Duran Duran Bassist

BONEHEAD

Move in Front of Cop

102512_john_taylor_launch
Duran Duran rocker John Taylor must have a pair of BRASS COJONES ... 'cause after the guy was pulled over in L.A. yesterday, he BROKE THE LAW AGAIN right in front of the cop ... and it was all caught on tape.

TMZ cameras rolled as Taylor was getting written up for a routine traffic violation (we're told an illegal left turn) ... total bummer.

But after he got the citation, Taylor PEELED OUT ... blowing right through a stop sign ... just 20 YARDS from the cops!!

But the shocker -- he totally got away with it ... 'cause the cops were still getting in their cruiser when Taylor was speeding away.

You rebel.

OooooNooo!    

If he was a real rock star instead of a has-been, he would have a driver and a limo.

***mon TMZ...don't start with false headlines like someof the other crap news companies. There was no 'peeling' out and he stopped at the stop sign..sure he rolled through it a bit but PUHLEEEZE!

***mon TMZ! Don't bring yourself down to the level of some of the other crap news sites with false headlines. There was no 'peeling' out...no squeeling of tires...and he stopped at the stop sign. Sure he rolled through a bit...but PUHLEEZE!!! This was such a non-news item. Must be a slow day.

I was there. He peeled out three times, actually. Know why? Because he's bad ass, that's why. Dude is BAD ASS.

If you're looking for something a little more interesting to read, pick up John's new book, "In The Pleasure Groove: Love, Death, & Duran Duran". He was on a way to a signing when he was pulled over...and he hit #6 on the NYT best-seller list last night! :) I guarantee it'll be more interesting than this site! LOL! Also, to whoever made the comment about having a limo and a driver...did it ever occur to you that just because some "entertainers" roll like that doesn't necessarily mean they have talent? John doesn't need to prove his talent or his "popularity" to anyone anymore. He's past that phase in his life. It's called being a grown-up, moron.

TMZ... BUSTED... making a story out of nothing, no peel out and a California stop. completely legit in thirty mile zone. I saw the tape to prove it.
Headline... "Duran Duran Bassist not cited for peeling out and blowing a stop light."

I hope the LA D.A. sees TMZ's video and charge this person who thinks he is above the law. I'm still hurting from a not stopping at a red light ticket from last year. I'm not wealthy and it took a big chunk of my weekly paycheck. (red light camera, I stopped 6 inches past the line, no dice! It should have been a stop before it) And peeling off literally in front of the cops? that just shows arrogance. Get this b-tard! *it won't be any skin off his nose*
