The singer hangs out with officers of the law in the Big Apple

Harry Styles was spotted with police officers in New York yesterday.

But the One Direction singer, 19, wasn’t in trouble – he’d just asked the cops if he could take a picture with them.

Cheeky Harry stuck his tongue out for the snap and even managed to persuade one bobby to let him wear his hat.

‘NYPD are nice,’ Tweeted Harry, alongside the funny Instagram photo.

1D are currently on the American leg of their Take Me Home world tour and are set to play in East Rutherford, New Jersey tonight.

The lads battled through wet weather to perform at New York’s outdoor Nikon At Jones Beach Theater on Friday.

‘Jones Beach, you were amazing through the rain. Thanks for having us, see you tomorrow .x,’ Tweeted Harry that evening.
