LeBron James may want to think twice before he tweets about his next police escort.
The four-time MVP was on his way to the Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake concert in Miami this weekend when he posted an Instagram video of himself and his crew getting a police escort.

Some people were upset with the police for providing James with this service, and sure enough the Miami-Dade police department launched an investigation into how the escort came to be. On Monday the police released the following statement:
"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.
Upon further investigation, it has been confirmed that Miami-Dade Police 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."
Above the rim? Frequently. Above the law? Definitely not.
