Steve Guttenberg to LAPD — Thanks for the Ride!

1211_steve-guttenberg_getty_ex2Steve Guttenberg found himself in an LAPD squad car earlier today …  and was hauled down Hollywood Blvd … but has learned the “Police Academy” star set the whole thing up.

Guttenberg was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame this morning … and law enforcement sources tell us he was REALLLY into the idea of arriving in a cop car.

We”re told Steve called in a favor from the boys in blue … who helped make Steve”s wish come true.

So, congratulations hookers and homeless people in Hollywood … you now have a new celebrity to crap on.
