Kristin Cavallari had quite an interesting morning, to say the least.

The new mom and former reality star tweeted her frustrations and revealed that she had a run-in with law enforcement earlier.

"Who knew having a California drivers license in Illinois was a CRIME to be escorted to the police station to post bail?!!" she wrote.

K. Cav added, "What a morning."

But to further clarify, she later tweeted, "FYI…I still have an apartment in LA so I'm a resident of California."

A friend close to the blond beauty tells E! News exclusively that "she was driving in her car and was pulled over."

"They asked for her driver's license and when they saw she did not have an Illinois license they took her in."

The insider confirms that she was at the station "for 30 to 40 minutes and she paid $150 in bail."

And not that there's really ever a good time to be escorted into a police station, this morning's ordeal seemed to be particularly bad timing.

"She lives in three different states: She has homes in Nashville, Los Angeles and Chicago," the source added. "What is she meant to do?"

Meanwhile, a spokesperson for the Chicago Police Department did not have any further information regarding the incident. The Evanston Police Department did confirm that she was stopped for speeding at around 11:50 a.m., and that it is Illinois state law that you must post a bond if you don't have a valid driver's license from the state.

A rep for Cavallari tells E! News that "she is handling the situation."

Luckily, everyone is safe and sound and just a little ruffled after a rough start this morning!
