Ed Sheeran

Ed Sheeran wasn't kidding when he sang about "driving at 90 down those country lanes" in his new song "Castle On The Hill." The singer/songwriter got a speeding ticket in Suffolk in the UK, according to The Sun

The UK newspaper reports that Ed got a ticket for going 70 mph in a 60 mph zone while driving in his Aston Martin DB9.

According to The Sun, Ed received a fine and penalty points, and told the newspaper he was afraid his dad would be mad. "My dad was the one that found out about it and I thought he’d go mental, but he was super chill." 

Ed added, "He knows the road and he knows that it gets a lot of people making the same mistake. It was a local road and they changed it from 70 to 60 the week before and I didn’t know."

Ironically enough, he got a warning from the Suffolk police on Twitter after releasing his new songs, "Castle On The Hill" in particular. Suffolk police Sergeant Chris Harris tweeted, "#DriveToArrive @edsheeran Know you want to get home but please slow down on #SuffolkRoads #WelcomeBackEd #DrivingAt90 #CastleOnTheHill."
