Busey was driving on Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu when cops pulled him over ... because they were told he was driving drunk.

Turns out ... cops got the tip from a couple who claimed they saw Busey driving his Mercedes erratically.

When cops went after Busey's car the couple followed and parked behind the cop car when Busey was stopped.

Cops determined Busey "was perfectly sober" and then noticed the couple -- Patrice Karst and Mark Abel -- were taking pictures of the action. 

According to deputies, the couple identified themselves as members of the press.  Cops asked them to stop taking photos, but they refused.

The L.A. County Sheriff's deputies arrested the couple for obstructing a peace officer in his duties. Patrice was also charged with possession of marijuana.

This story just made my day. Busy is the man especially because he wasn't driving drunk just erratic. Those people probably won't get what they deserve in return.

We all have ourselves to blame for this type of behaviour. If all of us (me included) weren't on these damn sites and watching the shows people peddling pics of stars couldn't make any money and wouldn't stoop to such lows to get coveted pics.

I am glad they got detained but those charges will get thrown out. It is not illegal to take pics of a cop working even if he is arresting someone, and the pot was found because of the arrest - so there was no reason for them to search her. I hope the DA can come up with some other charge that deals with what they actually did.
