MIAMI -- The Miami-Dade Police Department says its officers violated policy by providing a police escort to Miami Heat star LeBron James through heavy traffic at last Friday's Justin Timberlake/Jay Z concert.

The agency issued a statement Monday saying it will continue to investigate the matter.

James posted a video before the concert at Sun Life Stadium saying he was following a police escort on the wrong side of the street.

The video showed James following police vehicles with their lights flashing. 

The video was posted on several of James' social media accounts.

The police statement said officers escorted James from one intersection to another, onto the stadium's property. 

The statement also said the escort was not scheduled in advance and all safety precautions appeared to have been taken.
