LAPD to Travis Barker:

You're Pissed, Let's Talk

The LAPD wants a face-to-face meeting with Travis Barker -- hoping to find out why the rocker has accused an officer of crossing the line during a routine traffic stop this weekend ... TMZ has learned.

Barker was pulled over Sunday after an officer noticed the drummer's car had no license plate and illegally tinted windows. Cops confirm Barker was issued a "fix-it" ticket and sent on his way.

But after the incident, Barker BLASTED the cop on Twitter -- saying, "Officer FARD of LAPD, get a life man. Find some bank robbers or do something productive 2 do with your time. I know high school was hard 4 u."

Barker continued, "Pullin me over interrogating me & acting like u did over tinted windows till u scared the piss out my kids was uncalled 4.Job well done man."

He also claims the officer "had the nerve" to ask if he had guns in the car.

Now, TMZ has learned ... Sgt. Riggs of the Topanga Station tells TMZ, "I'd like to invite Travis to speak with me about the incident ... and possibly discuss the situation with the officers involved."

A rep for Barker tells TMZ, "We are handling this privately with the LAPD."

Travis is a *********. He should man up & admit he was in the wrong, pay the ticket & fix the issues. Instead he is a gutless turd, Tweets the officer's name then when called on it, says he's handling it "privately"? What a jerk. No wonder his wife left him.

Why do the police treat these loser celebs so much differently than the rest of us? A D lister like Barker twitters and the cops invite him over to talk, why? I was pulled over a couple years ago by a bully, thug cop and didn't like the way I was treated, how come I wasn't invited over to chat with them about it? It's time for the LAPD to treat everyone the same! Most cops are high school bullies who never grew up, deal with it Travis

Not sure who is right here, but it is true, some people panic and makes it a bigger ordeal that what it needs to be, and some cops do abuse of authority...

So....we are required by law to have a license plate...but he does not. We are required by law to have a limit on how dark the windows on your personal vehicle are....but he disregards the law and put on dark windows anyway. So the officer is only doing his job, and this tool has the gaul to call him out on Twitter?! What a tool. You should not have been driving your kids around in a vehicle that was not street legal. And as for your disgusting tats, stupid skater-wear, not to mention the flat billed cap at an angle...you look like an atrocious idiot. Seriously. Grow up, man up and understand that because you are a sort of celebrity, you still have to follow the rules.

People judge you by what you look like. If you want to emulate a tatted out thug, expect to be treated like one. No plates and tinted windows...I don't blame that cop. He does not know you from a hole in the ground and he just wants to go home to his wife and kids in one piece. Obey the law and you won't be pulled over. If your kids were scared, you have no but yourself to blame and stop crying about it like a little baby!
