A Miami police escort that helped LeBron James avoid traffic and get to a Jay Z and Justin Timberlake concert on time last Friday reportedly broke Miami-Dade Police Department protocol.

The police escort, which James filmed and posted online, allowed the Miami Heat star to drive on the wrong side of the road to catch the concert at Sun Life Stadium.

"This should not have happened," a Miami-Dade representative told TMZ.com.

The department is still looking into the circumstances involving the escort and which officers were involved. They will determine what punishment, if any, is appropriate for the offending officers.

Apparently, rapper Jay Z did not want to begin the concert until James was there, a source told the celebrity website.
