Kobe Bryant

LAW VIOLATOR

in $329K Ferrari

8/22/2012 7:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0822_kobe_bryant_ferrari_cell_phone_launchKobe Bryant can afford a $300k Ferrari ... but for some reason, the NBA star hasn't sprung for a hands-free device for his cell phone.

Bryant was cruising down the 405 Freeway yesterday ... steering through traffic while yakking away on his hand-held cell phone ... a major no-no in the state of California.

In fact, Kobe's lucky he wasn't spotted by the CHP -- 'cause a talking-while-driving ticket usually runs around $159 for the first offense ... and $279 for subsequent violations.

We're sure he can afford the ticket ... but you can't put a price on safety.

It's a known fact that celebrities are able to afford the most luxurious things but are way too cheap to buy the inexpensive stuff that can probably save their lives.

Something is wrong when he works his ass off to afford that car, mean while Kartrashian takes it in the ass and can afford to buy a similar car.

It's called 'Celebrity Entitlement', and it runs rampant here in California.

WHat I want to know is, how is he talking, driving, and shifting gears? oh that's right, Kobe is dumb and doesn't know how to drive a manual trans... this is the guy that paid an ungodly sum of money to Lamborghini to build his no talent MTV wife an auto trans (one of a kind because Lambo drivers know how to drive manual trans) because she was too stupid to learn to drive one as well.

A ticket is not going to teach Kobe anything but if he causes a major car accident with injuries to himself or other people he might get the message.

If he can afford a $300k Ferrari I doubt he isn't concerned about a $159 ticket, or a $279 one either

Many years ago now, at a hotel in Colorado,
Kobe learned the law doesn't apply to HIM.

Cherry red Ferrari that's what I'm talkin' about, kick ass car with style and color, plus the Italians designed and built it so you know it's superior workmanship.

I'd give him a ticket for driving that fugly car. Ferrari shmerrari, that thing is damn ugly.

Like his wife, only the car is a lot less expensive. Wonder if he's raped anyone lately?
