Carmelo Anthony just bragged about getting a police escort through the streets of New York City — there’s just one problem … the NYPD tells us it’s against PD policy to give police escorts to celebrities for no good reason.

The NY Knicks star just posted footage shot from inside of a car … which is following a police vehicle that is driving against traffic on the opposite side of the street with sirens and lights blaring. 

You can hear Anthony saying, “Ain’t nothing like a police escort in all this traffic.”

We spoke with a NYPD spokesperson who tells us … “As a policy, we do not give police escorts through traffic for celebrities.”

It’s possible Carmelo’s car was following the cop car without the officer’s awareness or approval — but it seems unlikely since Melo’s car was driving against traffic on the opposite side of the street.
