The 39-year-old 'Training Day' star narrowly avoided a ticket when she was pulled over by a police officer on a bicycle in Los Angeles after he spotted her chatting into the device in her grey Lexus SUV, reported TMZ online.

Mendes was reportedly given a piece of paper but apparently talked her way out of a ticket. 
The brunette beauty has had a difficult time recently as rumours surfaced she split from her boyfriend Ryan Gosling after almost three years together over Christmas.

But a spokesperson for the actress said that the breakup reports were just rumours.

The '2 Fast 2 Furious' star also sparked speculation she was pregnant when she refused to go through an airport security scan recently. PTI
