Newly-sober actor BEN AFFLECK is in trouble with the law - he's been given a ticket for speeding. The PEARL HARBOR (2001) actor was fined after being spotted driving at 114 miles (192 kilometres) per hour. He was released after paying more than $1,000 (£769) at a local county jail in Macon, Georgia, America.
Treutlen County Sheriff WAYNE HOOKS told THE MACON TELEGRAPH that Affleck didn't look much like a film star when he was pulled over. The paper says, "They said you'd have never known. He had on an old mechanic's jacket with somebody else's name on it and a little round pair of glasses. " (NFA/WNWCAN/BRC)
