Chris Rock took a selfie after being pulled over by police while driving Tuesday, marking the third time in seven weeks he's posted while being stopped by a cop.

Rock posted the photo to his social media accounts early Tuesday, writing: "Stopped by the cops again wish me luck." In the shot, the comedian can be seen behind the wheel of a car with blue police lights shining through his rear window.

This is apparently the third time Rock has been pulled over in less than two months. He was pulled over Feb. 13 and on Feb. 27, sharing selfies both times.

Former "Grey's Anatomy" star Isaiah Washington tweeted a sobering response to Rock's posts.

Last year, Rock joked about cop stops while filming "Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee" with Jerry Seinfeld. The two were pulled over by a Ramsey, New Jersey, police officer while on their way to Rock's neighborhood of Alpine. Seinfeld was driving an orange 1969 Lamborghini Miura P400S at the time.

"It'd be such a better episode if he pulled me to the side and beats the s**t out of me, don't you think?" Rock joked. "Now here's the crazy thing: If you weren't here, I'd be scared. I'm famous, still black. Right now, I'm looking for my license right now."

After the stop, he added, laughing: "I was worried the whole time. I'm still worried."

The 50-year-old has tackled the issue of police relations in bits like "How To Not Get Your Ass Kicked By The Police" and in his stand-up.

"You keep notes. You look for the recurring," he told Vulture in December about how he crafts his stand-up routines. "What’s not going away? Boy, this police-brutality thing -- it seems to be lingering. What’s going to happen here? You don’t even have the joke, you just say, 'Okay, what’s the new angle that makes me not sound like a preacher?' Forget being a comedian, just act like a reporter. What’s the question that hasn’t been asked? How come white kids don’t get shot? Have you ever watched television and seen some white kid get shot by accident?"

A rep for Rock was not immediately available for comment.
