Terrell Owens

Cited for Hijacking Carpool Lane

9/17/2011 3:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0915_to_beetle_TMZ_composite_ex_getty_vwNFL star Terrell Owens was pulled over and cited in L.A. this week -- for allegedly driving SOLO in the carpool lane -- but in the process ... the unemployed wide receiver also scored an additional two tickets.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, T.O. was pulled over on Monday -- driving a 2003 VW Beetle -- after police observed him violating the two-or-more-passengers rule in the carpool lane.

But according to law enforcement, once Owens was pulled over ... cops also cited him for an expired registration ... and having overly-tinted windows.

The carpool violation runs AT LEAST $381 -- but thankfully, the other two citations can be written off ... provided T.O. updates his registration and brings his windows up to code.

T.O. - the two people you DON'T mess with: 1. Those who can take your freedom. 2. Those who take your dinero. You happened to catch both at the same time. Welcome to LA. lol

Oh no, he drove solo in the carpool lane? HOW COULD HE DRIVE SOLO IN THE CAR POOL LANE?

Wait, wtf is a car pool lane? I've never even heard of that. If it's what I think it is, I would probably end up doing the same thing because I wouldn't even know how to recognize it.

LMAO @ people getting upset about this. Who gives a flying f... whether someone is riding solo or with other passengers in a given lane?

Humanity can not possibly get any dumber.
