Ice-T cleared in NYC unlicensed-driving case
Rapper-actor challenged charge that was dismissed Tues.NEW YORK -- Ice-T has been cleared of unlicensed driving charges stemming from a New York City arrest.
The rapper-actor called out "that's what I'm talking about -- dismissed!" in a Manhattan courtroom Tuesday. Prosecutors did just that to the misdemeanor case.
The entertainer, born Tracy Marrow, said last month when he was arrested that he had a valid New Jersey license. Prosecutors said Tuesday that New York Department of Motor Vehicles records wrongly reflected that his license was suspended because of a lack of insurance. His 2009 Cadillac is insured and registered in New Jersey.
Ice-T says he didn't know about the glitch in New York records and "never broke the law."
He plays Detective Fin Tutuola on the TV drama "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit."
