After Justin Bieber was cited for speeding away from aggressive paparazzi on the 101 freeway, we kind of wondered what sort of photograph on the freeway would be worth the chase.

Do we have our answer today? A pap caught a shot of Kobe Bryant on the 405 freeway, driving his Ferrari. Bryant was caught yakking on his cell phone, which is a big no-no in the state of California. Bryant, unlike Bieber, seems either unfazed or oblivious to the photog shooting nearby.

He's sprung for the Ferrari; maybe it's time he spring for a Bluetooth, too?
