“Yes,Ice was arrested this morning but we don’t know what the hell for!He’s been released..We got pulled over for not wearing seatbelts.”
” I believe when the cop saw Ice he immediately had a hard-on for him & he wanted 2 take him in for something,anything!He was released already”

Ice also hit up Twitter to speak on what exactly went down.
“Some punk b*tch rookie cop named Fisher #10026 Made the arrest of his bullshit career today. Arresting the Notorious Ice T for no seatbelt..”
“Out in 20 min. Come on son! #FLTG.”
” He said “I know who you are and I don’t give a f*ck!” That was right after I called him a punk b*tch.. Then they questioned me about FLTG.”
” Honestly, The fact that it made national news in 10min. Raises the question… How petty is our news today? What about the War and the Gulf?” (Ice-T’s Twitter)
