LeBron James — Police Escort to Jay Z Concert No Big Deal

Exclusive 0822_lebron_miami_dade_getty
The Miami-Dade Police Dept. is pooh-poohing criticism that it crossed the thin blue line last Friday by giving LeBron James a police escort to the Jay Z concert.

$(function() $(“#poll-1197-175058bb1dafa378c43f449dad3cd872 div form ul li”) .children() .not($(“div.styledRadio”)) .filter(“input:radio”) .screwDefaultButtons( checked: “url(http://ll-assets.tmz.com/www.tmz.com/default/cache/images/radio_Checked.v2013_04_30_065211.gif)”, unchecked: “url(http://ll-assets.tmz.com/www.tmz.com/default/cache/images/radio_Unchecked.v2013_04_30_065211.gif)”, width: 20, height: 20, pollid: “1197-175058bb1dafa378c43f449dad3cd872”, ); });

As we reported … Jay Z had announced he would not start the show until LeBron arrived.

It”s nice to be famous, right
