If you thought it was odd that Jeremy Clarkson hadn’t even mentioned the fact that Matt LeBlanc has joined the ‘Top Gear’ presenting team, it would seem that's because he's too busy being pulled over by the police.

The former host of the BBC Two motoring show, who was famously sacked following a fracas with a producer last year, has shared a picture on Twitter which appears to show him after his car was stopped by police officers.

The snap showed a police car pulled up in front of a black motor, believed to be Jeremy’s.
Sharing the photo on Twitter, he simply wrote: “My night.”
Many fans couldn’t get over the fact it meant Joey from ‘Friends’ would be fronting the BBC Two motoring, but commenting on his new role Matt said: “As a car nut and a massive fan of ‘Top Gear’, I'm honoured and excited to be a part of this iconic show’s new chapter. What a thrill!”
The US star’s appointment marks the first time the show has ever had a non-British host in its 39-year history.
He will join production of the new ‘Top Gear’ immediately, with additional cast members to be confirmed shortly.
Meanwhile, Jeremy and his former ‘Top Gear’ co-hosts Richard Hammond and James May are busy recording their new Amazon Prime series, after signing a multi-million pound deal with the streaming service.
Both shows are set to launch in May.
