Action star-turned Californian Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger is to take some "swift action" against his wife Maria Shriver as she repeatedly flouts the law against using a cell phone while driving.

Shriver was caught red handed in photos and a video TMZ.com posted on its Web site, which show her breaking the law prohibiting driving under the influence of a cell phone.

The 'Terminator' actor, who signed the law last year, responded by writing on his Twitter page, "Thanks for bringing her violations to my attention. ... There's going to be swift action."

Arnold's spokesman Aaron McLear said that by "swift action," the governor means he'll ask his wife not to hold the phone while driving.

The state ban on handheld cell phone use while driving went into effect July 1, 2008. It carries a fine of USD 20 on the first conviction and USD 50 on the second, not including penalties.
