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.

Disgusting    

As usual L.A. law enforcement is useless and wasting resources. This is where your taxes are going, folks. This is what the cops are doing when they claim to be "too busy" to help you.

How fitting that on 9/11 of all days this is what the cops are doing.

Can someone explain to me, what is so special about Jaime Lynn Spears, other than her name.
What has she done except have a baby at the age of 16 that deserves all this attention.

I think it's funny that the paparazzi got tricked. They deserve it.

I think it's hilarious. Less harm done in escorting Jane Doe than what the press was up to. Besides, WHO CARES WHERE JAMIE LYNN SPEARS is?

That is so funny. The paps were easily out smarted again. I think Harvey Levin leads the pack with an IQ of 38. Of course the rest of the shmucks IQ's range well south of the Harvey's. Hey TMZ you should run a clip of your camera being thrown to the ground and smashed to pieces every time you go to commercial. Now that would be classic. Just an Idea.
