http://canyonchasers.net/blog/uploads/rossi-ticket.jpg Rumor has it, that while attending the MotoGP races at Laguna Seca, near Monterey, California. The worlds greatest motorcyclist in all known history got pulled over on a scooter by Californias finest! According to a post on SoCalSVRiders.Org Rossi was being driven in a car to the track and was stuck in traffic. Late for practice, a crew member rode out to the car to get Rossi on a scooter, giving Rossi his helmet thus leaving the crew member on the back of the scooter helmetless. As they arrived at the track, a police officer pulled them over and tried to give Rossi a ticket for having a passenger without a helmet, almost causing him to miss practice. Rumor has it that one of the GP muckity-mucks came out and took care of the situation, when the LEO realized, he had Rossi autograph a memorbilia t-shirt (instead of a citation) and let him go. The best part is that some unamed spectator with a camera was on hand to take a few photos! Personally, I would have loved to see Rossi evade the BMW mounted cop with his Zumi scooter! Check out the SoCalSVRiders.org post yourself for a few more photos of the situation.
