It was only a matter of time. I saw this coming from a mile away. On Friday, LeBron shared a video on Instagram while he was getting a police escort to the Jay Z/JT concert in Miami…on the wrong side of the street. While it’s an impressive move, now people want on answers on why & how this came about.
Report after the jump…
LeBron James has police departments all over South Florida throwing up their hands … disavowing any involvement with the police escort LBJ got to a concert — but TMZ has learned Miami-Dade PD is now officially investigating the matter.
TMZ spoke with four police agencies — Miami City PD, Miami Gardens PD, Florida Highway Patrol, and Miami-Dade PD — and all stated on the record that it was not one of their cruisers leading LBJ to the Jay Z/Justin Timberlake show on Friday night.
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.
We’re told dignitaries typically make a written request for a police escort before an event — and that didn’t happen with LBJ.
