Missouri Governor Pulled Over While Speeding, Not Ticketed

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens was pulled over last week while speeding but wasn’t ticketed.

Greitens spokesman Parker Briden said in a statement Tuesday that police stopped Greitens on Friday in Truesdale, near the governor’s home in the resort community of Innsbrook.

Briden says Greitens was driving 41 mph on a road with a speed limit of 55 mph that dropped to a 30 mph limit. Briden says it was a “friendly interaction” and the officer didn’t ticket the governor.

Briden says Greitens was on an errand to pick up medicine at a pharmacy near his house.
