LeBron James is Summit County's (Ohio) most famous and highest-paid resident, but it didn't get him out of jury duty.
James tweeted a photo of himself as he was leaving his house Thursday morning and wrote "time to serve my civic duty." He was bringing along a book in case he had a long wait before being called.

James drew a buzz at the county courthouse in downtown Akron but was not seated on a jury for trial and left the building at 10:30 a.m., according to the Akron Beacon Journal.
He has been spending time in his hometown and working out for the past several weeks since returning from a promotional tour to the Philippines and China. This weekend James is hosting several charity events in the city.
