FORT LEE, N.J. – Police have arrested Ice-T after he failed to pay a toll at the George Washington Bridge.
Authorities say the actor and rapper was ticketed for theft of services Wednesday when he drove through an E-ZPass lane leading to the span connecting New Jersey and New York. The 60-year-old, whose real name is Tracy Marrow, was driving a new McLaren sports car and was also ticketed for not having license plates and registration.
Ice-T reportedly forgot his electronic toll transponder and has them for his other vehicles.
Ice-T tweeted “Cops went a little Extra. Coulda just wrote a ticket. In and out … Moovin.”
He later tweeted a photo of himself filming scenes in Manhattan for “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit,” in which he plays Sgt. Odafin Tutuola.
