(LOS ANGELES) -- Ben Affleck was given a speeding ticket in Los Angeles Wednesday while driving with wife Jennifer Garner, but a source tells UsMagazine.com he had a decent excuse.
"Ben and Jen were being followed by a pack of 12 paparazzi," the eyewitness explains. "He was being aggressively chased."
Either cops didn't fall for it, or maybe the star and director of The Town figured he could afford the ticket.
He drove off after being cited.
