Ice-T is in hot water. According to TMZ, the Gangsta-rapper-turned-actor was pulled over by New York City police officers early Tuesday morning, for driving without a seatbelt. Police then arrested him for operating a motor vehicle without a license.
Ice-T is currently known for his portrayal of tough guy NYPD Detective “Odafin ‘Fin’ Tutuola” on the NBC-TV drama “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.”
Ice-T, whose real name is Tracy Morrow, was handcuffed, taken to the 10th precinct in lower Manhattan, processed and then released.
The entertainer, who has had a controversial career as a rapper, released the 1992 hit “Cop Killer,” when he was the lead member of the group Body Count. The lyrics, which he wrote, tell the tale of someone who is outraged about police brutality and makes the decision to take the law in to his own hands by killing police officers.
