Cricket greats fined after seatbelt slip-up

SYDNEY (AP) Former test cricketers Shane Warne, Michael Slater and Kevin Pietersen have been fined $300 for failing to wear seatbelts by Tasmanian police who spotted the offense in a video on Warne's Facebook page.

The four-minute video showed Warne, his former Australia teammate Slater and England's Pietersen traveling in a van with former Australia captain Mark Taylor and Ian Healy. The group form the cricket commentary team for Australia's Channel Nine.

After being filmed for a couple of minutes, the men realized their mistake and put on seatbelts. But sharp-eyed visitors to Warne's page commented on their infringement and alerted police who investigated.

In a statement police said infringements were issued ''after police reviewed a video posted on one of the men's Facebook page.''
