Jodie Foster fought the law, and the law won. New York Post’s Page Six:
JODIE Foster has given us many amazing performances over the years – but one you won’t be seeing is her emotionally charged confrontation with officers from the Beverly Hills Police Department after they nailed her for speeding.
A crew from truTV’s reality show “Speeders” — which rides with highway patrols to film motorists getting caught speeding and then trying to talk their way out of a ticket — was with the Beverly Hills cops last weekend when they clocked a Prius allegedly going 54 mph in a 35 mph zone.
When an officer and the camera crew approached the car, they found Foster – winner of Best Actress Oscars for “The Silence of the Lambs” and “The Accused” — sitting behind the wheel.
Our source relates that, “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.”
During Foster’s histrionics, the officer made a call to get his supervisor to the scene, “which just further annoyed her,” according to our spy. “Despite her numerous requests otherwise, the cops still issued her a citation.”
