Dennis Quaid

NOT Cited for DUI

After Traffic Stop

6/17/2012 6:49 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0617_dennis_quaid_tmz_duiDennis Quaid pulled off something most people in Hollywood can't these days -- he was NOT busted for DUI yesterday after getting a field sobriety test ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Quaid was pulled over in Marina del Rey for a stop sign violation when the officers decided to conduct a DUI investigation.

We're told cops determined DQ was not under the influence of anything and sent him on his way ... without so much as a ticket for the stop sign thing.

Seems like a small price to pay to get out of a moving violation.

He didn't even have to pull up his shirt.

And THAT is how it's done, Lindsey Lohan. No wreck, no alcohol, no jail. And DQ is a ---real--- movie star.

He's got something in common with his 'fans' because they don't get tickets to his movies anymore either.

Glad he wasn't driving impaired, but he deserved a ticket for the stop sign violation.

So lets re-cap:
1) Cops try to pull you over - Pull over.
2) Cop requests road-side sobriety test - Cooperate like a reasonable human being.
3) Cops cut you loose AND cut you a break on the run stop sign.

Why do police insist on doing these stupid tests? Every driver pulled over should be given a breathalyzer and then sent on their way.

I'm glad Dennis learned his lesson and wasn't impaired while driving. While he never should have driven under the influence like he did a few years ago, it appears he changed his ways and that's all you can ask of him. So glad it turned out he was sober. He's a good guy.

lame story

Not everyone who gets pulled over automatically gets a ticket. I've been pulled over a few tiimes myself, given a sobriety test once, and was let go.

another typical slow day in TMZ land

Haha he was sober...wonder why cops gave him breathalyzer test in the first place :D
Stop sign violations can be anything, sometimes just city bureaucrats wanting more money flow, use police dept to tighten up and bust us terrible criminals for things like..stopping 3 inches into a crosswalk lane :D
Good thing it's *legal* to *refuse* a roadside breathalyzer test in California with no legal repercussions...if over age 21.
Should be the same in every state, citizens have rights to drive down the road without being randomly forced to take breathalyzers tests any time some overly zealous cop decides to.
Of course, real drunk drivers should be arrested and lose their license for a period, when you're drunk you're car is a dangerous weapon.
