Ice-T has been arrested in New York City.
The ‘Law & Order: Special Victims Unit’ actor was pulled over by police at around 6.56am on Wednesday (24.10.18) after pulling through a toll on the George Washington Bridge without paying.
And officers also noticed the 60-year-old star – whose real name is Tracy Marrow – hadn’t registered the new car he was driving, a red McLaren.
Ice-T was charged with theft of services, issued a summons and was later released on his own recognisance. He was also issued a summons for not having plates and registration.
Though it had been reported the rapper had an E-ZPass in his car to get through the toll but it had failed to work, a source told ‘Entertainment Tonight’ that he had no E-ZPass transmitter in the vehicle.
The ‘Colors‘ rapper took to Twitter shortly after being released by police and admitted he felt he’d been treated harshly.
He posted: ”Cops went a little Extra. Coulda just wrote a ticket. In and out.. Moovin.
”I love how people think just because I ACT like a cop on SVU I get special treatment from real cops… lol.(sic)”
But he then changed the subject to reveal his two-year-old daughter Chanel had had a great time visiting a carnival with her mother Coco Austin.
He posted: ”In more IMPORTANT news… Chanel rode her first Roller Coaster! #Thingsthatmatter.(sic)”
Coco, 39, previously spoke of how much her daughter is just like Ice.
She said: ”It’s funny, we both have the side-eye thing going. Ice has the side eye. Everyone knows his famous side eye. She’s got her side eye down pat. It’s hilarious.”
