12:18 PM PT --
TMZ spoke with a rep for the Evanston Police Department ... who tells us Kristin was initially stopped for speeding early this morning.

During the stop, the officer learned Kristin has been living in the state and driving without a valid IL license, which is against the law in IL.

Cops say Kristin was required to travel to the police station, in her own car, and was ultimately hit with a citation for $120 ... despite the fact that EVERYONE ON THE PLANET knows she splits her time between L.A. and Chicago because she's married to Bears QB Jay Cutler.

Cops say if Kristin wishes to continue driving in the state, she must get a valid IL driver's license.

Kristin Cavallari
says she was taken into police custody in Illinois this morning -- and forced to post bail -- and claims it all has to do with her driver's license.

KC went to Twitter moments ago and said, "Who knew having a California driver's license in Illinois was a CRIME to be escorted to the police station to post bail?!! What a morning."

The former MTV star -- who's married to Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler -- is insinuating that she had the same problem Justin Bieber had in L.A. ... when he was cited for not having a valid driver's license.

In Illinois, you are required to have an IL driver's license once you have lived in the state for 90 days ... or you can be cited.

However, KC says she's not a full-time IL resident and therefore shouldn't be subjected to that law. She also tweeted about it saying, "I still have an apartment in LA so I'm a resident of California."

Story developing ...

I believe this is the law in most states. After 90 days your car has to be registered in that state and your license has to be from that state. How long was she in IL? I'm sure there are in and outs to this. You would THINK that with ALL the VIOLENCE in IL, they would have more important things to do, but I guess this is easier for them!

Receiving a citation and being ARRESTED and having to POST BAIL are entirely different things. This doesn't seem right.

Chicago has the worst crime rate in the entire country!! It's great to know the cops have plenty of time to worry about K's (ANYONES) license rather than trying to get rid of all the crack/coke/heroin dealers and solve the 300 (as of today) homicides in the city this year!!?? What a freaking joke!

She's a well-known cocaine abuser. Probably related to that....

I'm sure being married to the worst QB in Chicago history didn't help her cause.

I call BS on her story. I bet it was her bitchy attitude that got her taken to the police station. She likely gave the cops attitude and did the whole "do you know who I am" thing. Bieber also got caught for not being legally allowed to drive (in a different state) but didnt get arrested, so evidently he didnt give the cops attitude like this bitch did.

So she has to get an IL license to drive in IL and a CA license to drive in CA, but it's illegal to have two drivers licenses from different states at the same time. Talk about a lose, lose situation.

Now this is a waste of the police's time. How stupid, I thought you get a traffic court ticket and are given time to fix it. It is not like she did not have a valid license in another state. Bringing her to the police station was dumb.
