Jason Statham was reportedly stopped by police after stealing a golf cart.

The actor - who is dating model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley - left a post-Coachella Festival party in Palm Springs with reality TV star Kristin Cavallari at 4am on Saturday (17.04.10) in the buggy and were pulled over by officers after being spotted on the mini vehicle.

A source told the New York Daily News newspaper: "They were joking about how they wanted to take the cart off-roading.

"They were later spotted on a main road getting stopped by Palm Springs police.

"The officers ordered them to go back and return the cart and proceed immediately to their hotel rooms."

The pair - who have been romantically linked in the past but always insisted they were just friends - agreed to comply with the request and swiftly left the scene.

Jason and Kristin were not the only stars to attract attention at the Night Vision Oasis party at the Merv Griffin Estate on Saturday.

Lindsay Lohan was described as "out of control" when she got into an altercation with a photographer at the bash.

A source said: "She was pushing her way through the crowd to make a lap around the party, and when she was approached by a photographer, she hit his camera and shoved him away before storming off. As usual, she was out of control."
