Reality television diva Kim Kardashian – and the paparazzi chasing her – caused a stir on a Los Angeles freeway Tuesday when she was pulled over and ticketed for speeding by the California Highway Patrol.
 
Us Weekly reported that Kardashian, 33, one of the stars of the E! reality show "Keeping Up with the Kardashians," was pulled over by troopers while trying to escape the paparazzi.
 
Once she was stopped, though, TMZ.com reported that photographers leaped out of five vehicles for pictures, causing traffic to slow to a crawl along the freeway. ()

"We're told a paparazzi helicopter was even hovering overhead," TMZ.com noted. "And police are (upset) – our law enforcement sources are saying the paps endangered multiple lives with their risky photography, including Kim's, other drivers on the road, and the officers involved."
 
TMZ.com reported that while Kardashian received a ticket for speeding, one of the photographers was cited for speeding, as well.
 
"According to sources, the CHP is now looking into the incident further to see if the case can be sent for further prosecution," TMZ.com reported. "As one source said, 'They're not getting away with this.'"
 
Us Weekly reported that Kardashian's fiancé, best-selling rapper Kanye West, has a well-documented history of taking on the paparazzi. In October, the celebrity magazine reported that West was ordered to stay 10 yards away from photographer Daniel Ramos, who had a confrontation with at Los Angeles International Airport in July. ()
 
Ramos filed a lawsuit against West after the July 12 confrontation, wrote Us Weekly. West countersued, charging self-defense, said the magazine.
 
"He didn't hurt the pap," a West source told Us Weekly. "They were just heckling him as usual. Kanye went to grab the camera and the guy fell being so dramatic."
 
Ramos, though, claimed that his right hip was injured when West punched him and wrestled him to the ground in what he called an unprovoked attack, according to The Associated Press. Ramos hired Gloria Allred to represent him.
 
"I told him twice, 'I don’t want to fight you,'" Ramos said in an August news conference, wrote the AP. "However, he attacked me anyway."
