Ryan Lochte hauling ass in his car = INSTANT SPEEDING TICKET.

The swimming champ was pulled over by cops in Gainesville, FL recently -- near where his parents live -- after officers say he was going 49 in a 40.

According to court records, Lochte was issued a $119 ticket ... which he can probably afford. If not, he can always sell his diamond-encrusted grill.

Moral of the story ... Florida cops are strict.

Was the tool sporting the grill when it was pulled over?
If I was the cop in question, I would booked the idiot for being a total wanker as well.

As a Florida officer I want to clarify this. The tickets here are so expensive that we often resort to writing for the least amount of speed possible...which is 9 MPH over. Doing this allows the driver to be cited but doesn't impact their wallet for several hundred dollars.

I go 80 in a 70 (like everyone else on 23) on a daily basis. Does that mean I'm more of a bad@ss, or what? Can I trade mark a word i didn't make up???

He lost the diamond-studded grill awhile back. He said in an interview that he believes it was stolen.
