Earlier in the summer, LeBron James was showing off his preferential treatment as he had a DJ set up in his hotel room in Asia. Now the league MVP, posts a video on Instagram of him headed to the Legends Of The Summer concert which is headlined by Jay Z and Justin Timberlake.
LBJ had a police escort on his way to the venue and the car he was in was driving on the wrong side of the road. Perks of being the King.
[UPDATE: Police Investigating Who Escorted LeBron]
No Miami-area police departments have owned up to giving LeBron James an escort on his way to the Jay Z and Justin Timberlake show, and TMZ reports that an investigation has been launched to find out who authorized the escort - which saw James driving on the wrong side of the road. Usually to receive such treatment, a written request has to be submitted well in advance.
However, several law enforcement sources kept pointing us back to Miami-Dade PD, claiming that would be the agency with jurisdiction at Sun Life Stadium, where the concert was held.While Miami-Dade initially denied involvement ... an officer with the agency now tells us they are "investigating" because LBJ's escort would've been a break from protocol.
