MIAMI (AP) -- The Miami-Dade Police Department says its officers violated policy by providing a police escort to Miami Heat star LeBron James through heavy traffic at last Friday's Justin Timberlake/Jay Z concert.

James posted a video before the concert at Sun Life Stadium saying he was following a police escort on the wrong side of the street.
