Pesci -- I Have Friends in High Places!

2/5/2009 3:20 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Joe PesciJoe Pesci has pull -- so he says, after telling L.A. County Sheriff's deputies he was calling their boss on them after getting a ticket.

It happened Tuesday at 9:30 PM in West Hollywood. Pesci stopped his car in a red zone and, with the motor running, allegedly flicked a cigarette out the window. Deputies cited Mr. Yutes for impeding traffic and throwing a cig out of a car.

Joe was none too pleased and law enforcement sources tell us he got on his phone, and then told officers he had just called Sheriff Lee Baca himself and that Baca would take care of it for him. We're guessin' he was bluffing.

P.S. -- He got the ticket.

Pesci may have friends in high places--they just don't see eye-to-eye!

Just another case of LAPD officers THEMSELVES calling the paparazzi.

There should be a prompt investigation and this officer should be fired.

I guess the cop didn't see "Goodfellas". He better sleep with one eye open.

Just another example of the celebrity "don't you know who I am?" syndrome. So sick of it. He is no longer a "Good Fella". Hey Joe, been in any good movies lately?
