It pays to be a celebrity in many ways, and getting off easy with the law is definitely one of the perks.  Kanye West peeled out of the Chateau Marmont in West Hollywood in a hurry early this morning, January 3rd, and was eventually pulled over by police. The rapper was stopped for speeding and driving with tinted windows, but was simply let go with a mere warning.  Maybe the cops were feeling generous after Kanye spilled the beans about his impending fatherhood, or maybe they just didn't want to be the ones to give a ticket to Kanye West.

Either way, nice win for Kanye.
