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.

Others may object at being put farther down on your list of priorities, but that's their problem.More
