Carrie Underwood pulled over for speeding

Nashville - Carrie Underwood and her husband were pulled over for speeding on Monday.

The country music star and her ice hockey player spouse Mike Fisher were stopped by police officers after exceeding a 45 mile-per-hour speed limit and the 30-year-old beauty later poked fun at the situation on Twitter.

Carrie tweeted: ", Mr. 'I'm gonna start a driving school in Nashville' just got us pulled over for going 56 in a 45. Just sayin... (sic)". Defending his brush with the law, speed demon Mike, 33, claimed he was rushing home because the couple's pet pup had to go to the toilet.

Motoring prowess

He wrote: "@carrieunderwood not my fault Ace had to pee! (sic)". Ironically, just hours prior to the incident, Mike boasted about his motoring prowess and even posted "driving 101" tips on his Twitter account.

The ice hockey star tweeted: "I think I may start a driver education school in Nashville. U could make a fortune: ) #drivingpetpeeves driving slow in the fast lane. #drivingpetpeeves not moving halfway into the intersection when waiting to turn left at a green light #driving101 (sic)".

Although her week may have ended on a low point, former American Idol winner Carrie had reason to celebrate last week as she took home the top prize at the CMT Country Music Awards.

The singer earned the Video of the Year prize for her song Blown Away.
