops approached Foster to issue the speeding ticket, the actress reportedly grew agitated when she saw the following camera crew and refused to allow the incident to appear on the TV show.
A source tells New York Post gossip column PageSix, "Foster refused to sign a waiver to appear on the show, so the camera crew ceased filming and returned to the police car. 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.
"Despite her numerous requests otherwise, the cops still issued her a citation."
Beverly Hills Police spokesman Lieutenant Tony Lee confirmed Foster was involved in the incident, adding, "She was upset that she got pulled over, but she signed the ticket and went on her way."
