San Antonio Spurs guard Tony Parker was cited for impeding traffic and failing to produce a valid Texas driver's license during a traffic stop
Saturday Dec 24th was a bad day for San Antonio Spurs guard Tony Parker as he was fined by San Antonio police for impeding traffic and failing to show a U.S. driver's license. The Christmas Eve incident happened about 12:45 a.m. when a bicycle officer saw a car stopped and said it was impeding traffic.
Yet, the car didn't move that the police then rapped the hood with the palm of his hand. Parker who was driving at that time quickly questioned why the officer touched the car, before he and girlfriend Eva Longoria who happened to be inside that car "began screaming in a verbally abusive and demeaning manner," police said.
Parker then began to drive away, before at last being told to stop and get out. There he was showing a French driver's license. Moreover, it was said that Longoria shouted from the car: "He's just a Mexican bike cop. He only wants your autograph," while Parker complained: "This is all the cops do, just mess with people."
However, through her publicist, Longoria said on Monday that "the police report is highly inaccurate, defamatory, false and fraudulent." The publicist also said Longoria had never made any racial slurs, as she is Mexican herself.
