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.

SERIOUSLY?????
.
I knew this man had an ego, but a four cop escort ALL THE TIME?.
.
Someone needs to stick a fork in that man and deflate him back to reality. And what police force can afford four cops? I sure hope to hell they are off duty.

This was strictly for show! The City of Providence shut down all the streets surrounding the Dunk Center for blocks!.......


Sabin Street, in front of the Dunk and the Rhode Island Convention Center, is being shut down between Mathewson and Empire Streets.

Simon could of walked there without being bothered!

I love Simon's scooter and it would be great for me as I have mobility issues due to my disabilities and unfortunately I don't have a drivers licence. Would love to know where to get one of these!

Sure wished the police would have escorted Simon out of town. Simon needs to man-up and ride a chopped Harley with a suicide shift. lol
