It looks like Allen Iverson was feeling himself a little too much; so much in fact that he had no problem putting a police officer in check. The former NBA superstar, who currently plays in the Turkish Basketball League for the Beşiktaş, was pulled over by Atlanta police in a car that he was riding in last week for a traffic violation.
The car, a grey Lamborghini that was driven by Antwuan Clisby, was stopped for changing lanes without signaling. Clisby couldn’t produce any documentation for the vehicle, which the officer found belonged to Iverson when he scanned the identification number of the vehicle. The tags for the car expired in 2009. Clisby told the officer his passenger needed to leave the vehicle to eat dinner. When the officer said no one was permitted to leave until his investigation was complete, Iverson berated the officer, according to CNN.
“I’m the (expletive) passenger,” he said.
In the middle of his explicit-filled tirade against the officer, Iverson made it plain that he was unfazed when he was told that the car would be towed.
“Take the vehicle, I have 10 more,” he said. “Police don’t have anything else (expletive) to do except (expletive) with me. Do you know who I am?”
According to the officer’s report, Iverson carried on for the next 20 minutes about who he was. The officer replied, “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.”
In response, Iverson scuffed, “I make more money than you will in 10 years.”
But apparently, seeing his vehicle told made him have a change of heart. He later “came back and apologized for disrespecting the police,” according to the police report. “He stated he was just upset about his car.”
