After driving around the country with a spotless driving record, Carrie Underwood got pulled over for speeding recently and shared how ashamed she was of herself on Twitter, saying, “Well, it happened today. After 18 years, I can no longer say I’ve never been pulled over for speeding. I feel so ashamed! I may or may not have cried in my car after the cop let me go. #RuleFollower #GrannyDriver #ImSorry.” (Personally, I find it hilarious to picture Carrie driving around super slow and people constantly passing her and then realizing who it is.)
Not missing a chance to poke fun at his wife, Mike Fisher tweeted back at her saying, “Proud of you honey,” which obviously means he’s endured more than one slow drive with his #GrannyDriver wife.
Police in Brentwood, Tennessee recently released the dash cam footage of Carrie’s run-in with the law and it seems it went exactly as she said on Twitter.
When the officer asked, “What’s the big hurry, ma’am?” Carrie replied, “I wasn’t even paying attention. I know that’s no excuse.” And you can hear the remorse in her voice. And she wasn’t trying to pull the celebrity card either.
We kind of love Carrie even more now after this.
We don’t have a ton of footage of Carrie behind the wheel, but she did drive very, very slow through the “Two Black Cadillacs” video. Very slow.
