Reality TV star KIM KARDASHIAN stopped traffic on a busy Los Angeles freeway on Tuesday (12Nov13) after she was swarmed by members of the paparazzi as she was pulled over by police for speeding.
Kanye West's new fiancee was attempting to escape the photographers' pursuit by stepping on the gas peddle, but her efforts to race away were thwarted as officers from the California Highway Patrol spotted her and ordered her to pull over.
However, as cops cited the new mom for the offense, the snappers hopped out of their own cars, leaving them in the middle of the road, as they photographed the Keeping Up with the Kardashians beauty receiving a ticket.
The incident caused long lines of traffic to start building up on the freeway, prompting authorities to turn their attentions to the offending members of the paparazzi, although they were only able to fine one snapper for speeding before those involved managed to get away, reports TMZ.com.
The incident is currently under investigation, but it's not the first time photographers have caused chaos for Kardashian - she lashed out at those tailing her every move in June (13) after accusing them of putting her life and that of her then-unborn daughter at risk with their dangerous driving.
Taking to Twitter.com, she wrote, "Yesterday 4 cars boxed me in. One in front, behind, & one on each side just to have me drive at their speed so they can snap through the window. Its (sic) really so scary what they are legally allowed to get away with!"
And she isn't the only celebrity subjected to the intense paparazzi treatment - Justin Bieber suffered a similar speeding incident last year (12) as he tried to flee a pack of snappers on Los Angeles' 101 Freeway.
