Outspoken rapper and actor Ice-T, who is perhaps best known for his work on the crime procedural Law & Order: Special Victims Unit at this stage of his career, has been cleared of traffic charges levied against him last month in New York City. T, 52, was pulled over and charged with driving with a suspended license and invalid insurance, as well as driving without a seat belt.
Upon his arrest, Ice-T was adamant about the charges being erroneous, even angrily posting about the matter on his Twitter account. Prosecutors blamed the incorrect charges on a DMV clerical error. Comedian Dane Cook calls the DMV the ninth circle of Hell and I doubt that Ice-T would disagree with that assessment, given all the legal headaches he had to endure over a paper trail mistake. Ugh! I feel for him.
Ice-T reportedly shouted "That's what I'm talking about — dismissed" upon exiting the courtroom.
Should Ice-T write a rap song about this egregious mistake?
