Matt Dillon Guilty of Being a Speed Freak

3/30/2009 4:24 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Matt Dillon just pled guilty for having a heavier-than-lead foot -- meaning he has to pay the price for going 106 in a 65 last December.

Dillon, whose case was brought up today in Vermont, was ordered to pay an $828 fine. As part of the plea agreement, Dillon's negligent operation charge was dropped.

In addition to the fine, Matt will also be forced to read a pamphlet called "The Brake Is That Funny Looking Little Pedal on the Left ... for Dummies."

Well, it could be the pedal in the middle. Don't send him too far left, he'll mistake the brake for the clutch. Hopefully there is a chapter on that in the book. :-)

He got off way too easy. I live in Upstate New York right across the lake from Vermont and if I was caught doing that speed on their highways, I'd probably be in jail. Vermont has some of the toughest cops...they're fair but they're tough and going that much over the speed limit and jeopardizing people's lives on their highways just wouldn't be tolerated. Not if you're an average, run of the mill, every day Joe. I mean come on, an $828 fine for him is a penny fine for me and reading a pamphlet..providing he can read (he couldn't read the speed limit could he?) isn't any punishment at all. I hope he realizes how lucky he is to be a star and he does some paying forward. Maybe the town he was caught speeding in could use a new playground or rec center or something - put your money to good use.

Matt got off easily and cheaply because - why? He's a movie star and can put on the charm and con his way out of just about anything. If one of us pulled that dumb stunt what would happen?
