Ice-T Arrested for Driving Violation

He might play a detective on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, but that doesn’t give Ice-T a pass with the boys in blue. The West Coast rap legend and accomplished actor was arrested earlier today (July 20) for a driving violation.

According to tmz.com, Ice was pulled over in New York City after he was spotted by the NYPD for driving without his seat belt. Upon further investigation, authorities allegedly cuffed T for being behind the wheel with a suspended license.

He was taken into custody at the 10th Precinct in Chelsea and quickly released.

Ice-T wrote on his Twitter earlier today that he and his wife, Coco, were taking their dog, Spartacus, to the veterinarian for knee surgery.

Ice has yet to comment on the arrest. —Elan Mancini

      Ice T wasn’t the first gangster rapper. Schooly D was doing it before him. Ice T even admits that he was imitating Schooly D when he mad 6 N Da Morning. With that said, he is still one of the originals

    I wonder if he wasn’t black would the whole no seatbelt thing would have been a issue. Because if that was Zac Efron [or the Vanilla Flavor of the Month] who did this he would have likely got a police escort to the vet to save the damn dog. The arrest might have been legit but the cause for the pull over was “cute”. Cops pull that crap out many times just to harass people. I’ll never forget a cop said I didn’t have a seatbelt on and I clearly had one on. I know what my real charge was driving while black in a half ass white suburb. I didn’t get a ticket but the a**hole didn’t apologize either. And I know why – he was hoping I had a record so he could be big man and when he checked my license he came back irritated to find out I had no record. Then he proceeded to act like he was doing me a favor by saying “I gonna let you go this time.”. Clearly I wanted to tell that fool “B!tch Please” but I also didn’t want to be shot to death and on the six o’clock news sprinkled with crack.

    Ice T is in trouble with the cops??? I guess dissin Po-Po and then playing a cop on television doesn’t give him a pass. I guess bangin’ that white chick didn’t help (joking).

    Ice T probably was speeding. Anyway….. Yall cops need to lock some real gangstas up. Not niggas with jobs.

    Nothing but media fodder.

    NYPD pulls over ANYBODY, and EVERYBODY, takes you in, then releases you, NO CITATIONS.

    Getting in trouble with the police for not wearing your seat belt after making the song “cop killer” is about as gangsta as having a refreshing, summer-time beverage for a rap name.
