Traffic stop results in rant from Allen Iverson

    A car belonging to Allen Iverson was pulled over in Atlanta last week when the driver failed to signal a lane change. Iverson was in the passenger seat, impatiently awaiting his dinner.


    Driver Antwuan Clisby told police his passenger needed to leave for dinner, but the cops were having none of it. That’s when Iverson stepped in and went on a Charlie Sheen-like rant.

    “Don’t you know who I am?” he reportedly asked police as they checked his tags and discovered they’d expired in 2009.

    The police report indicates the infamous Sixer prattled on for 20 minutes, finally telling the cops they could tow the car because he has 10 more. He later apologized for the incident.
