LeBron James discovered that a multi-million dollar contract and winning two NBA Finals doesn’t exclude him from  being called to serve jury duty.

Earlier today, James tweeted that he would have to serve jury duty in Akron, Ohio. He dressed in slacks, a polo shirt and a jacket. He also took a book with him to read in case things got a little boring.

Once James arrived at the courthouse, the scene became chaotic as individuals swarmed to get a glimpse or picture of James in court.

However, James didn’t stay long. The judge dismissed him shortly after he arrived in the courtroom.
