Seems like Clarkson just can’t keep himself out of the spotlight. The Top Gear star was recently photographed chatting on his cell phone while doing 70mph on the highway in his, what the DailyMail so uselessly points out, ‘gas-guzzling 6.3 liter Mercedes.’
Clarkson is now facing investigation and could get three points on his license along with a £60 fine if convicted. Police are analyzing the photograph that was snapped with cell phone by a passerby (that we hope was in the driver seat of another vehicle because then that’s just wrong) to decide whether Clarkson should be charged.
A police insider said that there are no exceptions made for celebrities.
He said: “At a time when the Government and police are clamping down on motorists putting safety at risk by using mobiles at the wheel, it’s vital that police are seen to be taking action against all alleged offenders, no matter who they are.”
