How Ellen Gets Out of Speeding Tickets

Ellen DeGeneres stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live, where she shared a couple of stories about getting out of speeding tickets just because she's a good person. DeGeneres told a story about a cop pulling her over for driving 35 mph in a 30 mph zone. Upon realizing who she was, the officer said "You do a lot of good for the world." And then he let her go without a ticket. Another instance occurred last year, shortly after the after the Thomas fire and subsequent mudslides that affected the Montecito, California community. DeGeneres has a home there and publicly praised the first-responders and firefighters for the tireless efforts they put into saving the town. DeGeneres had some of the firefighters on her show, Ellen. She also made multiple donations to local firehouses. DeGeneres has long been a supporter of emergency services, in fact she just recently donated $100,000 to the Los Angeles Fire Department Foundation. All of Degeneres's kind deeds and donations have not gone unnoticed. She said she pulled over in the Montecito area and the officer was so excited to meet her that he didn't issue a ticket. Instead, the two took a selfie and Degeneres went on her way. Jimmy Kimmel Live! airs weeknights at 11:35 on ABC. Watch clips and full episodes of Jimmy Kimmel Live! for free on Yahoo View.
