Allen Iverson's Lamborghini Impounded: 'Do You Know Who I Am?'

If you think only active sports stars have an attitude problem, think again.

Ex-NBA bad boy Allen Iverson demonstrated last week that the notion of entitlement doesn't end with retirement.

He spent twenty minutes throwing a self-indulgent hissy fit at a Georgia police when they impounded his Lamborghini.

He's lucky he didn't get hauled in.

Allen Iverson was reportedly driving through Atlanta on March 30 when he was pulled over for changing lanes without signaling. The tags on his vehicle expired in 2009.

In fact, the police report states that Iverson had actually tried to conceal his expired tags with fake ones, reports the Daily News.

Iverson, who ended his NBA career in Feb. 2010, was not amused with the officer, though the officer should have been amused with him.

Not only did the officer learn that Iverson makes "more money than [he] will in 10 years," TMZ reports that he also found out that it was okay to impound Iverson's car--he has 10 more.

Allen Iverson really didn't handle this situation correctly.

If his little tirade was as bad as the media is making it out to be (there was a lot f bombing going on), he could have landed in the back of the police car on charges of disorderly conduct.

He might of also gotten in trouble for assault--which only requires a showing that Iverson made the officer reasonably fear that he was about to hurt him.

Luckily for pouty Allen Iverson, none of that happened. Instead he's going to have some fines to pay for concealing tags, driving with expired tags, and removing his Lamborghini from impound.

But hey, if he has 10 Lamborghinis, why should he care?
