Ice T cleared of driving charges

Ice-T has been cleared of driving charges

Ice-T has been cleared of 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 on Tuesday.

The star was charged after being accused of driving without a valid licence.

The entertainer, born Tracy Marrow, said last month when he was arrested that he had a valid New Jersey licence.

Prosecutors said New York Department Of Motor Vehicles records wrongly reflected that his licence 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.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Aries:

Wanderlust may be too powerful to resist. Planning a long holiday will be a pleasant diversion from work. You don't have to have fancy accommodation. You're willing to rough it for an adventure, but you do want to get good value for your money. Doing some research into the best places to stay and eat will pay off handsomely. Take along a friend who is free spirited and eager to explore unfamiliar vistas. The two of you will make great travelling companions.More
