Aleem Iqbal has apologised to police after a new video emerged showing him losing his temper after they pulled him over in his new Lamborghini.
In a new video recorded by Adam Yosef, editor of the I Am Birmingham website, Aleem can be seen arguing with police and telling them ‘trust me bro, my shoes are probably worth more than your ******* wages.’
In the video Aleem can be seen standing at the side of the police car saying: “Why you looking at me? Trust me bro, my shoes are probably worth more than your ******* wages.
He goes on “Don’t look at me like that.”
He continued the one-sided exchange until the officers drove away and then he can be seen talking to the crowd before driving away himself.
Aleem’s agent, Mark Brewer, said Aleem was sorry for his conduct.
He said in a statement: “Having had time to reflect on what happened and having spoken to his family, Aleem would and also like to apologise to the police officers involved for the way the situation escalated.
“Aleem would like to stress that what wasn’t shown in the video was the police officers involved harassing him and forcing him to pull over for ‘having cars follow him’.
“Yes, Aleem admits he can get carried away from time to time and said, “I’m tired of being harassed by police just because I’m young and drive nice cars.
“Although that doesn’t excuse my behaviour towards the police officers in the video, I hope this paints a clearer picture as to why I reacted the way that I did.”
Adam Yosef, editor of the I Am Birmingham website, who recorded the footage said Aleem was ‘visibly angry’ at being stopped and ‘lashed out at the officers once they got back in their car’
