Nick Turturro: LAPD Blues

1/8/2009 12:50 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Former "NYPD Blue" star Nick Turturro can't even get arrested in this town.



The 46-year-old was pulled over and cuffed/patted down by members of the West Hollywood Sheriff's department on Wednesday, but was later released with a smile and a handshake.

The incident appears to be a case of mistaken identity. "Don't you know who I was?!"

Ohhh that's nice. They pat him down and cuff him and then say "oh it was a case of mistaken identity." What would have happened if they found drugs or something? I guess he is guilty until proven innocent.....

Re #7

If they had found drugs, and the seizure was determined to be illegal, then the evidence of the drugs would be suppressed at trial. But I should point out that all is not well in such a scenario. The guy would still get booked, arraigned, go through a trial, etc.

Perhaps former "NYPD Blue" star Nick Turturro can't even get arrested in this town., but TMZ never manages to post the COMPLETE story, like why he was stopped in the first place and if the huge dent in the front of his car is relative. Sheesh.

does it matter    

LAPD BLUES? This is the sheriffs dept. Even if he did work the NYPD Blues show they are making it sound like LAPD was the one detaining him. TMZ should try not to use the wrong department just to make headlines rhyme.

Detective Greg Medavoy got him off the hook. All it took was one phone call.

Disgusting    

Typical LA - when they realized he was on tv, they bowed and kissed his ring

The LA Sheriff's dept. is a mess.

Also they pull over women they want to meet
