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.

Sometimes this sensitivity can inhibit you from doing what you really want. You're afraid of offending people with your bold ideas. Instead of repressing your instincts, obey them. If you've developed a romantic interest in someone special, make your move. Playing the aggressor will boost your confidence. Keep your conversations light and playful.More
