TMZ Catches Calif. First Lady Parked Illegally

The website TMZ is known for catching celebrities in compromising situations. Parking in a space reserved for emergency vehicles would rank pretty low unless you're the first lady of California. TMZ posted video of Maria Shriver's Cadillac Escalade illegally parked. Two weeks ago TMZ showed the first lady violating California's handsfree cell phone law. She's apologized both times.

Good morning, I'm Renee Montagne. The Web site TMZ is known for catching celebrities in compromising situations. But parking in a red zone would rank pretty low unless you're the first lady of California. TMZ posted video of Maria Shriver's Cadillac Escalade illegally parked for, it said, nearly an hour. This comes two weeks after TMZ showed the first lady violating California's hands-free cell phone law. She's apologized.
