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."

"do you have guns in the back of your car"? Of course he asked that. For HIS safety... The 1 time he doesn't ask is when they will and could result in the loss of his own life.. Talk about travis B taking it way way to personally.. Maybe he felt guilty of something..maybe he was stoned...

He's not a "celebrity." He's more of a known unknown.

Ha How dare they treat you like someone with no plates and a illegal tint. Couldn't they see you were white?

Good for you, get them all fired. #Little_Princess

Good riddance!    

This just sounds like Barker hates cops and ranted because they had the 'audacity' to pull him over for a standard traffic stop. It's maybe something that pissed people off but if you run no license plate and have illegal tint, you can get one of these fix it tickets and that's just how it is. The cops probably couldn't even see who was in the car, because of all things, illegally dark tint. Asking about weapons in a car is standard officer safety. My clean cut uncle in his 60s was asked this question too when he was pulled over. Good job whining there, Travis.

Ok, now you want to handle it privately. Now that you have blasted the officer over your twitter. You are a tool! You are not above the law, your has been. What everyone has to have a tag but you? Get over yourself.

He is criticizing our horrible legal system. How much taxes has Travis paid in the past 10 years - $75 million?

Travis Barker said:


"I was never disciplined in my life. I was praised too much as a child. Now I am having a tantrum."


Barker continued, "Waaaahhh. Now give me some candy."

Sounds like someone thinks he is above being stopped by police.

What does he expect? Travis Barker was in the wrong and how foolish he sounds rattling off the tirade. He should be more grateful. Obviously, he forgot all about his near death experience when the plane crashed years ago. Shame on him.

Punk ass biatch probably used the other passengers as human shields in that plane crash.

WTH! Who does this guy think he is? No license plates and thug boy tinting?? And he was asked if he had guns in the car? Isn't that just too f***king bad. And he gets a fix it ticket and he's still whining!

The cop was doing his job. Barker's hissy fit on Twitter just shows what a douche he is. Good job to the cop and sympathies to this creep's kids.
