*TMZ has footage of Usher’s car being pursued by LAPD on LA’s Sunset Blvd, and ending with the singer posing for a photo with the cop who chased him…with no ticket issued. [Scroll down to watch.]

The website reports:

The video is nuts — you can see Usher driving on Sunset early Sunday morning (around 2AM) as he’s aggressively followed by an L.A. County Sheriff’s deputy. At one point, Usher coasts through a yellow light … and the cop car zips after him, running a red.

Usher pulls over outside Rock & Reilly’s Pub — and next thing you see is the deputy posing with the singer for a photo … inside the bar.

A Sheriff’s source insists it was NOT a traffic stop … but the car’s red and blues are flashing and the spotlight is pointed toward Usher’s whip. And it appears Usher had been speeding when he first caught the deputy’s eye.

The source added it’s NOT against the rules for deputies to take pics with celebs.
