Tennis star Maria Sharapova had a little scare after being pulled over by police during a recent trip to Germany. The 28-year-old Sharapova was pulled over by cops during an early-morning drive through the town of Dusseldorf.
But it wasn’t because she was breaking the law — the German officers simply wanted to get a photograph with the Russian beauty.
When the police stops you at 7 am on the street, only to ask for a picture. #relievedsmile pic.twitter.com/rOkrM9Wrkx— Maria Sharapova (@MariaSharapova) October 2, 2015
The pro tennis star didn't seem too perturbed by the flashing lights or the flashbulbs. She can be seen smiling brightly with a female officer in the photo she posted on Twitter.
Sharapova wouldn't be racing to any tournaments anyway. She has been sidelined for most of the year due to injury. The five-time Grand Slam champion had to withdraw from the Wuhan Open last week, in her first match in three months, because of an arm injury.
