Usher’s So Charming, He Turns a Traffic Stop Into a Selfie Op
Is there no end to Usher’s charms? It seems even cops aren’t immune to his particular brand of swag.
After reportedly burning through a hard yellow on Sunset Boulevard around 2 a.m. early Sunday morning, the “Good Kisser” singer and coach on The Voice soon saw the flashing lights of an Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputy in his rearview mirror. However, after pulling over outside of a nearby bar, it seems the officer who motioned him to the side of the road got a little starstruck.
According to TMZ, the suave singer got off without a citation and even posed for a selfie with the deputy inside Rock & Reilly’s Pub. The L.A. County Sheriff’s department insists it wasn’t a traffic stop and added that it’s not against policy for deputies to pose for selfies with celebs.
If it wasn’t a traffic stop, though, we have to wonder why the officer flashed his lights in the first place. Perhaps he recognized Ush and made a #YOLO decision to get the singer’s attention? We have to say if we were officers of the law in a city teeming with celebs, we’d have trouble not exercising that kind of power on the daily.
