TMZ ran into Ron outside Cut restaurant in Beverly Hills yesterday, where the funnyman finally addressed that dumb ass complaint filed by a plain-clothed officer in Bismarck who says he witnessed White breaking a city ordinance against smoking in a public place.

White seemed to be under the impression that he was off the hook -- but according to the Bismark City Attorney, Ron isn't out of the woods yet -- and will still probably have to pay that $100 fine -- chump change to a guy rollin' around the BH in a Bentley.
