Ice-T was arrested in New Jersey Wednesday morning after driving through a bridge toll without paying the fee -- real hardened criminal stuff!

According to TMZ, the "Law & Order: SVU" star was approaching the George Washington Bridge on the New Jersey side when he tried crossing into the E-ZPass lane, which is for drivers who prepay tolls with a transmitter. Unbeknownst to Ice, his transmitter didn't work.

The rapper-turned-actor was quickly pulled over by police for evading the toll.

Upon being pulled over, police discovered that the car Ice was in, a brand new McLaren, wasn't registered. Ice was arrested on toll evasion and for driving an unregistered vehicle.

The car, he said, is new and was shipped from California.

Ice was quickly released.

"Cops went a little Extra. Coulda just wrote a ticket. In and out.. Moovin," Ice tweeted on Oct. 24. He later added, "I love how people think just because I ACT like a cop on SVU I get special treatment from real cops... lol."
