Zac Efron -- Busted in Red Light Drama

4/8/2010 12:34 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Fifteen-year-old girls aren't allowed to be cops in Santa Monica -- which is why Zac Efron's tween-melting grin couldn't get him out of a ticket yesterday for blowing a red light.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ the officer who pulled Zac over yesterday afternoon did recognize the "High School Musical" star after Zac rolled down his window ... but still wrote him up.

Red light tickets in L.A. usually cost around $400 a pop -- fortunately, Zac's rich.

A cop who didn't get a hard on upon encountering a celebrity? Now that's got a be a first. Glad this girly/guy got his ticket accordingly. Meanwhile, $400 bucks for running a red light? Only in greater LA!

Maybe he should've offered the cop a blow job to get out of the ticket.

Idiot - how can it be a mistake - people do this on purpose, you are suppose to look while driving - duh, it is an accident waiting to happen. Yeah, right lucky he didn't kill someone, then nothing would happen to him. How could the cop want his autograph, did he know who was driving, obviously he went through on purpose, that is why he was stopped.

Why does everyone think he grins to get out of the ticket. I'd probably grin as well because I would feel busted.
