Usher

Cop Chase Ends with Photo Op

But NO TICKET [VIDEO]

5/6/2014 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

050514_usher_launch_v2
Usher's celebrity burns bright on the Sunset Strip -- so bright he can turn a chasing cop into a photo-seeking fan and walk off Scot-free.

The video is nuts -- you can see Usher driving on Sunset early Sunday morning (around 2AM) as he's aggressively followed by an L.A. County Sheriff's deputy.  At one point, Usher coasts through a yellow light ... and the cop car zips after him, running a red.

Usher pulls over outside Rock & Reilly's Pub -- and next thing you see is the deputy posing with the singer for a photo ... inside the bar.

A Sheriff's source insists it was NOT a traffic stop ... but the car's red and blues are flashing and the spotlight is pointed toward Usher's whip.  And it appears Usher had been speeding when he first caught the deputy's eye.

The source added it's NOT against the rules for deputies to take pics with celebs.

I hate usher because he ruined The Voice. He is just unwatchable and talentless. He is the square peg on that show for sure

Cops in LA either take pictures with celebrities or investigate egging incidents. At least all of you out there are free to commit real crimes I guess!!

TMZ stretching the truth. First I saw no lights while the cops were following him. Second I didn't see what transpired between the cop and usher during the actual stop. Do you know that we have eyes too?

this is the same department, a couple weeks ago, who shot and killed an innocent person running out of an apartment building while trying to help a victim who was in a violent domestic dispute. maybe L.A. County Sheriff department should better train and monitor what those officers are actually doing out in the field, ya think ?
