Yeesh! Tough break!
No one is above the law, not even the boys of One Direction!
And unfortunately, member Louis Tomlinson learned that lesson the hard way when he was pulled over and cited for speeding this past weekend…while on his way to perform at the V Festival in Chelmsford!
Guess the "rushing to not disappoint his fans" excuse didn't fly, either, because although he was only going 48mph in a 40mph zone, the 20-year-old received three points on his license and an £80 fine…which would equal to around $130 in the states!
A source reveals:
"Louis told friends he's learnt his lesson and will be extra careful from now on. His girlfriend Eleanor Calder is at uni in Manchester and he drives up to see her so he doesn't want a ban."
Can't say we blame him!
What are you gonna do? The law is the law!
Best just to play it safe and try to be extra conscious of your driving from now on, boy!
