Actor PATRICK DEMPSEY discovered fame has its benefits after escaping a speeding ticket in Hollywood when a traffic cop recognized him as the star of GREY’S ANATOMY.
The hunky star was racing to get to an interview on time when a cop pulled him over.
But he discovered that driving a Porsche GT3RS and starring in a top TV show can get you out of a lot of trouble.
He recalls, “The cop was really cool. He said, ‘At least you’re driving the Porsche properly’.
“He said ‘Oh, I know you!’ and I got out of it.”
