Jeremy Piven -- Cop Drama In Los Angeles

6/3/2011 9:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jeremy Piven's star power FAILED to get him out of a ticket yesterday -- because a cop wrote him up in Los Angeles ... a cop who claimed to have no idea who the hell Jeremy Piven is.

The cop wouldn't tell us why he pulled over the "Entourage" star -- but Jeremy insists it was just a  registration issue and told us, "there's no problem actually."

After the cop wrote up the actor -- and handed him a citation -- we asked the cop if Piv was the biggest star he'd ever pulled over ...but the officer claimed he had no idea who Jeremy was!!!

Burn.

The sheet is on the back of the seat so he doesn't get Rogaine all over the upholstery.

Must be a REALLY slow news day! Piven may have a rep for being a huge Ahole, but is that any reason to diminish his success because a cop issued him a citation? Jeremy probably makes more money than 99% of TMZ readers.

Who is the judge of how big of a star Jeremy is? If it is the general public then he is a low to mid-level star at best. If it is Jeremy's own mind I'm sure he considers himself to be the biggest and most important star in Hollywood.

What's with the white sheet covering his seat? He should take a few pointers from his Jewish Grandma and get some clear plastic covers custom made, it's not like he doesn't have the money. oiy-vey !

First of all NO ONE can get pulled over solely because of a registration issue, so Priven is lying.

Second, IMO, it is scary that this cop doesn't know who Priven is. If this cop is so wrapped up in his own existence that he doesn't even know a pop culture icon from the city he works, then he has no business being a cop. This robocop needs to be wound up and sent to Iraq where you don't require a brain to fight the bad guys. . sheeeeeeeeeeeesssssssssss"
**********************************************************
If his license plate did not display the current registration decal (which was what probably caught the cop's attention), the cop could have impounded the vehicle and it would have cost Previn much more money than just a citation. This is a good cop. As for you Sienna Sacha, have you ever fallen out of a tree on your head?.. sheeeeeeeeeeeesssssssssss

Jeremy Piven a "pop culture icon"? I would have said a supporting performer on a subscription cable tv show that does 10 or 12 episodes a year and draws fewer than 2 million viewers.

Never mind that I don't know who Jeremy Piven is either; Rather, why would the cop (or many other people) care who Jeremy Piven is?
