Cops to Adam Levine: This is Your 2nd Warning

1/11/2010 5:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Adam Levine was in the middle of another situation with the LAPD last night -- and it was all over the same Aston Martin that got him in trouble last time.

Adam Levine: Click to watch
The Maroon 5 singer was sitting in his ridiculously awesome ride, when cops pulled over the car for not having plates -- the same thing he was pulled over for back in '08 ... in the exact same car.

For the second time, Levine was let off with just a warning ... and was free to enjoy his beloved Pinkberry dessert.

He doesn't have a front plate because those cars (and maseratis) come only with plate holders on the rear. If you want to put license plates on the front--as some states require--you have to drill holes in the car's bumper. True car lovers choose not to do that and risk getting fined. And frankly, if you can afford the car you can afford the fine....it's not that big a deal--there's a rear plate.

This is the second traffic violation for Mr. Levine in just under 2 years. What's this guy gonna have to do before he's held accountable for his behaviour/actions...Hurt or Kill someone? Geez!

He had no plates but was allowed to keep going????? How is this possible???? Only in Hollywood ... you and me would get a big fat ticket and our car towed.

Who purposefully takes their license plates off and why would they do it? For privacy?

Am I wrong in asking this?

What a dumb-ass reason to pull him over. LAPD need to worry about bigger and better things. How about celebs driving drunk, or celebs running over people. Not to mention, he is very good looking and can do no wrong in my book.

What makes you assume there ever was plates on the vehicle?

----------
Isn't it unlawful to sell a vehicle without license plates? Are there situations where driving with no license plates is the norm? I don't know. Fill me in.

Those plates have never left the glove box man. Celebs pull this no plate biz all the time if you haven't been paying attention. My friend ain't a celeb and although his rides are all registered only the dealer vanity plate is stuck on the back. His official line, "Sorry officer. Just bought the vehicle and will get the plates on asap." Most of the time celebs' vehicles are valeted so it ain't a big deal.

Think about it this way: The odds of getting the ticket in the first place, or having someone call 911 to rat you out on the freeway, or being pulled over by the same cop in the same ride is next to none.

The reality is that the celeb gift-of-the-gab and million dollar smile will usually net you better odds than abiding to the law. All the multinova/red light camera tickets you could possibly get away with trumps the renegade cop willing to write the ticket. And even then that ticket is about as expensive a dent as that Pinkberry. Only in Hollywood.
