Simon Cowell

Plays Dumb

Really Well

3/2/2009 1:45 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Apparently, they don't have seat belts in England. Or at least that was Simon Cowell's excuse when a Beverly Hills cop pulled him over for not buckling up this weekend.

Simon Cowell: Click to watch
Fortunately for Cowell, the cop was a fan who fell for his old British charm and let him go without a ticket -- but not before stopping traffic to strike up a conversation about the other "American Idol" judges he's pulled over in the past. We're not kidding.

It seems like Simon even attempts to warn him about discussing such things on camera, but hey, it's Beverly Hills ... and nobody got hurt.

Nice to see that cop was more concerned with getting to meet a celebrity than actually doing what he is paid to do. Notice how TMZ's camera car was blocking traffic for about a minute and he didn't say anything to them. Stupid f@*king worthless police.

He did the best invert airs, and skated with professionals Tony Hawk
and David Z. He's a motorcycle cop for Beverly Hills.
We might have two very talented people in this photo, from the opposite
ends of the "talent spectrum" I don't think Simon can drop in on a
vert ramp though and is two much of a wuss. If that is Kurt then he cancels out
Simons "celebrity Status" for being an awesome skateboarding cop!

Let's see: a famous, rich British person in a foreign country being followed by paparazzi while not wearing a seatbelt in an expensive black car...Does that sound familiar?

I agree w/#7 comments. Glad to know it was a slow crime day around Bev Hills. This officer should be ashamed of himself to grandstand at the expense of his own badge. What a moron and glad to know he doesn't see to care too much if one is wearing their seatbelt or not. Guess the Cowl must of asked his officerness "is that really your nightstick or are you just glad you stopped me"?
