Either way, Louis did the honors of giving One Direction their first run-in with the police! While being chauffeured with Niall Horan through NYC, Louis stood up through the SUV's sunroof, camera in hand, while the car was still moving. He was merely singing while doing this, but nearby cops didn't seem to care and pulled the vehicle over.
Fortunately or unfortunately, the end result was fairly anticlimatic. Two cops had a word with the driver before sending the boys off on their way.
If Louis was filming for the band's upcoming 3D movie, we really hope this incident isn't left on the cutting room floor.
What do you think of Louis getting pulled over?
