LeBron James pulled another LeBron-being-LeBron stunt over the weekend, finagling a police escort to the Justin Timberlake and Jay Z concert at Sun Life Stadium in Miami.
The move was criticized as an abuse of fame by many on social media, and it turns out the Miami-Dade Police Department wasn’t too pleased, either. The department has launched an investigation into the unnamed officer that provided the escort, saying that while no safety regulations were violated, it was not in line with police policy.
“It has been brought to our attention that a video was posted on the Internet by LeBron James, a professional basketball player, where it shows him being escorted onto the property of Sun Life Stadium for a concert on Friday, August 16, 2013,” a police spokesperson said in a statement.
“Upon further investigation, it has been confirmed that Miami-Dade Police did facilitated Mr. James from one intersection to another in the adjacent area of the stadium. his was not a scheduled escort and although all safety precautions were taken, the department has identified these actions as violated department policies.”
