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."

Barker is yet another self indulgent, has been reality show *******. Limo tint is a safety issue, first and foremost. If a police officer can't see inside your vehicle, then their life is at risk which in turn puts your life at risk when they pull their weapon out. He knew the tint was illegal, but he thought the great Travis Barker was exempt from the law. The same with asking about firearms. It's for their protection and your mutual safety. And, why doesn't he have a tag on his car? Police could easily conclude it was a drug runner. So, man up and grow up, Travis. You should be thanking the LAPD for keeping the roads safe instead of going on your drug affected dead brain cell rant.

Idiot. He should be arrested for going around with his pants falling down -- worst dresser ever. As far as this incident, stars always think they are above the "LAW."

This guy is a moron the only person to blame is himself. Driving without a plate is plain stupid second they ask anyone especially someone with dark tint if they have a weapon. That's one of the reasons why it's illegal because the police can't see if you are reaching for something as they approach!

PT    

now you've done it Mr. Barker. Expect increased scrutiny now from the "boys in blue". They don't take kindly to being criticized, and are probably going to make your life a living hell from now on.

So, because he is a "celebrity" you want to speak with him?? Really, I bet Joe Blow down the street wouldn't get the same treatment... As a police officer's wife, I am sure the officer was simply doing his job...
