Louis Tomlinson had a run-in with local police Wednesday when he stood up through a moving SUV's sunroof.
In a video that surfaced on YouTube, Louis is shown filming himself as a chauffeur takes him and Niall Horan through Manhattan. Holding the camera in front of him, Louis appears to be lip-syncing and intermittently singing a song, perhaps shooting footage for an upcoming music video or the guys' 3-D movie in the works.
But New York's Finest weren't having that kind of reckless behavior go unnoticed on their streets. One Direction's vehicle was stopped by two cops who had a word with the guys' driver.
One of the officers (perhaps a Directioner!) appeared to recognize Niall and Louis, even snapping a quick pic of the famous Brits.
All's well that ends well, but boys, you really do need to buckle up!
