Officer who gave LeBron James police escort disciplined
The officer who gave LeBron James an impromptu police escort to a Jay Z concert has been disciplined.
LeBron James received an unauthorized police escort to a recent Jay Z/Justin Timberlake concert in Miami. And after an internal investigation, the department will discipline the officer that provided it, via the Associated Press.
In a statement released Thursday, the 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.
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.
Initially the Miami-Dade police department denied any involvement in the incident, but then began investigating it.
The incident became public when LeBron posted a video on his Instagram account saying "light police escort on the wrong side of the street, headed to the big homie concert, JT. Holla."
