Simon Cowell

SURROUNDED BY COPS

... On Tiny Scooter

6/28/2012 11:32 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Just Simon Cowell on a scooter.
Police were ALL OVER Simon Cowell this morning in Rhode Island -- providing a 4-cop escort just for the "X Factor" judge on his way to auditions ... while he rode on a dinky little scooter.

Simon usually gets a police escort when he's driven around for "X Factor" stuff, but he's typically holed up safely in a fancy car. The tiny scooter's a first.

Luckily, Simon didn't have to drive far -- the Dunkin' Donuts center (where auditions are being held) is only 4 blocks away from his hotel.

So cops just sit and watch while he violates RI helmet law. http://www.bikersrights.com/states/rhodeisland/rhodeisland.html

Wish someone would call the cops and ask why he is escort to break the law.

I live in RI and he could have walked. It's not even 4 blocks. His hotel is connected to the RI Convention Center. All he had to do was walk between the Westin and Convention Center, out the door and he would be at the Dunkin Donuts Center.

Why did he need police protection? And who paid for the escort?

You still can get shot, Simon. I guess your rent-a-cops could probably catch him, though.

That's stupid! Are these cops volunteered to do so or the tax payers have to pay for the expenses. I don't care who you are, using tax payers' money for personal use is ridiculous!

Amazing how he's managing to balance his enormous ego and not fall from that tiny scooter.

Seriously, do us all a favor and go back home, you've made your millions here in the USA. Tired of seeing you in those tight ass pants and shirt that you got from the baby Gap store. Mother fukr

It's a Kick 'n Go with an engine! Cool!
Simon is feeling some nostalgia :D
Simon's a pretty fun guy, he gets a bad rep because he's straightforward as a talent judge, rather than a fake dishonest hand clapper who pretends an act is good when it's not :D
