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.

There is always two sides to the story. The right to stop and take pictures is permitted by law. When the full story is completely revealed I am sure the judicial system will expose the bandits.

Comment 77 proof read your comment....First off if you were arrested for taking a picture I am sure the look on your face would be similar, neither one of them have red eyes, nor are there eyes dilated. Welcome to the media junky club dip____.
