Last week in Atlanta, former NBA great Allen Iverson had his precious Lamborghini towed … which didn’t sit too well with the old NBA MVP.
Find out why the po-po towed AI’s lambo, (along with his reaction) below:
First of all, the expired tags the car was pulled over for in the first place, have been expired since 2009. There’s no reason why a millionaire should be on the road in a vehicle with expired tags. It’s not like he can’t afford it.
Second of all, Iverson and the driver of his vehicle, Antwuan Clisby, were driving around in a car with no documentation in it. How stupid is that? But wait, it gets worse.
When Clisby told the officer that his passenger (Iverson) had to make it to a 6 PM dinner, the officer told him no one was leaving until the investigation was complete. That’s when Iverson became “irate,” and the officer called for backup. And that’s never a good thing.
When Iverson was told that the Lamborghini would be towed, however, is when he lost it according to CNN.com:
“Take the vehicle, I have 10 more,” Iverson said, according to the report. “Police don’t have anything else (expletive) to do except (expletive) with me.” He then asked, “Do you know who I am?”
The officer wrote in his report that “For the next 20 minutes, Mr. Iverson went on and on about who he was. I stated to Mr. Iverson, ‘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,” according to the report.
Real class act right there. Need more like him.
