First lady Maria Shriver's been caught cell-handed, breaking a law that prohibits talking on the phone while driving not once, not twice, but three times by the celebrity gossip hounds over at TMZ.

TMZ has posted two photos and a video of Shriver chatting away -- without the hands-free headset allowed by law -- while behind with wheel.

The most recent offense, snapped last Sunday, is the second photo this year that has surfaced of the first lady breaking the measure her very own husband supported and signed into law.

TMZ got "radio silence" when it asked for a response from the first lady's spokesperson (who also declined comment for The Bee), but Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger issued his response on the Twitterverse earlier today.

"Thanks for bringing her violations to my attention, @harveylevintmz. There's going to be swift action," he tweeted in response to a post from TMZ publisher Harvey Levin.

So what exactly will the "swift action" entail?

"He's going to ask her not to do that anymore," Schwarzenegger spokesman Aaron McLear told my colleague Kevin Yamamura, adding that the governor had no immediate plans to donate a sum equal to the fine assessed for a talking-while-driving violation ($20 plus fees for the first offense, racked up to $50 plus fees for offense No. 2).

Not so harsh coming from a man said at a 2007 bill signing that he'd dole out the following punishment if he caught one of his daughters chatting on her cell while driving:

"I'll get you the car, I'll get you the cell phone. But if I see you one time using both at the same time, both of them are gone. The car will be gone for a long time, and the phone will be gone for a long time, and you go to school with the bus."

We're guessing Maria won't be relegated to riding the bus, but if she is, odds are TMZ will be there to catch it.

What You Should Know About Comments on Sacbee.com

Sacbee.com is happy to provide a forum for reader interaction, discussion, feedback and reaction to our stories. However, we reserve the right to delete inappropriate comments or ban users who can't play nice. (See our full terms of service here.)

Here are some rules of the road:

• Keep your comments civil. Don't insult one another or the subjects of our articles. If you think a comment violates our guidelines click the "report abuse" button to notify the moderators. Responding to the comment will only encourage bad behavior.

• Don't use profanities, vulgarities or hate speech. This is a general interest news site. Sometimes, there are children present. Don't say anything in a way you wouldn't want your own child to hear.

• Do not attack other users; focus your comments on issues, not individuals.

• Stay on topic. Only post comments relevant to the article at hand. If you want to discuss an issue with a specific user, click on his profile name and send him a direct message.

• Do not copy and paste outside material into the comment box.

• Don't repeat the same comment over and over. We heard you the first time.

• Do not use the commenting system for advertising. That's spam and it isn't allowed.

• Don't use all capital letters. That's akin to yelling and not appreciated by the audience.

You should also know that The Sacramento Bee does not screen comments before they are posted. You are more likely to see inappropriate comments before our staff does, so we ask that you click the "report abuse" button to submit those comments for moderator review. You also may notify us via email at feedback@sacbee.com. Note the headline on which the comment is made and tell us the profile name of the user who made the comment. Remember, comment moderation is subjective. You may find some material objectionable that we won't and vice versa.

If you submit a comment, the user name of your account will appear along with it. Users cannot remove their own comments once they have submitted them, but you may ask our staff to retract one of your comments by sending an email to feedback@sacbee.com. Again, make sure you note the headline on which the comment is made and tell us your profile name.
