Lakers Coach Warned

You're Too Damn Fast!

1/5/2012 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Mike BrownL.A. Lakers head coach Mike Brown had a run in with the California Highway Patrol yesterday ... after officers witnessed the guy BLAZING down an Orange County freeway in a brand new badass ride.

TMZ has learned ... Brown was pulled over on the 91 Freeway for pushing his new Audi near the 85 MPH mark ... in a 65 MPH zone.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... Brown was "very cool" with the officer ... and was let off with a stern warning.

Somewhere, Andrew Bynum is jealous ...

wow, if it was anybody else, guess what? We would be paying a visit to court to pay for a $500 speeding ticket. What gives these cops the right to let him off like that? He could've killed or injured other motorist. I don't care if he injured or killed himself.

Mike Brown flashed the officer his "Get out of jail free Mr. Potato Head" card.

Oh well    

Just not right, the "average" person would get a high priced ticket so the "fat cats" can just get a warning.

Haven't you people in cali had enough???

I thought 20 MPH over the speed limit is automatically wreckless driving. Obviously, the police were afraid he would say it was racial profiling.

85 in a 65 is nothing! I was given a warning for 87 in a 55. It's usually gonna depend on the area and time of day. If there was very little traffic, you will get away with a warning. 5 lanes of highway with no traffic, you are going to speed! Certain times of the day(night) the speed limits are too low, in my opinion, and cops know it!

Obviously none of you drives in Southern California. If you're not driving at least 80 on the freeway you better be a big rig or else you're going to get run off the road. Especially on the 91.

Going 85 in a 65 in Cali is just keeping up with traffic.
