The NYPD is under investigation for fixing the tickets of celebrities and higher up political figures, including a recent speeding ticket issued to Jay-Z’s driver and A-Rod.  According to the Daily News, a highway cop wrote up a ticket on A-Rod for speeding on the West Side Highway, but an a sergeant later “squashed it.” Former Yankees owner George Steinbrenner and several City Council members have also received similar breaks. Bronx prosecutors and the Internal Affairs Bureau are now conducting investigations into the matter.

Sergeants Benevolent blankociation President Edward Mullins called on members to give testimonials about ticket-fixing. The clout surrounding these public figures is so large, representatives of celebrities and politicians were known to call the Police Headquarters directly to resolve their client and their client’s families’ tickets. Sympathetic cops would then acquiesce by “improperly voiding tickets, losing paperwork or purposely missing court dates in order to squash summonses.”

It is estimated that around 40 officers could be indicted for their preferential treatment. Not even a month ago, a probe was initiated after Jay-Z received a police escort to a concert after party.
