NEW YORK DAILY NEWS – KENNETH LOVETT
Fox News host and TV judge Jeanine Pirro is heading to court herself after being ticketed for excessive speeding Sunday in upstate New York.
State Police say Pirro was clocked driving 119 mph in a 65 mph zone when she was stopped by a trooper at about 1:15 p.m. Sunday afternoon in the Town of Nichols in Tioga County.
A State Police spokesman said the only charge Pirro was hit with was speeding.
He did not immediately know the type of vehicle she was in or whether there was passengers.
Her speeding ticket is returnable to Town of Nichols court either by mail or in person on Jan. 8.
“I had been driving for hours to visit my ailing 89-year-old mom and didn’t realize how fast I was driving. I believe in the rule of law and I will pay the consequences,” Pirro said in a statement through Fox News Channel.
