The Miami-Dade Police Department says it will discipline the officer who provided a police escort to Miami Heat star LeBron James to the Justin Timberlake/Jay Z concert. In a statement released Thursday, the department says it has chosen to give the officer ‘‘informal counseling’’ after investigating the escort involving the athlete. James posted a video on social media sites before Friday’s concert saying he was following a police escort on the wrong side of the street. The video showed the police vehicles with their lights flashing.
