[photogallerylink id=26671 align=left]Why has [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Jay-Z’s [/lastfm]name has been coming up in a few investigations dealing with scadalous police behavior lately? The latest is a ticket-fixing scandal, where he is named along with other celebrities too.
According to HiphopDX.com who got a hold of the reports:
Hov is reportedly one of many celebrities who gets out of traffic tickets.
When Jay-Z’s driver gets pulled over for violating traffic laws, he gets off easy. According to the New York Daily News, Hov is one of many celebrities including A-Rod and Raymond Felton to use their star power to weasel out of tickets, with policemen unlawfully fixing tickets after they learn that the violators were celebrities or celebrity affiliates.
The report claims that Jay-Z’s driver was pulled over last year for speeding on the West Side Highway. A “friendly” cop lost the paperwork after it was filed, and the case was subsequently swept under the rug. Jay-Z’s publicist declined to comment.
The Internal Affairs Bureau is currently investigating these incidents. If found in violation of the law, as many as 40 policeman could be indicted for “improperly voiding tickets, losing paperwork or purposely missing court dates in order to squash summonses.”
I’m willing to bet that it’s just not Hov and these couple of names they have released getting this special treatment in New York. With the thousands of celebrities living there? This happens everyday!!
