Could Tampa police boycott Beyonce's concert at Raymond James Stadium?



Police across the country have expressed their displeasure of late with Beyonce in the wake of the video for her new single Formation, which some have argued has an anti-cop message.

Some cops are giving Beyonce the cold shoulder by boycotting her concerts and refusing to work off-duty security details at her shows. It's already happening for her tour opener on April 27 in Miami -- but what about her April 29 show in Tampa?

"It's still two months away," Tampa Police spokesman Stephen Hegarty said in an email. "We wouldn't expect all the slots to be filled at this point for an event in April. We have plenty of events before that."

Still, some local cops are fired up about Queen B. For more, click here for Tony Marrero's story.
