Allen Iverson Played The 'Do You Know Who I Am?' Card To Atlanta Police

Remember that story from last week about Allen Iverson having his Lamborghini impounded by Atlanta police, then being picked up by a friend in a Rolls Royce, which is actually a likely upgrade? It gets better!

Apparently the Answer told APD at the time, "Take the vehicle. I have 10 more. Police don't have anything else [awkward expletive that's hard to decipher, probably f*****', but what a weird place to use a f*****'] to do except f*** with me. Do you know who I am?"

The Michael Irvin Defense never really gets 'em, and a seemingly amused officer wrote in his report, "For the next 20 minutes, Mr. Iverson went on and on about who he was." Got no love for the cops when it comes to matters of an all-timer just tryna live, but that's funny. AI later returned to apologize to police.

We already knew the impounding was for expired dealer tags, but the CNN report adds that the dealer tag was actually a fake. Getting mad at police for making you wait while they impound your backup Lambo, but printing your license plate off the internet: can't think of a scenario more budget ballin'.
