Sean Penn pulled over by sheriff in Malibu tafter returning from Ukraine


Sean Penn was spotted getting pulled over by a sheriff while driving through Malibu in his customized car this week.  

The 61-year-old appeared to get cited by the officer after driving along the Pacific Coast Highway, though it was unclear if he was handed a speeding ticket. 

DailyMail.com has reached out to Penn’s representatives for comment.  

Penn has recently returned to America after escaping Ukraine, where he was filming a VICE documentary up through the first days of the Russian invasion.

He was driving his charcoal vehicle that he has had customized with a bull-bar resembling those used by police cars. 

The Fast Times At Ridgemont High star kept his mask on while speaking with the law enforcement officer and giving him his details, though the sheriff was mask-free.

Last week Penn had to abandon a different car in Ukraine and flee to Poland on foot as refugees poured out of the war-torn country, he wrote on Twitter.

The Oscar winner said both he and his film crew decided to leave their vehicle and walk, after seeing the thousands of Ukrainian residents fleeing for safety, which left lines of vehicles stretching for miles. 

While tweeting last week, Sean described how cars were filled with women and children, with their only valuable being the vehicle they were traveling in.

Sharing a picture dragging a taped up suitcase, Sean wrote: ‘Myself & two colleagues walked miles to the Polish border after abandoning our car on the side of the road. 

‘Almost all the cars in this photo carry women & children only, most without any sign of luggage, and a car their only possession of value.’ 

Sean had been filming the documentary about the escalating tension in Ukraine since November last year. 

Meanwhile Sean has called Russian President Vladimir Putin‘s war on Ukraine  a ‘brutal mistake’.

He wrote over the weekend: ‘Already a brutal mistake of lives taken and hearts broken, and if he doesn’t relent, I believe Mr. Putin will have made a most horrible mistake for all of humankind. President Zelensky and the Ukrainian people have risen as historic symbols of courage and principle.’

He added: ‘Ukraine is the tip of the spear for the democratic embrace of dreams. If we allow it to fight alone, our soul as America is lost.’

Penn flew into the capital of Ukraine, Kyiv, and was seen sitting front and center at a government press briefing mere hours into the invasion as he represented VICE for a documentary being filmed about the war, which Putin deemed a ‘special military operation.’ 

The documentary is a VICE Studios production, ‘in association with VICE World News and Endeavor Content,’ according to a spokesman for the media group.

‘Sean Penn is among those who support Ukraine in Ukraine today. Our country is grateful to him for such a show of courage and honesty.
