Police Officer Who Escorted LeBron James to Concert Disciplined

Following an investigation into a police escort of LeBron James to a Jay Z/Justin Timberlake concert in Miami, the officer who provided the service will receive a light slap on the proverbial wrist. Per the AP: “In a statement released Thursday, the Miami-Dade Police Department says it has chosen to give the officer ‘informal counseling’ after investigating the escort involving the athlete. The statement says no further action will be taken. It does not identify the officer. James posted a video on social media sites before Friday’s concert saying he was following a police escort on the wrong side of the street. The video showed the police vehicles with their lights flashing. The department said Monday that officers violated policy by providing the police escort. It wasn’t scheduled in advance and all safety precautions appeared to have been taken.”

    Called it all the way. I loved how people overreacted and were saying LeBron would cause this dude to be fired. People know nothing about the real world and police officers. It takes A LOT to have a police officer fired.
