"He says, 'Driver's licence and registration,' ... and I gave him my licence and he looks at it and he goes, 'Aw, seriously,'" he added, as the crowd laughed. When questioned later by a reporter, Paulson initially said it was just a story he made up. When pressed, Paulson said the story was true but he didn't want to say whether he had received a ticket. "I don't want to talk about that. I do not want to talk about that," he said. A short while later Paulson was again asked about the speeding story. He confirmed he had not been given a ticket but said he hadn't received preferential treatment. "I was warned," Paulson said.
