The Miami Heat superstar was struggling in traffic as he headed to the Justin Timberlake/Jay Z concert at Sun Life Stadium on Friday. In an unexpected move, the Miami-Dade Police Department offered James a secure escort on the opposite side of the road to ensure he reached the concert on time.
No big deal? Not so fast.
After James posted a video chronicling his preferential treatment, an investigation was launched by the police department. According to police, the escort was safely handled but should not have been allowed. The maneuver was deemed "a violation of departmental policy."
It's possible the matter never would have been brought to light had James not tweeted about it.
"They treat us so well! Needed it cause traffic was nuts!!" James tweeted along with an Instragram video of the escort.
According to police, an investigation into the matter will continue.
