(Newser) – He said nothing during his court appearance in Nantucket on Monday, but Kevin Spacey likely had some explaining to do for law enforcement later that day. A Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority rep tells People that, just hours after he was arraigned in Massachusetts on sexual assault charges, the 59-year-old actor was pulled over for speeding outside Washington, DC, after leaving Reagan National Airport. TMZ has video of the two cops who stopped Spacey, who was driving a black Ford SUV with his attorney Alan Jackson in the passenger seat.

In the clip, the cops reprimand the TMZ videographer for pulling over along with them, saying he shouldn't be on the side of the road. "Did you get an autograph? No selfies?" the photog asks the cops after Spacey drives away. Whether or not the officers knew who they pulled over, he was let off without a ticket. "Kevin Spacey was given a verbal warning not to speed," the MWAA rep tells People. (Spacey recently released a rather odd video).
