50 Cent Caught Driving Without a License

New York City Police caused a stir Friday afternoon when they pulled over a silver Lamborghini for making an unsafe lane change in midtown Manhattan, only to discover that the Lambo's driver was none other than Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson.
As onlookers booed and shouted "Don't arrest him!", the cops lead Fiddy away in handcuffs, and called a tow truck to haul away his car. Why the harsh treatment? Turns out the G-Unit leader was driving without his license, registration and proof of insurance. He was taken to a nearby police station and issued summonses of each of those three infractions, along with a fourth for his sketchy lane change.
All in all, it's a fairly minor brush with the law for the former drug dealer turned rap star, who faces at most about $200 in fines for his poor conduct. And his car, worth about $200,000, was reportedly returned unharmed.
