Travis Barker takes to Twitter to air his grievance at LAPD

Travis Barker temporarily stopped playing the drums to vent his fury online after being stopped by a police officer from the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD).

The Blink-182 drummer, famous for the number of tattoos he has adorned all over his body, was annoyed that he was pulled over for a minor incident.

"Officer FARD of LAPD, get a life man. Find some bank robbers or do something productive 2 do with your time. I know high school was hard 4 u," he tweeted.

Barker was stopped for allegedly having no license plate and tinted windows, which are illegal.

"Pullin me over interrogating me & acting like u did over tinted windows till u scared the [life] out my kids was uncalled 4. Job well done man," he added.

Showing that they are caring and compassionate police officers, the LAPD's Sergeant Riggs invited the respected drum-player to the station to settle the grievance, TMZ said.

Barker has joined forces with Steve Aoki to lend his musical prowess on the electric house star's debut studio album Wonderland, which comes out later this month.
