Ice-T was arrested on Wednesday for driving through a toll plaza without paying, reports TMZ.
He reportedly drove to New York, driving a red McLaren sports car, when he did not pay the toll for the George Washington Bridge. Port Authority police arrested the rapper and actor, who lives in Edgewater, after he was seen driving in the E-ZPass lane.
The police arrested him for evading a toll and for having an unregistered vehicle.
Ice-T told TMZ that he had forgotten his E-ZPass, since the car was brand new, and he had seven different brands on his other cars at home.
& # 39; The cops were a little more & # 39;
Ice-T, a native of Newark, has played with Sergeant Odafin Tutuola in "Law and Order: Special Victims Unit" for 18 years. He reportedly went directly to the set after being released by the police.
Born in Tracy Marrow, Ice-T, 60, grew up in Summit before moving to the West Coast and is credited with the origin of gangsta rap.
In 1992, Ice had a different kind of confrontation with the police. He decided to release a song called "Cop Killer" from an album with his metal band Body Count due to criticism that led his record company to receive death threats.
"The cops were a little bit more," he wrote on Twitter on Wednesday afternoon, sharing the TMZ story. "I could have written a ticket, inside and outside … Moovin."
Apparently, Ice was charged with theft of services and issued a citation for having an unregistered vehicle without a license plate.
The ice marveled at the news of his arrest and traffic tickets.
"This is serious CRIME!" He tweeted, posting a photo of Channel 7 coverage.
"What I've noticed is that ANY slightly negative news about you … will take your enemies to the party," he said.
