Roy Halladay snaps selfie while getting a speeding ticket (photo)
Former MLB pitching great Roy Halladay clearly took the news that he was about to get a speeding ticket in stride, as evidenced by the selfie he snapped of himself grinning after he was pulled over by a police officer while out and about on Thursday.
Halladay did lament in his tweet, though, that the speeding ticket for going 58 mph in a 45-mph zone marred his otherwise “perfect driving record.” He also posted evidence of the ticket in question.

Halladay is no stranger to social media chicanery, as he once snapped a photo of himself with an oblivious Phillies fan wearing a jersey shirt bearing his name.
Oopps you missed me! Walked right by me! Hope he gets to see his pic with me on Twitter, he doesn't know we took this pic.twitter.com/CHgFlVfafm

Good stuff. Halladay felt much better about the former social media pic he snapped on the sly as opposed to the latter. Obviously.
