Ice–T has been arrested in New York City. The “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” actor was pulled over by police around 6:56 am on Wednesday, Oct. 24, 2018, after driving 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 recognizance. 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 hopped on 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..”
But he then changed the subject to reveal his 2-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.”
