Messina Walks on By

Jo Dee Messina eluded a jaywalking ticket in Los Angeles Tuesday (May 21) during her daily exercise. After looking both ways for traffic, Messina jogged to a median in the street, looked again and crossed the rest of the way. A motorcycle cop nabbed her but let her off the hook because a truck was blocking the Walk/Wait sign. Being in town on business — she performed “Bring on the Rain” on the ACM Awards — probably helped her case, too. The guys in McBride and the Ride, who have reunited for the new album Amarillo Sky, weren’t so lucky. Terry McBride, Ray Herndon and Billy Thomas were all ticketed Wednesday (May 22) in Los Angeles for jaywalking. 05/23/02
