The Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol star was also spotted making an unsafe lane change, prompting officials from the California Highway Patrol to stop the Range Rover she was driving.

However, the beauty's troubles weren't over - the car belonged to Patton's ex-husband Robin Thicke, who had failed to renew the Range Rover's registration.

Sources tell the singer's representatives had simply forgotten to take care of the registration issue for the car, which Thicke occasionally loans out to Patton.

It is not clear if Patton was cited for the traffic issues, or if she was let off with a warning.

The actress separated from Robin, the father of her six-year-old son Julian, in early 2014, after almost nine years of marriage. Paula and the Blurred Lines star, who started dating in their teenage years, divorced last year (15).
