Houston Rockets superstar James Harden has been in China the past week and was cruising with friends on motor scooters when he was stopped by local police.

TMZ Sports obtained a photo of Harden on a red scooter being stopped by police, who issued him a ticket — presumably for going too fast or breaking another traffic law.

He and his friends were allowed to leave, so it obviously wasn’t a major infraction.

Per TMZ Sports, Harden is in China doing promotional work for Adidas. He has met with fans at Beijing University of Technology and held a youth basketball clinic in Guangzhou.
