LA Police Cite Rihanna's Driver: No Front Plate

Posted: Updated:
Los Angeles police put the brakes on a speedy getaway by Rihanna from a trendy Hollywood nightclub.

Los Angeles police say they stopped Rihanna's sport utility vehicle early Thursday on Hollywood Boulevard after noticing it didn't have a front license plate. A department spokeswoman confirmed Rihanna was inside, but did not have details on the citation issued to her driver.

Video shot by celebrity Web site TMZ showed an officer giving the driver a ticket.

The site also posted video of "Umbrella" singer coming in and out of the trendy Les Deux nightclub. The SUV is seen speeding away from the club, and later at the traffic stop. Paparazzi had assembled around the vehicle both times.

The videos also show Rihanna wasn't sporting sunglasses, which she had been shown wearing in several photographs taken in Los Angeles and New York since boyfriend Chris Brown allegedly beat her in February. Police investigated the case and interviewed the 21-year-old singer, whose real name is Robyn Rihanna Fenty.

Brown is scheduled for April 6 arraignment on felony assault and criminal threat charges.
