Cop

Forces Simon

to Idle

2/28/2009 6:55 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Simon Cowell saves his charm for when it counts -- he apparently talked his way out of a ticket!

simon gets stoped by cops: exclusive
This pic shows the "American Idol" judge in the clutches of a Beverly Hills cop this afternoon. The PD told us it was a "non-event traffic stop" and no citation was issued.

We're thinking the violation was for putting a 4th judge on the show. It really sucks.

UPDATE: TMZ has learned that Simon didn't have his license and wasn't wearing his seat belt while being stopped. He was not cited.

The REAL DEAL    

JUST LOVE SIMON . . . .he is the only REAL "judge" on the show. I bet the cop just wanted an autograph OR he was begging Simon to influence the producers of Idol to have KARA removed immediately. I am just wanting for her and Paula to go at it - you can so tell Paula can't stand her. I miss NORMAN GENTLE . . .

Hey Harvey, It's amazing all of the non-news worthy items you seem to need to post to your site. Apparently, if you get a picture, it's relevant. Uh, no. We really don't care.

Seriously. Why did they think we wanted to listen to more rambling by judges? They're sucking the life away from the talent.

So it was "a non event stop", was it? Then why was he stopped at all? Don't know why a cop would give a mega-wealthy celeb a break and your average John Doe would have been issued a cite. Simon earns in 10 minutes what this officer earns all year long. And while the officer has to put his life on the line every day, Simon just has to put up with Paula. I don't think the officer did himself any favors. When was the las time Simon donated any money to the much needed LAPD?
