Miami-Dade Police Department says officer violated policy by providing wrong-way escort

MIAMI – The Miami-Dade Police Department disciplined the officer who provided the wrong-way escort to LeBron James while the Miami Heat star was headed to the Jay Z and Justin Timberlake concert at Sun Life Stadium.

The department said the officer was given informal counseling. He wasn't identified.

James posted an Instagram video showing police escorting him while driving the wrong way. Department officials said the escort violated department policies.

According to a TMZ.com report, Jay Z refused to start the concert without James, which prompted police to escort him to the stadium.
