How Gerard Butler Dodged a Speeding Ticket

images The Olympus Has Fallen star Gerard Butler admits that he managed to avoid a speeding ticket by using an interesting excuse. He actually told the police officer that the reason behind his speeding was that he was saving the world!

Butler had an encounter with the L.A. police. He was caught driving fast at the time of filming a movie. He was very stressed out because of all the hard work on a movie. The actor said: ”I remember once, I was driving down the freeway at over a 100 miles-an-hour and I was just tense, gritting my teeth, and I passed a cop car. The officer put his cop lights on before I even got to him. I have been pulled over by a few cops, but they usually follow you for five minutes and make you sweat. But this guy realized, ‘I ain’t following him, he’s gone.’ I was pulled over, but I was let go after I explained I was saving the world.”

Butler explained that sometimes all the working on the movie can be overpowering and that day it resulted in his driving fast. But the 43-year-old actor experienced a similar situation back in 2009 in Scotland. That time he told the police he was late for an interview and they let him go without a ticket.images (1)
