BERNARDSVILLE, N.J. (CBS) — The first lady of New Jersey learns the hard way – you can’t have a cellphone in your hand while behind the wheel in the Garden State, even if you are not talking on it.
We learned on Thursday that a police officer pulled over Mary Pat Christie in Somerset County on April 10.
He was on a distracted driving detail as part of the “U-Drive, U-Text, U-Pay” awareness campaign.
Christie did not identify herself as Gov. Chris Christie’s wife, and said she was not talking on the phone, just holding it.
She paid the $250 fine.
