Randy Orton was pulled over by the cops in Florida on Monday, and the WWE star shared what he thought of the action immediately. Orton received his ticket, and he posed for a selfie that he shared on his Instagram. The look on his face definitely shows that he is not happy with the ticket or the reason for it. The police did not stop Orton for speeding or drinking and driving. The Spread It shared the photo and the reason for his being pulled over on July 22.

The Florida State Highway Patrol pulled Orton over because of his tinted windows. Orton drove through Miami on Monday, and his personal truck has heavily tinted windows on all four sides. In some states, it is against the law to tint the front windshield of your car. It is okay to tint the remaining windows. Apparently, Florida is one of the states where it is illegal to have the front windshield tinted. The Spread It reported that Orton likely received a $100 fine for the tinted windows.

Police stopped Orton for his truck windows in the past, and Orton was not at all happy about the police stopping him again for the tint. He said the following to caption his selfie on Instagram:

"Really? Again? You’d think the State Hwy Patrol would have bigger fish to fry then me and my overly tinted windows."

Orton visited Florida this week to participate in two WWE events, and he did not have the best week on that front. He lost his match on Sunday night, and he lost again on Monday night. WWE Battleground took place in Tampa Bay on Sunday night, and Orton lost his WWE championship belt to John Cena. On Monday Night Raw, Orton lost again, but he lost on purpose when he didn't take the tag in from Kane during a match between Orton, Kane, and Roman Reigns. Roman took the moment to pin Kane.

Orton's time in Florida was not all bad. The wrestler enjoyed the sun, the women, and the pools. Orton is still one of the biggest names in professional wrestling, and it is likely he will remain on top for quite some time. After his loss of his title on Sunday night, Orton wants another shot against Cena in the ring, that desire led to the 2-on-1 handicap match seen on Monday Night Raw.

Next up for WWE is Summerslam. That will air next month on pay-per-view. According to some reports, Orton will not get his shot against Cena during that event. The big match will feature Brock Lesnar instead, according to What! Culture. Triple H made the official on Monday night. Summerslam is set for Aug. 17 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Orton is definitely a busy man. His selfie generated new interested in him. He did break the law, but at the same time, being pulled over for the tint on his windows constantly would be annoying. One could say that he could just rid his front windshield of the tint to save himself the trouble of being stopped in the first. He makes it clear that he will not do that with this selfie post though.
