D.C. Police allegedly used lights and sirens as they escorted Sheen from Dulles to his stage show at DAR Constitution Hall on Tuesday. At the time, Sheen was running an hour late for his show.

Sheen tweeted about the ride and included a picture of a speedometer reaching about 80 mph.

Lanier released a statement saying that if the allegations are true, the escort violated several aspects of department policy.

She said it is not the department's practice to utilize emergency equipment for non-emergency situations, and members of the MPD generally do not operate in another jurisdiction without the assistance of a partner agency. It also appears that the approval process for reimbursable security details was not followed.

Lanier says written policy states MPD police escorts are also generally reserved for the president, vice president, visiting heads of state, and the D.C. mayor.
