Miami Heat star LeBron James reported for jury duty in Summit County, Ohio on Thursday but did not make the cut.
James, an Akron resident, tweeted a photo of himself and wrote "time to serve my civic duty" as he headed to court. He also brought a book with him as he prepared for a long wait.
James created a buzz when he arrived at the county courthouse in downtown Akron but was dismissed and left the building at 10:30 a.m., the Akron Beacon-Journal reported.
The two-time NBA champion has been working out in Akron this offseason and recently returned from a promotional tour in the Philippines and China. He is also hosting several charity events in his hometown.
