Solihull millionaire and self proclaimed ‘Lord’ Aleem has apologised to police for losing his temper after he was pulled over in his new Lamborghini.
Hours after taking delivery of a £550,000 Lamborghini Aventador SV Roadster, Aleem was filmed arguing with police officers who stopped him in Digbeth for a routine check.
In footage, an agitated Aleem, 21, stands in front of the passenger window filming police officers 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.”
The gathered crowd jeers and a camera crew stands in front of Aleem filming the incident.
Aleem, whose full name is Aleem Iqbal, boasts that the video is going straight onto YouTube “tonight” and chats to the intrigued crowd before driving off in the direction of Selfridges.
Hours before, Aleem proudly took delivery of the new white supercar, registration 41EEM, stating he was: “Lost for words.”
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.”
