Katie Holmes -- Driver Escapes Ticket in Beverly Hills

Katie Holmes' driver was pulled over yesterday in Beverly Hills -- with Katie inside -- but the driver was able to escape with just a warning ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ the driver was spotted doing a major no-no ... driving while talking on his cell phone. But when cops pulled them over (the black Mercedes, pictured above), we're told the driver escaped without getting ticketed.

Maybe the cop was a big "Dawson's Creek" fan?
