A suggested New Year’s resolution for Matt Dillon: Slow down.
On Tuesday night, the actor, 44, was pulled over in Newbury, Vt., after state troopers clocked him driving 106 mph in a 65 mph zone.
Dillon, who was driving a rented 2009 Chevy Impala, was taken to a station in nearby Bradford, where he was photographed, fingerprinted and given a citation.
The process typically takes 15 to 20 minutes, according to Vermont State Police Public Information Officer Sgt. Tara Thomas. “I have every reason to believe he was cooperative,” she says.
Dillon is due to appear at Orange County Court on Jan. 21.
His rep declined to comment.
