File this under News You Didn’t Expect When You Got Up This Morning But Still Aren’t Shocked By At ALL: Allen Iverson went OFF on the cops last week!
After a car belonging to him was pulled over for a traffic violation last week, the former NBA star told the officer, “Take the vehicle, I have 10 more.”
Iverson was a passenger in the grey Lamborghini spied by an Atlanta officer changing lanes without signaling about 6 p.m. March 30, CNN reports.
The driver, Antwuan Clisby, couldn’t produce any documentation for the vehicle, then told the officer Iverson needed to leave the car to eat dinner.
The officer said no one was leaving until the investigation was done.
Iverson became “irate” at that notion, proclaiming, “I’m the (expletive) passenger.” The officer radioed for backup, and a second unit arrived.
Clisby and Iverson exited the car, and A.I. kept cursing at the officer, who informed him of his expired tags and that the car would be towed.
“Take it, I have 10 more,” Iverson said. “Police don’t have anything else (expletive) to do except (expletive) with me … Do you know who I am?”
“I stated, ‘It really doesn’t matter who you are. You tried to conceal your vehicle with a fake drive-out tag due to you not paying for your tags.'”
Iverson then said, “I make more money than you will in 10 years.”
Clisby then asked, “Would you want to pay $10,000 for a tag?”
To his credit, Iverson later “came back and apologized for disrespecting the police,” the report said. “He stated he was just upset about his car.”
Clisby was cited for not signaling and for the expired tag. Bet the fee to get the ride out of the city tow lot was under $10K though. Just saying.
