A self-styled 'Lord' has apologised for a rant to police who had pulled him over in his new $A993,000 Lamborghini, in which he told them his shoes cost more than their wages.
The 21-year-old lost his temper with the cops and said in his apology he is tired of being harassed by police because he is "young and drives nice cars", The Sun reported.
Millionaire 'Lord' Aleem Iqbal, who boasts of his supercar collection on social media, was pulled over by police and as he ranted at the officers a crowd gathered in Digbeth, Birmingham.
Someone filmed the encounter and Aleem said the video would be on YouTube by the evening.
"Why are you looking at me? Trust me bro, my shoes are probably worth more than your f***ing wages," Aleem was filmed saying to officers hours after he had taken delivery of a new car to add to his collection," he said.
"Don't look at me like that."
His agent Mark Brewer has since apologised for his behaviour.
"Having had time to reflect on what happened and having spoken to his family, Aleem would like to apologise to the police officers involved for the way the situation escalated," he said.
"Aleem would like to stress that wasn't shown in the video was the police officers involved harassing him and forcing him to pull over for 'having cars follow him'.
Is that even a legit reason to pull me over? How do I stop people following me mate! #LordAleem A video posted by Lord Aleem (@lordaleem_official) on Jun 24, 2016 at 12:40pm PDT

"Yes, Aleem admits he can get carried away from time to time and said "I'm tired of being harassed by police just because I'm young and drive nice cars. Although that doesn't excuse my behaviour towards the police officers in the video, I hope this paints a clearer picture as to why I reacted the way that I did"."
Editor of the I Am Birmingham website Adam Yosef described the scene.
"As I turned on Moat Lane in Digbeth, I saw a small crowd shouting and cheering outside the outdoor markets, opposite the Bull ring Tavern," he told the Birmingham Mail.
"As I moved in closer, I realised it was local car enthusiast Aleem Iqbal in a confrontation with a couple of police officers in front of a gleaming white Lamborghini supercar, which I assumed was his.
"I wasn't surprised he was driving the vehicle, or that it appeared police had stopped him.
"What did surprise me was the abuse and insults he was hurling at the two officers, who were then forced to get on their way.
"I wasn't sure if he was genuinely being arrogant and rude, or whether he was putting on a show for his film crew of around three young camera men.
"Either way, I felt it was uncalled for and disrespectful."
West Midlands Police confirmed officers stopped a car for a routine check. A spokeswoman said checks were made in four minutes.
Mr Brewer added Aleem had flown to Lebanon to stay in a refugee camp after raising nearly $A2300 on a Just Giving page.
"Aleem loves to share his experiences with his young fans and often uses them to reach out to under privileged kids and inspire them to achieve," he said.
"As well as using the cars to do good, Aleem is also a passionate campaigner for the Syrian refugee crisis and is actively raising funds to help those in dire need."
