Parker, Longoria Stopped by Police

Parker, Longoria Stopped by Police

Mon Dec 26, 8:40 AM ET

SAN ANTONIO - 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 in which "Desperate Housewives" actress Eva Longoria was his passenger, police said.

The incident happened about 12:45 a.m. Saturday. After seeing a car stopped, a bicycle officer said it was impeding traffic. When the car didn't move, the officer rapped the hood with the palm of his hand, according to a police report.

Parker, who was behind the wheel, questioned why the officer touched the car, and the couple "began screaming in a verbally abusive and demeaning manner," police said. Longoria called the police report "highly inaccurate."

Police say Parker then began to drive away, almost hitting a man standing nearby. After being told to stop and get out, Parker showed a French driver's license, police said.

The officer who wrote the citations said Parker complained: "This is all the cops do, just mess with people," and that Longoria shouted from the car: "He's just a Mexican bike cop. He only wants your autograph."

Longoria denied making the comment.

"It's a shame that one officer conducted himself in such an inappropriate and disorderly manner. I never made any sort of racial slurs, let alone made any comments about the officer being Mexican, as a Mexican myself," Longoria said through her publicist.

Is that legal to still be using a french driver's license after being in San Antonio for so long?

Just another reason to hate Tony Parker. I am surprised he didn't ask them "Do you know who I am?"

If the cop didn't want to be taunted a second time, he would have not touched Tony's car.

Parker was actually a likeable guy pre-Eva. I knew it wouldn't take long for Yoko to break up the Spurs though.
