One Direction member Louis Tomlinson got in trouble with the NYPD while he was in New York - for standing up through the sunroof of a car while it was moving.

The 20 year old boyband member was fillming himself singing for the band's upcoming 3D movie, but officers didn't approve of his actions and pulled the car over.

The action caused a traffic jam in New York, causing cars to be held up behind them as the NYPD told the boys off.

A source told The Sun, "Louis and the lads are having a great time in the Big Apple and want to capture every minute.

"Louis was only standing through the sunroof momentarily but it was long enough to catch the eye of the cops. He may have found it funny but motorists stuck in a traffic jam certainly didn't."

The band were let off with just a warning and a lecture on road safety, with the officers even asking for photos with the stars.

Band member Liam Payne also had a bit of a run in with security. The singer visited the Empire State building earlier, and took to Twitter after the visit to accuse staff of being arrogant and disrespectful.

He posted, "Just been to the Empire State Building had a great time except... The security detail, in particular the senior security supervisor, was arrogant, unprofessional and extremely disrespectful to my family @EmpireStateBldg #TheresAlwaysTimeForManners."

However, the media team replied, "@Real_Liam_Payne bad behaviour not accepted at ESB. No, our security does not know who you are, and does not care."

Liam clearly changed his mind as he responded, "Seems there was a bit of a mix up when I was at the empire state. Its all good. Sorry for confusion looking fwd to next timeeeee!

"I would like to formally apologise to the Empire State Building security team and its owners for our misunderstanding the other night.

"I didn't mean to cause anyone any problems and hope that I can come back again for a visit again in the future :)"
