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.
