Former NBA Star Iverson Tells Officer, "Do You Know Who I Am?"

April 08, 2011  | 

A suburban Atlanta police officer heard an earful from Allen Iverson, when he pulled over the former NBA star's gray 2007 Lamborghini Murcielago around 6 p.m. on March 30.

Iverson, who was a passenger in his own car, unleashed a verbal tirade on Atlanta Police Officer S.J. Durham, who pulled over the vehicle in Buckhead for expired tags, according to an incident report obtained by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

"Take the vehicle, I have 10 more," Iverson reportedly told the officer. "Police don't have anything else [expletive] to do except [expletive] with me. ... Do you know who I am?"

This is how they really act, wow how surprising. I can't stand any professional athletes anymore. I have worked around them and most of them act like this, complete AH. Then, when they get alot of money they act even worse.......Big babies, over paid thugs and just plain AH.

I know who you are, your a rude, selfish person. You have 10 Lamborghini cars and you can't afford the tags??? So what if you played professional sports, that doesn't make you a decent human being worthy of anyone's respect. you reap what you sow, "my man".

Ive had contact with both good and bad professional athletes. The ones who were bad were punks before they became famous. The Money only enhanced this bad quality. Rap stars are the worst.

To bad we can't say to rude people what we really are thinking...
Do you know who I am? Your worst nightmare!
Just because they are well known doesn't make them above the law. So glad he wasn't given a break and his car was towed. Hopefully they will not release it to him until he pays for and obtains valid tags.

Now that everyone is acquainted, maybe they can exchange Christmas cards.
