The mother of 14 children received the citation in La Habra, California. "Nadya Suleman was pulled over and given a ticket for driving while talking on a cell phone on a public roadway," Fred Whiste, Watch Commander at La Habra Police Department, told Us Tuesday. "What I heard is that it happened about 9 a.m. She will get a document from the court, explaining what she needs to do. Whether that is providing a bail amount or appear in court, that's her choice."

At least one child was in the car at the time she was pulled over, according to TMZ.com. This isn't the first time Suleman has had a run-in with law enforcement.

Police say they've visited the homes of Suleman several times in the last 16 months to respond to complaints about lost, trapped or poorly cared for children. In addition to a July 2008 complain that the children were apparently not cared for sufficiently, cops also visited the home to free a child from a locked bedroom and after Suleman called to report her 5-year-old daughter missing. The child had wandered off and was found safe.
