    After being arrested for driving with a suspended license, Ice-T took aim at the NYPD via Twitter.

    Police say the rapper-turned actor was was driving a 2009 Cadillac near West  40th Street and 11th Avenue when they stopped him for not wearing a seat belt.  

    "Some punk (expletive) rookie cop named Fisher #1---6 Made the arrest of his (expletive.) career today," Ice-T wrote on his Twitter feed. "Arresting the Notorious Ice T for no seatbelt."

    Cops said they ran a check and discovered his license was suspended. The NYPD said the  "Law & Order: SVU" star was being given a ticket and released on Tuesday.

    Ice-T continued on Twitter: "(The cop) said "I know who you are and I don't give a (expletive)!" That was right after I called him a punk  (expletive.)"

    His publicist did not immediately respond to a request for comment. What else is there to say?
