Gisele Bundchen stopped for speeding in Massachusetts, given verbal warning

BARNSTABLE, Mass. - Model Gisele Bundchen, the wife of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, was stopped for speeding over the weekend and given a verbal warning by a Massachusetts state trooper.

State police spokesman David Procopio says Bundchen was going about 112 kilometres an hour in a 90 kilometre-an-hour zone on state Route 6 in Barnstable when she was stopped Saturday.

Procopio says two children were in the Cadillac SUV, properly fastened in car seats.

The trooper reminded Bundchen the speed limit on Route 6 is 90 km-h and let her go on her way.

Procopio says Bundchen did not get any special treatment. The same trooper gave four other drivers verbal warnings that afternoon. He gave 20 others written citations, but those drivers committed other violations in addition to speeding.
