Kristin Cavallari Ticketed For Speeding in Evanston

The wife of Bears quarterback Jay Cutler was ticketed for driving without a valid Illinois license in Evanston Friday morning.

Kristin Cavallari, wife of Bears quarterback Jay Cutler, was ticketed for speeding in Evanston Friday morning, according to police.

Police stopped Cavallari as she was headed northbound on Sheridan Road near Calvary Cemetery, according to Evanston Police Cmdr. Jason Parrott. She was issued a ticket for excessive speed, although Parrott said police are not releasing how fast she was going.

The posted speed limit on that section of Sheridan Road is 30 miles per hour.

It was a normal traffic stop in most respects, according to Parrott, but things got complicated because Cavallari has a California license, not an Illinois driver's license. That detail required her to go to the station and post bond, according to Parrott.

"Who knew having a California drivers license in Illinois was a CRIME to be escorted to the police station to post bail?!! What a morning" she tweeted from @KristinCav Friday morning.

Cavallari and Cutler live in a five-bedroom, 9-bathroom Winnetka home that rents for $10,000.

"
FYI...I still have an apartment in LA so I'm a resident of California," Cavallari tweeted later.

Please. It was a traffic stop for speeding. In Illinois you have to post a BOND, not BAIL. If you do not have an Illinois license to post as a BOND, you have to post a cash BOND, not BAIL at the station so that the officer cannot be accused of taking a bribe. Not a CRIME. Either get an Illinois license or don't speed. No problem.

Thanks Herc- I'm glad somebody saw my post before the Stasi censors at the Patch take it down- our fearless "Defenders of Free Speech".

For having a California license!!!! If an illegal can not produce a license in cook county they get the same deal. Illegals can't be held for deportation in cook county. Just saying! Thanks Tom Dart

Who cares people get speeding tickets everyday. Why make such a deal out if this because she is married to an NFL player?? At least she was escorted and not hand cuffed life they do everybody else.

Cutler should go play on a California team and we should sign a real QB.

She obviously doesn't like living in Chicago. She will whine until Jay agrees to let her live in Calf with the child.

You've been in Illinois how long but haven't bothered to get an Illinois license? Can't afford the $30? Oh wait, you're a celebrity married to an NFL quaterback so the rules don't apply to you. Go back to California. And take Jay with you. Please!
