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.

When I worked in Irvine I would see him rolling down the 405 solo in the car pool lane quite often. That ticket would be less than buss fare to you or I.

The Kardashians are always on their phones while driving through the streets and highways of CA. Why haven't they gotten tickets?

Does this mean if a caucasian cop gives him a ticket, it didn't happen and he was profiled for being african-american? @MarshawnLynch'slawyer

So, what's new? So many stupid *ss-hats in this state just driving and talking away without a worry in the world, until they're not paying attention, kill or hurt somebody and then whine about how "I can't BELIEVE this happened". Well, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to see why it's against the law, brainiac!
