Kim Kardashian and a paparazzo were cited for speeding on Tuesday. The photographer, Juliano Goncalves, was also cited for stopping in a nonemergency situation, The Associated Press reports.
Kardashian was pulled over for driving too fast on U.S. 101 in Los Angeles, apparently because she was being chased by paparazzi. Three other cars, likely all driven by paparazzi, then also stopped to snap pictures.
But since Kardashian was allegedly being chased, can she potentially fight her ticket?
It's not clear how fast Kardashian was going on U.S. 101, but regardless, there are some possible ways she may be able to fight the speeding citation. For example, she could:
Worth the Fight?
As in other states, speeding in California can add up because of all the additional penalty assessment fees and various surcharges. So while the ticket itself may be about $100, with court fees in LA, it could add up to more than $300.
While that may be a lot of money for us non-celebrities, that amount is likely not much for Kardashian. It may just be easier for the reality starlet to pay off the fine and be done with it -- though there can be other consequences to speeding such as added "points" on your driving record, depending on how fast you were going.
Besides, her fiancé Kanye West is dealing with arguably more pressing legal issues that she may want to devote her time to.
