Halle Berry gets police escort at airport security line

Who knew that Halle Berry was big in Canada? Well, maybe it was her boyfriend, a Canadian model, who was able to inspire the local police to provide special treatment.

At a Montreal airport last week, Berry, her boyfriend (Gabriel Aubry) and their kid were led to the front of the security line … while other passengers were stuck there for more than an hour. Marieve Paradis, a Quebec journalist, saw the cop make way for Berry and her family, and detailed it on her blog Friday.

According to Police Inspector Jimmy Cacchione, the star-struck officer acted alone, and his actions weren’t supported by the department. He won’t be punished, Cacchione said, but the police unit working the airport will be putting tighter rules in place for the future.
