Fox News ‘Justice’ host Jeanine Pirro clocked going 119 mph

NEW YORK (AP) — Fox News Channel host Jeanine Pirro was issued a speeding ticket for driving 119 mph in a 65 mph zone in upstate New York.

The former Westchester County district attorney was stopped by a trooper on Sunday afternoon in Tioga County, according to the New York Daily News. A state police spokesman said he didn’t know what type of car Pirro was driving or whether she had any passengers.

Pirro said in a statement through Fox News Channel that she had been driving for hours to visit her ailing mother and didn’t realize how fast she was going. She said she will “pay the consequences.”

Pirro is host of the Fox News Channel show “Justice with Judge Jeanine.”
