ATLANTA, April 7 (UPI) -- Former NBA star Allen Iverson has apologized for his actions during a traffic stop in which his Italian 2007 Lamborghini Murcielago was towed.

Atlanta Police pulled over Iverson's car after witnessing its driver, Antwuan Clisby, switch lanes without signaling. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution said Iverson, a passenger in the car, became upset during the March 30 stop and allegedly began cursing the officer, S.J. Durham.

The car had a dealer tag and when Durham ran it through the computer, he discovered it was two years old. The officer said Iverson got especially angry when he called a tow truck to remove the sports car.

"Take the vehicle, I have 10 more," Iverson reportedly told Durham. "Police don't have anything else [expletive] to do except [expletive] with me. ... Do you know who I am?"

Iverson later apologized.

"He stated he was just upset about his car," Durham wrote in his report.

Iverson now plays for Besiktas, a Turkish Basketball League team.
