As if the embarrassment from throwing a wildly off-target first pitch at the New York Mets game earlier this week wasn’t bad enough, the honor-turned-viral-moment also nearly got 50 Cent in trouble with the law.
“I actually got pulled over by New York City police,” he admitted on “Good Morning America” on Friday morning (May 30). “The pulled me over in my car. He pulled me over and I said, ‘I got my license,’ right, because I was a little nervous. As soon as he pulled me over, I was like, ‘What’d I do?’ And then, he said, ‘You know that pitch was terrible.’”
Luckily, Fif wasn’t actually in trouble with the law.
“He didn’t give me no ticket, no nothing,” he said. “He said, ’Just go ahead, go ahead. I don’t wanna mess up your day. I’m just saying, ’cause you made me laugh.'”
Not just you, Mr. Officer. Let’s all watch the pitch again. And again.
