Posted: Updated:

Following the ceremony Christie responded to questions from the press regarding a bizarre incident last month in which State Troopers escorted a fleet of vehicles that included Porsches, Lamborghinis and Ferraris down the Garden State Parkway at speeds of more than 100 mph.

Christie, who expressed relief that no one was hurt, addressed the matter with his trademark bluntness.

"I just shook my head" when I heard the news, he said. "What are you going to do? It is a completely ridiculous story. It shouldn't have happened, it was a dumb thing to do but let me assure you it's not the last dumb thing we'll see happen...People make mistakes."
