SOPERTON, Ga. – Academy Award winner Ben Affleck was stopped by sheriff's deputies after he was clocked driving 114 mph on a Georgia interstate, the actor's publicist said Monday.
The star of Pearl Harbor paid a $1,114 fine and was allowed to go on his way, publicist David Pollick said. Affleck was not arrested, he said.
Pollick said the 29-year-old Affleck, on vacation, was driving a black Cadillac when he was stopped by a Treutlen County deputy about 10 p.m. Wednesday. The speed limit on the stretch of Interstate 16 where Affleck was stopped is 70 mph.
Treutlen sheriff's deputy Sidney Love said Affleck followed a sheriff's deputy to the county jail, where the actor paid his fine and was released in less than 20 minutes.
Affleck was driving west on I-16, which connects the middle Georgia city of Macon with Savannah on the coast. Affleck filmed parts of the 1999 movie Forces of Nature in Savannah.
Affleck's other films include Chasing Amy, Armageddon and Dogma. He and Matt Damon shared a screenplay Academy Award for Good Will Hunting.
