TORONTO -- Turns out Dan Aykroyd has a lead foot.

A Toronto cop clocked the Canadian actor for speeding Sunday morning as he was driving to his gig as the grand marshal of the Honda Indy Toronto, which was won by IndyCar racer Dario Franchitti.

"You know when you see these races, you want to get into your vehicles and drive home and you do it trying to imitate the driver. That won't be me this afternoon," Aykroyd told a pre-race press conference, the Canadian Press newswire reported Sunday.

Aykroyd, who comes originally from Ottawa, was let off with a warning.
