Matt Dillon Pinched for Hittin' Gas Too Hard

12/31/2008 2:37 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Matt Dillon's year is ending with a pop -- as in popped for going way, way over the speed limit in Vermont.

Law enforcement sources tell us Dillon was pulled over going over 100 MPH on Interstate 91 in rural VT, and had to be arrested because he was going so far over 65. We're told if he'd been doing 80-90, he could've gotten by with just a ticket. Instead, cops hauled him in for a little finger-printing and picture-taking session (see right).

Dillon was charged with excessive speeding and released with a citation.

Douche bag knew what he was doing. He figure no one patrols rural roads and hit the pedal to the metal. Too bad for him.

Why doesn't TMZ list the cars driven? This could be very funny. It's would be surprising to see the cheap rentals stars drive when not in the spotlight.

You're showing your ignorance driving that fast, Matt. You might not care whether you end up as a grease spot on the road, but other people do.

Kinda selfish don'tcha think?

You get arrested for speeding? Whatever happened to just getting a ticket and going to court?

What a shame. This guy is a huge COP fan. He has a lot of friends in the NYPD and has donated money to the Widows and Childrens Fund of Officers who were killed in the line of duty. Speeding...Its not the crime of the century. He is a very good guy.
