Maksim Chmerkovskiy -- How I Beat the Rap ...

5/25/2010 7:11 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Maksim Chmerkovskiy admits he was driving like a speed demon when cops pulled him over in Hollywood last night -- but according to the "Dancing" star, that's not why he got in trouble. 


We just spotted Maksim out in L.A. -- just a few hours before the big "Dancing with the Stars" finale ... and dude told us the cop merely warned him about his lack of license plates on his brand new Mercedes.

Problem is -- the cop was driving in the other direction, and probably wouldn't have even noticed Maksim if he wouldn't have gunned it out of STK.

As for why the cop let Maksim off the hook, dude told us, "Apparently, he's a fan."

"I'm pregnant"

Maybe he gave the cop a blow job to let him off the hook.

LOVE Maks--he and Erin are adorable together. Hope they win! (Maks, tell your pal Tony to stay away from that bloodsucking leech Kate Gosselin.)

Hmmm...    

I love watching Maks and Erin together! In interviews, they have both said that the other makes them a better person. Here's hoping that they stay together and enjoy life and love even more.

Who cares about this has-been? He and Big Bird got voted off tonight. It's about time. Maybe next season they can get a male pro dancer who can REALLY choreograph and not this wannabe.

Maks is so cute. I think this is the first year i recall him being so relaxed on DWTS.
In his free dance with Erin,Maks said it was the story of him and Erin. Well, if that was so then they are a couple. A cute couple with excellent chemistry.



Maks puts on a good show being so inlove with himself, but i have heard that he is NOT THAT WAY AT ALL.



Erin & Maks can you let us know when the wedding date is..-)
