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."

I didn't think I could hate this guy more, but here he goes proving anything is possible. What a self entitled prick, no plate and below legal level of tint degree and he has the audacity to get pissy for being pulled over? You look like a douche, act like a douche then you must be one.

I say way to go to him for standing up for his rights and making the encounter public. Another unnecessary profiling and hassle job by LAPD. Police mistreatment of innocent citizens happens every day. Beware, any one of us could be next, or have you not been watching the news lately?

Travis Isn't the kind of the guy that would be arrogant and verbally ignorant with cops in person for no reason. Maybe there was no confrontation and Barker chose to tweet about what happened? No ones a judge here and no ones definitely a SAINT here!!

I support Travis Barker on this one!

I'll bet if he had simply said "Lindsay Lohan", the officer would've just tucked tail and split. Los Angeles, you know.

Blanco basura! We know that...But why is Sgt Rigs so Starstruck? Would he have a meeting with some poor black kid who got pulled over for less than Barker's laundry list of violations? I bet not...

Its funny that Travis says"get some bank robbers". Bank robbers are some of the only people I can image that would ever drive around without a license plate on the car! It is the biggest red flag you can flash to drive around without a plate. Are you kidding dude? So a cop who rolls up on your dumb ass,( no plate,cant see into the car) is supposed to think "oh that must be Travis Barker and his children lets not bother him about not having plates on his pimped out low rider" WHF Travis, you just proved how much of a stupid prick you really are. Why dont they go catch some bank robbers? What a child you are. Grow the hell up dude.

Travis Barker????? Where do I begin? Spoiled Little Bitch. 5'2" ,120 pounds, a mouth of a MMA fighter and a Body Guard to protect it. He is a Drummer in a LAME ASS Boy Band who made a little money and now he thinks he gets to enjoy some kind of special treatment. Come On Jack Ass Get a Life. Cops pull over people without license plates and Limo Tint on their windows, thats what they do. He is so irrelevant that he has to use getting pulled over for a legit reason to get his name back in the news.

I bet cry baby Travis wants to talk 'Privately' IF at all because what he tweeted I doubt is really how it went down.

Hey Whiner, 'Who' initiated this by breaking 2 laws??
I wish LAPD would release the audio which each officer has so we can see what a cry baby liar wannabe tough guy Baby Barker is.
Wimp.
