Supermodel mom Gisele Bündchen was pulled over for speeding in Cape Cod this weekend but Tom Brady’s lady was able to avoid getting a ticket, reports the Boston Herald.
State trooper Michael Hopper was running a speed trap Saturday on Route 6 in Barnstable when he stopped a speeding Cadillac SUV, the paper says. Giselle was at the wheel with two babies in the back (presumably her son Benjamin and step-son Jack).
“He did give her a warning and let her go on her way,” said State Police spokesman David Procopio of the incident. “He reminded her that the speed limit on the Cape is 55, not 65 as it is in other parts of the state.”
The state trooper's son reportedly tweeted later about his dad’s run-in with the supermodel: “He let her go,” William J. Hopper supposedly divulged. “But in return she signed her autograph on the citation with kisses.”
Procopio assures the public that Ms. Bündchen didn’t get out of a ticket because of her star status.
“That trooper stopped 25 cars that day, five were given warnings including Gisele,” he said. “The other 20, who were doing more egregious things, were given tickets. She got no special treatment. If he stopped Mrs. Rex Ryan for the same thing, she also wouldn’t have gotten a citation.”
(Rex Ryan is the head coach of the Jets, for those of you who are not football fans.)
