'American Pie' singer fined for speeding in Maine - Article Photos 1/2

In this Juy 3, 2012 file photo provided by the Las Vegas News Bureau, Don McLean performs at the Las Vegas Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. McLean has been fined $400 for driving his Chrysler too fast through a school zone in Maine and has paid the levy. He had contested the charge in September, saying school zone warning lights weren't flashing. He had requested a trial. Police said during a 40-minute proceeding in Rockland District Court on Thursday, Jan. 24, 2013, the warning lights were flashing. Judge Patricia Worth found McLean had been speeding in a school zone in Rockport. But she lowered what would be a $515 fine if uncontested to $400. McLean immediately paid up. McLean lives in nearby Camden, along Maine's coast. (Photo/Las Vegas News Bureau, Darrin Bush)
