Most of us can’t get away with speeding tickets just for being who we are, but such are the perks of fame.To be fair, ESPN’s Doug Gottlieb never tried to draw attention to his identity during this encounter with a policeman, but he also never had to.

With March Madness on the way, Gottlieb is more recognisable now than at any other point of the year.  It also doesn’t hurt that he played basketball for Oklahoma State in college, so when he was pulled over yesterday in Oklahoma for speeding it’s not shocking that he was recognised.

The best part of all this is that Gottlieb was in the middle of a radio interview with 810 WHB and left his blue tooth in while the cops questioned him.  You can listen to the radio segment here.
