'Cosby Show' Star

Cited for Blocking

"Cosby Show" star Malcolm-Jamal Warner learned the hard way ... you can't block a highway down South whenever you please -- 'cause cops'll be all over your face faster than puddin' pops on a hot summer day.

McIntosh County Sheriff's department in Georgia tells TMZ, Malcolm and a group of people appeared to be shooting some kind of commercial in the middle of I-95 Friday ... causing a huge traffic jam.

According to law enforcement, deputies questioned Malcolm and discovered he had no permits to shoot, especially on the interstate ... so they handed out $95 tickets to each person involved.

Since they were out of state drivers, we're told Malcolm and his crew had to pay the tickets immediately at the station.

Not required, but clearly appreciated ... the photos (above) Malcolm took with deputies.

Calls to his camp weren't returned.

well maybe those tickets were cheaper than getting a permit and the hassle....pluse by filming gorilla style ther is always that chance they could pull it off without being caught and therfore save money. I am sure the $95 tickets are somehow fixd into their small budget...no big deal really.

Wait.... You can't just block one of the busiest interstate's on the east coast whenever you feel like it? That doesn't seem fair. That video is way more important then people's lives.
