Enrique Iglesias allegedly tried to pull a fast one on Miami police officers. The “Hero” singer was arrested in Florida on May 6 after being pulled over in a Cadillac Escalade for driving in a closed express lane — and then trying to ditch his seat.

According to Florida Highway Patrol, Iglesias was driving the vehicle and when Miami police pulled him over, he allegedly "jumped from inside the driver's seat into the rear passenger seat while his male passenger jumped from the front passenger seat onto the driver's seat."

The cops weren’t fooled and both Iglesias and Abel Tabuyo were arrested.

Iglesias was charged with obstruction without violence and driving with a suspended license.

Iglesias, who later badly injured his hand during a May 30 concert in Tijuana, Mexico, and Tabuyo, who was also charged with obstruction, plead not guilty and are due in court July 10.
