What’s going on that [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Jay-Z’s [/lastfm]name has come up in a police investigation of it’s own officers? And his name is not the only celebrity name that was brought up!

According to Hiphopwired.com here is what happened:

Jay-Z has been named as one of the celebrities that the Washington DC Police Department says may have received unauthorized police escorts.

The DCPD is conducting an internal investigation to see if celebrities such as Jigga, Bill Gates and Charlie Sheen – also named in the investigation – may have obtained police escorts, violating department procedure.

Police Chief Kathy Ranier recently voiced the department’s take on the matter saying police escorts are strictly for “presidents, vice presidents, visiting heads of state, mayor and others, if there’s a public safety issue.”

As previously reported, the New York police department was recently under a similar investigation after rap mogul [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Diddy[/lastfm] reportedly received an unauthorized police escort to a party following one of his concerts.

To me there should be a lot more names placed on that list than the three that’s on there now! That rule by police has been broken more often than they know. And those who did break the rule many times over, are not talking in fear of their losing their jobs.
