Republican gubernatorial nominee Chris Christie was issued traffic tickets in 2005 for speeding, driving an unregistered vehicle and driving without insurance but was allowed to drive the vehicle home, Millennium Radio’s Kevin McArdle reported this afternoon.
McArdle said that the three tickets had the words “no deal” written on them.”
Christie later pleaded guilty to some charges, paid a large fine and signed an affidavit. The speeding fine was reduced, McArdle reported, while the unregistered vehicle charge was dismissed. A spokeswoman for Christie acknowledged to McArdle that “the fact that Christie was U.S. Attorney did come up.”
Also in the car with Christie during the traffic stop was his wife, children and former First Assistant U.S. Attorney Michele Brown, who resigned from the No. 2 spot yesterday after Christie’s $46,000 loan to her became a campaign issue.

"Gov. Chris Christie says he won’t campaign for the Republican gubernatorial candidate in New York because the cause is hopeless: Gov. Andrew Cuomo is ahead by more than 30 points. But he will campaign in New Hampshire, over and over, where the Republican is also trailing by more than 30 points. What’s the reason? It may be that New Hampshire holds the nation’s first presidential primary. It may be that he doesn’t want to mess with Cuomo, who knows where the skeletons are buried at the Port Authority. But one thing is certain: Gov. Straight Talk is spinning again. And it seems to be habit-forming." - columnist Tom Moran- Star-Ledger
