Tsk tsk. One Direction cutie Louis Tomlinson had a bit of a run-in with a pair of cops while in NYC. The long arm of the law stopped Tomlinson for hanging out of the sunroof of his SUV, which of course came with a driver.

Tomlinson wasn't merely waving to Directioners or taking in the hustle and bustle of the city while peeking out of the sunroof. He was filming himself wearing a bulky, gray knit hat and lip synching, so there was a purpose to his antics. He was creating content. For what? Well, that remains to be seen.

Regarding the police incident, two members of the po-po pulled the ride over and talked to the driver. You can even see 1D's Niall Horan in the black SUV, as well.

The cops appeared to take a photo with the 1D boys after they engaged in a little discussion while being pulled over. Obviously, 1D were truly documenting this experience, even the not-so-fun parts that included the authorities.

The driver and 1D probably made off with a slap on the wrist and a warning. No jail time for 1D while in American. Whew.

We're left to wonder what Tomlinson was filming that footage for. Perhaps their upcoming, Morgan Spurlock-directed 3D film?
