Jamie Lynn Decoy

Triggers Investigation

9/12/2008 8:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Imagine flying into L.A., when cops ask you to become part of a Britney Spears decoy caper.

Take a look at this video. The pappers thought the woman flanked by LAX police was Jamie Lynn Spears, who flew in yesterday on Delta. Now here's where the plot thickens.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ that, on Tuesday, someone from Britney Spears' camp contacted LAX police, asking for a security escort. The way the cops understood the call, Britney was flying in Wednesday with Jamie Lynn, her baby and Lynne.

At the last minute, cops found out Britney was not on the plane. They still were sympathetic because a bunch of pappers were at the airport waiting for Jamie Lynn. Cops were concerned her baby might be at risk in a pap crush, so they allowed Jamie Lynn and crew to exit the plane onto the tarmac, where a car drove them away.

Now here's where it gets good. For some reason, the cops wanted to fool the paparazzi, so they got a random woman on that flight who kinda sorta looked like Jamie Lynn and asked her if they could escort her to baggage claim. She said yes, and the ruse began.

By the way, we've learned there's an internal investigation because some big wigs in the police department are pissed.

I guess the "bigwigs" want to see why these pigs are not busy keeping the airport safe for ALL PEOPLE. All Cops Are Pigs!

Why are my tax dollars being used to escort some hag in the first place. I want a refund. This crap is not the sort of thing that police are supposed to be doing. catch criminals and let the so called stars pay for their escorts.

Can't the Spears family hire their own security to protect their sorry butts? The policy should be on the streets doing their job not doing private security with taxpayer money.

Well the truth starts coming out... The Cops feeding the Paps info... The Chief of Police against the new Britney Law, Sort of makes you wonder.. The other commenters are rights, there needs to be a re-adjustment in the PD.. And heads should roll, but when you have the Chief of Police standing behind them, you have to wonder where their priorities are.. La has never been known to have the finest PD.. And their badges are showing tranish again..... Sad... Amazing, I was always trained to believe that Officers never made statements to the press, that's what they have a Public Relations Officer. Also, seems that Britney is getting wise to the PD... When you can't trust the Police, your left out fend for yourself.....

I wonder.. what would the paparazzi do if their picture was taken, people would hide in the bushes waiting for them, hawk the paparazzi all the time at their job locations, check into paparazzi back ground on their habits (drinking, drug habits, domestic abuse, police records, known associates). It sure would be interesting to see how they would weather their careers and personal life when exposed. People.. popular or not are entitled to their private life. Britney Spears.. I don't know her however, why don't they live her alone. Who really cares that she just got off a plane.. come on paparazzi.. focus, before you are the center on attention..

Why do people keep saying it was a good idea "to keep the baby safe"? The baby got in a car and drove off and wasn't even in the airport. There was no reason for them to waste their time other than wanting attention.
