The Miami-Dade Police Department said in a statement released Monday that James’ police escort through traffic for Friday’s Justin Timberlake/Jay Z concert violated policy. The escort, near Sun Life Stadium, did not breach safety regulations but should not have been allowed, the department said.
“It has been brought to our attention that a video was posted on the Internet by LeBron James … where it shows him being escorted onto the property of Sunlife Stadium for a concert on Friday,” the statement said.
James brought the escort to the attention of police and the world by posting a video of it to Instagram, which also showed up on his Twitter feed.
To add insult to injury, he added the caption “They treat us so well. Needed it cause traffic was nuts!!”
Check out the video:
James, who has led the Miami Heat to consecutive NBA championships and won four of the past five NBA MVPs, received criticism on social media after posting about his escort. Most prominently, Minnesota Wild hockey player Jon Blum called the police escort a waste of taxpayer money.
Looks like LBJ still needs a lesson in Social Media 101.
