LeBron James police escort: Officer who led LeBron to Justin Timberlake/Jay-Z show to get counseling

MIAMI - "Informal counseling."

That's what the Miami-Dade Police Department says it will provide to the officer who provided a police escort to LeBron James so he could make it to last week's Justin Timberlake show with Jay-Z.

Police aren't identifying the officer -- and say no further action now that the investigation is complete.

James basically ratted out the police in the town where he's an NBA star -- by bragging about the police escort in video clips posted on his social networking accounts. Watch his Instagram video here - http://5.wews.com/occHe

The department acknowledged on Monday that officers violated policy by providing the police escort, which was not scheduled in advance.
